Syracuse developers: We don't want to miss out on Utica

UTICA, N.Y.(WKTV)-- Developers from Syracuse say Utica is rebounding and it's an opportunity they didn't want to miss out on.

Following a lot of positive economic news with Nano Utica and Harbor Point, Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri was excited to announce Thursday that Summit Realty Management bought the former MetLife building in the Utica Business Park.

"National, regional and local companies at this point see the city as a vibrant attraction to economic development," said Mayor Palmieri.

In just a few months, the vacant rooms and deserted halls will be bustling again.

"These two would not be here if there was not going to be a return. I think they see something I've seen for a while, but now it's starting to manifest itself," said Mayor Palmieri.

The first one is ORBCOMM, a communication business that monitors machinery using satellites world-wide. Once they move in, they'll be looking to hire five engineers.

Summit Realty Management will also be hiring local construction companies and using local materials to refurbish the building and property.

The Utica Business Park has other vacant buildings. When asked if he was hoping this would inspire other developers, Mayor Palmieri was quick to say, "I'm not hoping. I know it will, I absolutely do."

Summit Realty Management says their work here isn't done.

"There's a momentum in this area and we've made this investment and it's our intent and our expectations that we'll continue to look for other opportunities in the Utica area," said John Murphy, President of Summit Realty Management.

You must work for the Governor of Texas. He came up to NY last year because he is angry that we are stealing all of his business.

The story speaks for itself. Developers want to be part of the great future of Utica.

I think your right. It seems like we have a few detractors on topic. What is there interest to see Utica fail? With so many positive news stories in the last couple of years it makes you wonder.

I think it's an organized public relation effort to discredit what's going on here. Again the question, Why?

So again. Who's paying me? And no I'm not here all day big guy but you have your opinion. Again, who's paying me mental midget?
You must have some motive to bash the area 24/7. Either you profit as a slum lord or benefit from the status quo or someone is paying you. What I witness from all your post is a well organized public relation smear campaign. That's what it is? My question is why and who is paying you?
Yep

I see that guy/girl have the last comment all the time. It does make you wonder.

This is big news getting a buyer for the Metlife building in the Utica Business Park.

Maybe if the person spent as much time getting a job and not playing the victim as they did on topic they could be part of the many recent successes in the area as well.

You must be right. We have no response. It's the guy from Whitesboro St that bashes everyone. He lives on the second floor apartment He should get a job. I wonder if could use medicaid to get help. It's a shame because he seems like a very smart guy. He has just given up.
