Jerry, maybe they do not want to build their factory in an earthquake zone out west or place that has mud slides and big fires every year. Down South? Have you read the stories about all the sink holes in Florida? Sure that's were I would want to put my factory.
Utica is right in the center of it all .Between Toronto,Buffalo,Rochester,Syra cuse,Albany,NYC,Montreal,Bosto n,Philadelphia,Cleveland and Pittsburg. We
our hours away from trillions of dollars worth of wealth. We are the center of it all.
Nobody in the world touches themselves harder and more vigouresly than you. You do realize the "harbor project" has been sold to the utican region since 1991 right? It's 2013. Lol

There are no new customers for a new plant in that range.
The Observer Dispatch is hardly the Go-To info source for who is building foundries. They are in oversupply and the handful of corporations in the game are either building elsewhere or have stated they are not interested. You have been sold a dream no matter what Albany and the OD tell you.
Well, they certainly don't have much credibility. And it would be a stunning turn of events, given the incompetence around here, for them to pull off something this big. But man, they are really going out on a limb, and it isn't even an election year!

This scenario will be played out for years to come in utica even well after the new place is built in malta. Lol

Sadly, you're probably right. I'll believe it when they have a giant job fare here looking for thousands of employees.

Well, the capital region seems to be landing these gigs. It's the local retreads who think that another "Dollar General" groundbreaking is proof positive we're on our back, who are the problem.

Hey,rocket scientist,have you ever considered that the global economy has changed over the last sixty years.

Christmas is not better down south. If you like it so much please move. Won't your wife let you? Who wears the pants in the family you fag. You can have your a legators, sharks,fake crap grass,hurricanes and sink holes you a hole.

They "went out on a limb" back in 2006 with the announcement of hundreds of high paying IT jobs with the state's new data processing center at SUNY-IT:

http://www.wktv.com/news/local/4443417.html

Seven years later we have exactly...zero jobs.

They "went out on a limb" back in 2009 with the announcement of hundreds of high paying nanotechnology jobs with nfrastructure at SUNY-IT:

http://assembly.state.ny.us/Press/20100819/

Four years later we have exactly...zero jobs.

And lets not forget that this debacle really got rollin' back in 2010, an election year, when Quad-C first started "construction":

http://www.sunycnse.com/Newsroom/MediaCenter/...

That facility was supposed to bring hundreds upon hundreds of jobs to the area when it was completed in...2012. Doh! It took chutzpah, but the same cast of characters touting this latest "public/private partnership" were spreading the exact same fairy dust back then. Because, you know, the actual design of the building wasn't completed until earlier this year. They *knew* it was a fantasy back then, even as they rolled out the ceremonial shovels, packed the reception tents with free food, and gloried in the awesomeness of themselves.

So now Quad-C is finally under construction close to two years after it was supposed to be finished. And guess what? The "private" part of the partnership has vanished. The certification docs for the proposed foundry areas are all in the name of the state Dormitory Authority as the sole funding source.

Given all this it would be insane to be anything other than skeptical of the latest "major developments".

Oh, no, it's much worse than that. Redevelopment of the Utica Harbor area was first floated as a proposal back in 1986. The scam back then was taking advantage of the billions freed up for Superfund cleanup to turn it into a vacation paradise.

Mind you, at the time the ground would literally burst into flame if you dropped a match on it. Scrape a ditch with your heel and you could watch the coal tar ooze out of the earth to fill the hole.

Ah, this response is a classic and typical "Utica" response. They have no idea how to respond intelligently, so they just let out with the insults. A prime example of why Utica is such a dump.

Da law and Jerry move you are both miserable people. No need to argue with stupid.
We will see in two years. Then you will have something else to whine about. Oh and Jerry Mr rocket scientist. If you are from Rome and you put down Utica,you're not helping Rome. We grow as a region.

I have a serious questions for anyone who may know.

The partnership that was announced was between EDGE and CNSE(SUNY). Some of the reporting said that it is a public - private partnership.

Who is the private entity in this?

Who is paying for the devlopment of the site including the facility, the surrounding site and required wetland mitigation?

Who is the owner?

New York State: Building a Nano Empire
By ELIZABETH COOPER
Observer-Dispatch
Posted Sep 15, 2013 @ 07:05 AM
The next largest project in recent memory is the $125 million Center
for Computer Chip Commercialization at SUNYIT, which seemed huge when
it was announced, but now pales in comparison.
And while such a large project might seem overly ambitious to some,
local skeptics might find comfort in the fact that the latest
initiative is not an oddity standing alone in a barren landscape.
It’s part of a comprehensive strategy that’s already underway to make
the state into a center for computer technology research, development
and manufacturing.
And so far, the plan seems to be working, experts and industry insiders
said.
“There is no question about whether New York is becoming the center of
the industry,” said Peter Singer, editor in chief of Solid State
Technology magazine, which keeps a close eye on nanotechnology.“To me,
it is very believable that this could happen.”
For at least a decade, major nanotechnology players have been attracted
by the intellectual center SUNY’s College of Nanoscale Science and
Engineering has created in Albany. And now, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 2011
announcement of a $4.8 billion partnership with private companies —
including Intel, Samsung, TSMC, IBM and Global Foundries — to develop
the next generation of computer chip manufacturing is gaining traction.
“The biggest companies are behind it,” Singer said.“They really
believe it will give them the competitive edge that will make it
unbeatable, and they have the wherewithal to make it happen.”
Unique partnership
Much of that research and development is going on at the NanoCollege’s
Albany headquarters.
Meanwhile, spinoff technology centers operated in partnership with the
school have been established in some of the state’s aging manufacturing
cities.
Rochester and Buffalo each have a piece of the action. But Utica now is
the most ambitious and has the biggest commitment of funding.
The Rochester area is home to a $200 million center for excellence for
the fabrication and packaging of micro-electronics and also, a $100
million solar technology facility.
Buffalo soon will be home to a $250 million state-of-the-art facility
for pharmaceutical research, development and testing.
Much of the capital for those endeavors will come from the private
sector, just like the Utica initiatives.
Ian Steff, vice president for global policy and technology partnerships
at the Washington D.C.-based Semiconductor Industry Association, said
the United States has pioneered such public-private sector
partnerships, some involving multiple companies, and it’s paying off.

I do t think these company leaders locating here is just feel good.

M+W Americas, a world leader in nanotechnology facility construction,
has established its U.S. headquarters in the Albany area.

“We moved from Dallas, Texas, to New York because of the vision we see
for New York continuing to develop this nanotech cluster,” said company
President and CEO Rick Whitney.

His company is based in Germany, and its U.S. operations have a $1
billion annual budget. He currently has a 100-person workforce in New
York, he said.

Cleveland Polymer Technologies makes the castings used to prevent
vibrations from interfering with the delicate work of making computer
chips.

The company moved to the Albany area five years ago, after learning
that one of its major customers, a British company, had moved there.

“I looked around and saw that our customers from all around the world
were here,” said company President Panos Angelopoulos.“We came here
and we see our business growing.”

Assuming the Marcy chip fabrication plants become a reality, he said he
may well open an offshoot in the Mohawk Valley.
