The recent announcement that ground has been broken for the long-anticipated $125 million Computer Chip Commercialization Center at SUNYIT can’t help but stir some excitement in a community too accustomed to lofty dreams and broken promises.

Now the big question is this: Will we be ready?

We’d better be. The project, known as the Quad C, is expected to be completed by the end of 2014. That doesn’t really leave much time to get things done. And it’ll take the whole community to clear the way.

The entire nanotech effort has been met with profound skepticism, justified perhaps, by a string of broken promises by state officials, beginning with the announcement in 2009 that a $45 million complex would be built here, bringing 450 jobs by 2013. Gov. Andrew Cuomo upped the ante in 2011, adding another $45 million to the package and doubling the job expectations. Still nothing.

But this time there are shovels in the ground. Big shovels. The Quad C investment has grown to $125 million and is expected to be completed by the end of next year. Job numbers are unknown, but they could nudge the 1,000 mark, considering that the $90 million project projected 900.

Meanwhile, Alain Kaloyeros, senior vice president and CEO of Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Technology, which is partnering with SUNYIT in this project, said the annual operating budget is expected to exceed $500 million. That exceeds the $371 million Oneida County budget by millions.

Building such a complex is more than bricks and mortar. Hundreds of well-paying jobs pouring into the community — salaries will average around $80,000 or $90,000, officials say — will require a wide array of services, not the least of which is housing. That could include everything from condominiums to downtown lofts, some of which have been created or are in planning stages, but still far short of what could be needed.

Such housing will create a need for services — convenient grocery stores and pharmacies, which are currently lacking downtown. Mayor Palmieri has been vigilant in securing city development, but he needs to work on some of the basics. People living downtown shouldn’t have to get in their car to buy a loaf of bread or a bottle of aspirin. Adding such amenities now could serve as a draw for people searching for a place to live. If downtown is convenient, they’re more likely to settle there.

Add to the Computer Chip Commercialization Center a nanochip plant and hundreds more jobs. Mohawk Valley EDGE is marketing a parcel of land near SUNYIT for chip manufacturing, and the Quad C complex and pool of workers from adjacent SUNYIT won’t hurt the region’s chances of landing one.

Employees relocating to the region will locate in the best school districts. This is a proven fact. Nobody will be relocating to the cities of Utica and Rome.

Nobody will be moving to Utica. Nh and Marcy and maybe Westmorelands school enrollment will skyrocket and there housing market available for sale will shrink. Homes in those towns will be priced higher when the market reflects its a buyers market. People will be in bidding wars over nicer decent available homes.

If you have a home in Utica there will be no change. Who in there right mind wants to buy a house and raise a family in that hole?

It will be a good time to sell in the suburbs if that's your perogitive. It will also reinhance the type of people moving into the suburbs. Good hard working affluent people with means and a paycheck. Not some of this Utica rif raf that's been moving out further and further from the city.

Why do you people think Utica is some kind of spectacular gem in the rough? You could give housing away down there and most sane people will tell you to go fly a kite on a rainy day with that baloney. The city is and has been mismanaged for decades. Public safety budgeting is way out of wack with the population. There are no other citites in this state paying for public saftey at the level you are. The roads and infrastructure hasn't been kept up and is now beyond normal scheduled maintenance. It's a friggin mess down there. How shameful. Shameful indeed.

I live in Utica and love it here. I live in an older home with a lot of personality. My kids go to Utica schools and I could not be happier.

You live in Utica because its easier to find section 8 housing there, hence the older house as well. Your kids goto Utica schools cause you don't care enough beyond your heroin habit to send them somewhere better. Youre so happy cause you're high all day and living the good life off the rest of us. Scumbag.

When this finally happens, the homes in N. Utica, Deerfield,and Marcy will be able to sell at a premium price due to the short distance an employee will have to drive to be at work.

Why do you think all the Hotels are being built in N. Utica?

Why do you think the Governor is offering NO TAXES for any business to be built within 5 miles of Suny?

Why do you think the Governonr has offered the same No Taxes package to employees working there?

Use your brains everyone - NYS is laying the ground work to bring NANO in here.

The only concern I have - where are these "new" employees going to come from? The majority of the available work force currently in Utica are HS drop outs, welfare inborn with IQs of less than 80, and a lack of a solid work history/education.

Sorry to burst your bubble but I am not on section 8 nor do I take any drugs. However,what is worse than both of those is your poor spirt and your self righteousness. You suck.

When WHAT finally happens? This is nothing at all. There is no client here this is total BS even the OD bought it: It's a $125 million diollar "school" and is redundant to facilites at Albany already.

Meanwhile the biggest semicionductor in the world turned utica down 2 months ago and those idiots i the news didn't ever even know it until it was too late.

Good luck with those 1000s of jobs at that imaginary employer you all fell for.

What's this make 3 "no sales" so far?

And HOW much money have you welfare economy people allowed to line pockets at EDGE and all the rest in the last 15 years since Hillary Clinton and Destito first floated that whole retarded idea anyway? NY will never attract and keep any "hi tech" unless, as usual, they keep the corporate welfare gushing. You're all fucked you just don't know it yet.

What part of "NEW YORK IS THE SINGLE MOST EXPENSIVE STATE TO DO BUSINESS IN" don't you understand? See ya when the tears start falling!
