The Tech Garden expansion is underway! The planned $32 Million project will add 46,000 square feet to the facility, including 2 more floors. The revitalization of downtown is a top priority of the Central New York Regional Economic Development Council, and this expansion is part of the plan to make Upstate New York the next major hub for innovative, high-tech, 21st century businesses. The building is located directly across from one of JF Real Estate’s properties, 224 Harrison Street. Our prediction is that this project will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the demand for office space in 224 Harrison, especially in the buildings coworking space, ShareCuse.

Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon said, “The project is a game-changer. The transformational expansion of The Tech Garden space will serve as a visible reminder of the momentum underway not only in Central New York, but in downtown Syracuse proper. This multi-million-dollar investment will help this already successful incubator to provide more opportunity and an even greater user experience for forward-thinking entrepreneurs who are looking to grow their business in the region. I want to thank the Governor, as well as all of our other partners, for helping us with our continued commitment to revitalizing and enhancing the downtown experience for workers and residents alike.”

Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh said, “The Tech Garden is the anchor to the Center City Innovation Hub, an important component to the Syracuse Surge, our strategy for inclusive growth in the New Economy. With this expansion, Syracuse will grow as a greater destination for tech startups in Upstate New York. The renaissance of downtown Syracuse will also continue to flourish, furthering the City’s commitment to be a growing city that embraces diversity and creates opportunity for all. I am grateful to Governor Hochul, Empire State Development and CenterState CEO for their commitment to Syracuse.”
