Whether you’re looking to launch or grow your business, Yonkers is the smart location. Strategically located just north of Manhattan, Yonkers offers all the perks of New York City, but at a fraction of the cost. Home to nearly 200,000 people in a county of 1 million, Yonkers is the third-largest city in New York and the largest in Westchester County. It is connected by an extensive and convenient transportation system, with easy access to 10 MetroNorth stations, five major highways and widespread bus service in and around the city – making it easy to move goods, customers and employees alike.
Yonkers also offers a variety of properties to fit a variety of needs. From luxury commercial and state-of-the-art medical to hip industrial and affordable office spaces, Yonkers has it – and so much more. Need space for warehousing, manufacturing or even a showroom? Yonkers has repurposed factory buildings along the Hudson River and Nepperhan Valley corridor that would be ideal. Looking to build residential properties? Yonkers has numerous locations that are prime for development. Yonkers also has one of the region’s largest technology and office campuses – iPark Hudson – situated right in the heart of the Yonkers Waterfront District, across from the Yonkers Train Station. No matter what the business, Yonkers is open for business.
Best of all, whether your business is large or small, you’ll be welcomed by a City Government that encourages economic development and promotes a positive business climate for all. Mayor Mike Spano and the Yonkers IDA have developed a team approach to new business development that eliminates costly delays, while simultaneously offering tax incentives and other financial assistance to make your move a reality.
