Brooklyn, Chelsea, Hoboken and other happening hoods are on fire right now (and have been for years), however, Yonkers is giving them a run for their money. New York’s fourth largest city has come a long way in recent years and now it’s offering companies great ways to do business — at a quarter of the price that these hot metropolitan areas cost.
Where else can you get 10,000, 20,000 or potentially 1 million square feet of office space with water front views at a fraction of New York’s soaring real estate price tags?
Yonkers. New York’s other borough.
The buildings available in Westchester County’s hippest town give you more than just space; they come with history, flavor and grand architecture — high ceilings, vast windows and original hard wood floors. Some locations, notably 86 Main Street, have wide open space and waterfront views that include the majestic backdrop of the Palisades. A bonus is that it’s just a short walk to the newly opened Yonkers Brewery and all of its crafty splendors.
Catch a glimpse of this incredible layout in this GenerationYonkers program, Space Invaders, which provides a virtual first-hand look into the building:

A few blocks away are the old Alexander Smith Carpet Mills (500 Nepperhan Ave.), buildings that are practically calling out to artists. It has up to 1 million sq. feet that are ready to be occupied by artists and the creative class. This loft space is ideal for gallery space as it comes with incredibly high 15 foot ceilings and windows that are hard to find this side of the 21st Century.
If you’re thinking of moving your company, look no further than Yonkers, the City of Gracious Living. It’s just 30 minutes from New York City at a pittance of what you’re going to pay in other hoods. How can any cost-conscious business owner pass up on such great offers that Yonkers has?
Brooklyn, Chelsea and Hoboken were much like Yonkers 20 and even 30 years ago. C’mon, be ahead of the curve. Be part of it.
