Governor Cuomo Announces Expansion Of Syracuse Tech Garden and Completion Of First-In-The-Nation 50-Mile Drone Corridor Between Syracuse And Rome
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recently announced that the home of the innovative GENIUS NY UAS competition, the Tech Garden in Downtown Syracuse, will undergo a major expansion project to include the addition of two floors to the existing facility. The increased visibility and street-scape will serve as the anchor of the Syracuse's City Center Innovation Hub, a core component of the Syracuse Surge strategy, and will serve as the gateway to the "Innovation Alley" on Warren Street in Syracuse. Empire State Development is assisting the expansion project with up to $12.5 million made available through the regionally designed CNY Rising Upstate Revitalization Initiative plan.
The mission of CenterState CEO’s The Tech Garden is to stimulate high-tech entrepreneurship, foster the development of emerging growth companies, and support technology commercialization throughout the region.
