PLATTSBURGH – TDC (The Development Corporation) Premier Industrial Parks, an integral part of Plattsburgh’s business and economic development community for 61 years, continues to cement its brand in the North Country region with the construction of its 25th property.

To commemorate the construction of “Building #25,” TDC held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday morning at the site of the future building on Tom Miller Road.

60,000 SQUARE FEET

Expected to be completed in April 2023, the multi-tenant building will be 60,000 square feet upon completion. It will feature two 30,000 square foot suites consisting of two dock level doors, a driveway door and 1,000 square feet of office or support space.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, TDC has bet on the North Country,” said David F. Champagne, III, President and CEO of TDC.

“In 2019, TDC broke ground on a 60,000 square foot industrial facility. Today’s announcement of a second 60,000 square foot industrial facility demonstrates not only the strength of TDC, but also the belief of all our partners that the future is strong in Plattsburgh.”

BRING OPPORTUNITIES

Several local leaders, partners and TDC representatives attended the groundbreaking ceremony to show their support for the shovel-ready project.

Plattsburgh City Superintendent Michael Cashman said TDC’s new building is part of an exciting chapter in the city.

“We are very proud that TDC has its home in the city of Plattsburgh,” said Cashman at the groundbreaking ceremony.

“They are the first industrial park to offer so many opportunities for jobs that extend beyond the city of Plattsburgh and throughout the region.”

Rep. D. Billy Jones’ (D-Chateaugay Lake) Chief of Staff, Scott Matthews, read a statement on Jones’ behalf at the groundbreaking ceremony.

“I disagree with you, but would like to express my unwavering support for TDC and the entire team there in promoting the continued economic development of the region. This investment will expand the Banker Road Industrial Park and continue to grow Plattsburgh and the surrounding area,” said Matthews.

“If there’s ever anything he (Jones) can do, or if the office can ever do anything, you can always reach out to us. He’s happy to help and happy to see the shovel-ready project moving forward.”

County of Clinton Industrial Development Agency (IDA) Executive Director Molly Ryan said she was amazed by TDC’s “unwavering commitment to building and advancing this community.”

“We just have an incredible opportunity ahead of us,” Ryan said.

“I want people to know that something is happening here. It’s not necessarily like we’re an hour from Montreal or how many hours from New York City – there’s so much happening here in the Plattsburgh (and) Clinton County area and I want people to come here.”

‘FAST ROUTINE’

North Country Chamber of Commerce President Garry Douglas, who also attended the event, said the work TDC is doing in the North Country should not be taken for granted.

“It’s been going on for so long, it’s almost routine. This process of constant construction of new, modern industrial space conducive to the demands of today’s industry and warehousing and modern manufacturing – there are very few small areas like the Plattsburgh area that have anything going on like TDC.” said Douglas.

“What TDC keeps doing, which is building SPEC space and having the confidence and strategies to build that space and knowing it’s going to be occupied — and it always is.

“Because of things like this, today in upstate New York we will continue to be a shining light of a small community that has not lost its manufacturing base but has transitioned to tomorrow’s advanced manufacturing (base).”
