WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino visited last week with a group of nearly 30 real estate brokers from Jones Lang LaSalle in New York City to talk about what Westchester has to offer businesses and individuals, according to an announcement.
Noting Westchester’s key strengths, talent, accessibility and quality of life, Astorino told the assembled brokers that they should be aware of these strengths when working with and for their client base when making decisions on where to locate or relocate their businesses.
Astorino emphasized the county's "talented and skilled workforce employers are looking for, as well as the balanced lifestyle employees are looking for, combined with commercial real estate space that is twice the space at half the cost," calling it "a great option" for brokers whose clients are threatening to leave the city and New York state.
“We’re proud of the fact that Westchester is the most highly educated county in America,” said Astorino. “Between our skilled workforce, amazing quality of life and affordable office space, Westchester is the smart choice for business in the 21st century.”Director of Economic Development Bill Mooney joined Astorino in noting ways the county could assist businesses in staying or relocating to Westchester, including financial incentives available through the county’s Industrial Development Agency.
