A wealth of choices is offered in the Dutchess County Building Inventory, which is maintained and continually updated by the Economic Development Corporation. The current listing contains data sheets with specific information such as location, acreage, existing zoning, past use, square footage, condition, ceiling height, utilities, parking, access to roads and airport, and sale/lease price.
The Economic Development Corporation also maintains a listing of undeveloped sites. These site fact sheets describe properties ranging from 5 to 500 acres. Many of these sites have access to central utilities, and several have New York State Economic Development Zone status or pre-approved development plans. All are zoned for industrial or business uses.
Because of its determination to attract job-creating businesses to the area and the generous supply of vacant land zoned for industrial and commercial uses, Dutchess County can surely accommodate the largest industrial, commercial, or office needs.

The premier high technology location in the northeast now available for new businesses is the Hudson Valley Research Park. Owned and managed by IBM in the center of their expansive East Fishkill campus, the HVRP has every economic advantage from high technology services to on-site security. The facility is located on I-84, just 18 miles east of the New York State Thruway and only 90 minutes north of New York City. Access to domestic and international markets is easily available from nearby Stewart International Airport in Newburgh or JFK and LaGuardia Airports to the south.
The Hudson Valley Research Park has 1.3 million total square feet, including:
Clean room space
Research or laboratory space
Raised floor data center areas
Space can be subdivided into small or large units and a wide range of specialized services are available on-site, such as processed water supplies, high capacity electrical units, compressed air, and laboratory exhaust and waste systems.
New businesses of all sizes now have the opportunity to take advantage of IBM's millions of dollars in investment in sophisticated systems and highly trained personnel on the site to short-cut the development process. Startups that can typically take years in other areas can be realized in only months. The Hudson Valley Research Park offers the finest quality high technology space, great flexibility in terms of leasing arrangements and expansion options, and additional financial incentives such as New York State Economic Development Zone designation and foreign trade zone capabilities.
