A Renewal for IBM Campuses Once Home to Punch Cards and Circuit Boards

When Big Blue left upstate New York, economic pain ensued. But the large complexes left behind are ideally suited for large-scale production and shipping, local officials say.

ENDICOTT, N.Y. The sidewalks along Washington Avenue in Endicott, N.Y., are empty enough that bicycles cruise their length with smooth sailing. But 40 years ago, when an IBM plant hummed with thousands of employees, the cyclists might have picked a different route.

밆uring lunch hour, you couldn뭪 see down the street because there were so many people, said Mary Morley, the owner of Angeline뭩 Flowers, one of the few storefronts without a 밼or rent sign. 밒t used to be quite the place.

Wistfully recalling times gone by has been a pastime in the Southern Tier and Hudson Valley areas of New York State since IBM began slashing operations and shuttering factories in the 1980s. Indeed, the entire region was once sort of an extended company town for the tech giant, which started there and spurred much of its housing and retail growth. When Big Blue left, economic pain ensued.

But the large campuses that remain hold keys to an economic rebound, in places like East Fishkill, Ulster and Endicott, say business leaders working to reinvent them.



Lined with warehouses, well served by utilities and near major highways, the campuses are ideally suited for tenants involved in large-scale production and shipping, a segment of the industrial market that has grown during the pandemic, they say.

And the pandemic-related relocation of New Yorkers to points north has put a possible new work force within reach, adding momentum to redevelopment efforts.

밅orporations shouldn뭪 be let off the hook so easily for just fading away. Taxpayers paid for all their roads, said Lynne Ward, an executive vice president at National Resources, a developer based in Connecticut that buys empty industrial parks across the country. 밄ut some great infrastructure has been left behind.

In East Fishkill, the Dutchess County town where IBM once had more than 600 acres along Interstate 84, the good bones seem particularly attractive to food-related businesses. Since National Resources bought a 300-acre plot in 2017 and renamed it iPark 84, space has been leased to companies that make cookies, cocktail syrups and crepes.

Joining them this fall in a 3,000-square-foot berth will be Ronnybrook Farm Dairy, a milk provider based nearby. (IBM is also an iPark tenant, and Global Foundries, the semiconductor manufacturer that purchased most of IBM뭩 chipmaking assets in 2014, owns a 160-acre piece.)



To create a buzzy scene, National Resources is constructing a barnlike wing off one of its manufacturing buildings so all the food items produced there can be offered to the public in a grocery setting, Ms. Ward said.


The complex, which cost $300 million to purchase and redevelop, is 90 percent leased, she said. Housing and hotels are also being considered for the site, she added.
