DEADLINE PASSED RFP: City of Rome Turney Site Redevelopment

The City of Rome is proud to welcome potential development proposals at the former Rome Turney Radiator site on Canal Street. This is a unique opportunity for development along one of Rome’s entrance corridors leading to the resurgent center city area known as Downtown Rome. 

The site located in a Brownfield Opportunity Area, not only offers NYS Brownfield tax credits, but coupled with a NYS RESTORE grant and National Grid funds, provides a potential developer with the seed money necessary to assist a substantial redevelopment project. 

The City of Rome is host to the area’s largest Business and Technology Park at the former Griffiss Air Force Base, hosts of 1 of only 6 FAA certified drone test facilities in the United States which puts Rome at the forefront of new technology and initiatives related to the next generation drones, and is in close proximity to the SUNY POLY campus where site preparations are ongoing to advance a chip fabricator.
