New City, N.Y. (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
It is no secret that Governor Andrew Cuomo is full steam ahead on breaking ground on a new Tappan Zee Bridge. In August of 2012, the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council voted unanimously to approve a $5.4 billion plan to build a new Tappan Zee Bridge.
To prepare for the impending influx of activity associated with this project, Rand Commercial Services has launched TappanZeeBridgeInfo.com, a website created as a resource for people and businesses associated with the new Tappan Zee Bridge Project.
Designed to ease transportation and traffic related problems, supporters of Gov. Cuomo’s plan believe that a new Tappan Zee Bridge project will have additional benefits for Rockland and Westchester Counties, including the creation of over 45,000 new jobs and new businesses.
“It is pretty clear that when we build it, they will come. Our Governor is making great strides towards getting the Tappan Zee Bridge project started and business is already starting to pick up,” said Paul Adler, VP of Rand Commercial Services and chairman of Rand Realty’s Tappan Zee Bridge Task Force. “The construction of a new bridge means new jobs. Those companies and workers need places to conduct business and places to live.” Adler continued. “Companies need office space, warehouse space to store their supplies, workshops for fabrication and staging areas; and that’s just the beginning. All those workers will need products and services outside of work, like food, clothing, healthcare and entertainment. Business creates more business.”
TappanZeeBridgeInfo.com was designed to provide a single location for information about the project as well as a resource guide to help visitors locate temporary housing, places of business and commercial real estate opportunities.
Since launching TappanZeeBridgeInfo.com, the internet team at Rand Commercial Services has seen a steady increase of web traffic to site. Adler adds, “With all the activity surrounding the bridge project, I would not be surprised if traffic to the website increases exponentially over the next six months. It is entirely possible that we may eventually have a hard time keeping up with demand for commercial property in this area.”
