Upstate will move its Information Management Technology in late July and Hospital Finance in October.

It’s become a really compelling values property for people that are trying to retain top talent."
Over the past several weeks companies like Arcadis, Aspen Dental, Terakeet and TCGPlayer will retain or add nearly 2,000 jobs in Downtown Syracuse.
"Syracuse is our brand, Downtown is the face of that brand and the better the city looks the better we're going to be to market our entire region." Simpson says.
While some new construction has happened in the past few years Simpson predicts we’ll see quite a bit more in the next few years Downtown.
