BANKER & TRADESMAN – Marlborough Mayor Arthur Vigeant, along with other economic development officials, met with commercial real estate professionals in New York City last week, attempting to woo some deep pockets to invest in the city and help create new jobs.
After a presentation on the city, a number of New York-based site selectors have committed to touring Marlborough to view its real estate inventory offerings in the near future, according to a statement from the Marlborough Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), which will coordinate the visits.
“The city of Marlborough had a successful 2012 in regards to attracting several good businesses to our community,” Vigeant said in the statement. “However, a truly sound economic development policy requires that we redouble our efforts to ensure that companies everywhere know that not only is Marlborough open for businesses, but that there is no better place for their employees to live, work and raise a family.”
Marlborough has made headlines by attracting life-sciences and biotechnology companies to the city. Boston Scientific has committed to moving its global headquarters to Marlborough, and Quest Diagnostics plans to open a regional laboratory facility in the city.
“Marlborough has a number of real estate sites and buildings that have full permits and are ready to be occupied by new businesses,” Tim Cummings, MEDC Executive Director, added in the prepared remarks.
