Penn’s Northeast Updates Business Park Maps


Poconos, PA – The landscape in the region’s business parks is constantly changing. Developers continue to construct speculative buildings and lots that were once vacant land now house industrial and office buildings. These changes are relevant to site selectors, real estate brokers and developers when striving to recruit companies to the region and ensuring that this information is available is a key role Penn’s Northeast plays.

In order to make certain that prospects have the information they need at their fingertips, Penn’s Northeast recently updated a map portfolio of 28 of the region’s business and industrial parks. These maps are available in both print and electronic format. The complete map portfolio is a unified regional presentation of the numerous options and opportunities available in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe and Wayne counties.

Since 2004, Penn’s Northeast has annually published maps of a significant representation of the region’s business parks and bound them as a handy portfolio reference guide to northeast Pennsylvania. In an effort to be a little “greener”, this year’s maps were distributed in electronic format only. Bound hard copies are available upon request.

The maps are distributed to targeted site selectors, real estate brokers, developers and the Governor’s Action Team.

“Businesses, both large and small, are recognizing that northeast Pennsylvania provides the perfect setting for companies providing a skilled workforce, a prime east coast location and a cost of doing business that is highly competitive with neighboring states, said Penn’s Northeast President Penny Cannella. “There has been tremendous interest in northeast Pennsylvania during the last few years and it will continue into 2012 and beyond.”

The business park map portfolio is just one of the tools Penn’s Northeast uses to market the region. An online database of available sites and buildings can also be accessed on the Penn’s Northeast website.

Penn’s Northeast is a regional economic development marketing organization that serves Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe and Wayne counties. Its mission is to facilitate investment of capital and the creation and retention of quality jobs in northeastern Pennsylvania.
