Journal News Announces Plans to Move to 1133 Westchester Avenue
According to Janet Hasson, pubisher of the Journal News Media Group, plans are underway for Westchester’s daily newspaper to move from Gannett Drive, where ...
…it has been located since 1973, to 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains.
“Our new office space signals the beginning of a new era…[now that we have] transformed into a media company that provides news and content in print, online and mobile platforms,” she said in a statement issued on April 11th.
The announcement was greeted with excitement when Journal News employees learned of the amenities at 1133 – day-care services, a hair salon, fitness center, and a food court. The real estate community was happy as well. “This helps reduce the amount of vacant inventory in the county,” noted Marissa Brett, executive director of economic development at the Westchester County Association, especially since the outdated buildings on Gannett Drive will be demolished, rebuilt and occupied by new tenants. “It’s all in line with our Blueprint for Westchester,” she added.
