IBM Facility in Somers Sells for Nearly $32 Million

The more than 700-acre IBM office complex on Route 100 Credits: CBRE

SOMERS, N.Y. – The 723-acre IBM office facility at 294 Route 100 has been sold for nearly $32 million, according to the town assessor’s office.

According to a deed agreement, the property was sold for $31,750,000 on Sept. 29, to 294 Route 100 LLC. It is not clear who owns the company.

Supervisor Rick Morrissey said he does not know who the new owner is, either, but said it appears to be good news for Somers.

"It's a new taxpayer," he said.

In May, The Somers Record reported that IBM would close its Somers headquarters. IBM, Somers’ biggest taxpayer, contributed more than $5 million annually to the town, county and school district in property taxes.

Despite losing IBM and PepsiCo, the third biggest taxpayer, in the past two years, Morrissey said Somers is in good shape. Those buildings, he said, will hopefully be repopulated soon. The town also has several new developments currently in the planning phase.

The facility includes more than a million square feet of office space on a hilltop off Route 100, between routes 116 and 138. Designed by I.M. Pei, four iconic five-story office buildings are topped by 50-foot glass-pyramid skylights, visible from Route 684. A fifth building, four stories high, houses central services.

She had file envy

Who says paperwork is not sexy?! This week, I was so impressed (and even charmed) by the paperwork and systems of two different women. I was even a little envious. In the first case, my client Lois in Ardsley decided that it was time to get her paperwork in order. After six years of shifting paperwork, a dysfunctional home office, an international move and the purchase of a new home, she had HAD ...

The Books That Got Me Through the Storm

It is almost unfathomable to me that we are out of power again. Weren’t we just recovering from the back-to-back nor’easters of March? Yikes! And while I am still out of power, I consider myself and my family to be fortunate; just a few houses from mine, and all over Westchester and Putnam counties, there are trees and wires down on roads, on cars, on homes and businesses. Indeed, we ...

Thrifting From the Couch

Now that I am confident that we have turned the corner on winter and the warm weather is here to stay, it is time to commit to that timeless ritual: change of season, change your closet. I actually like it, that chance to get reacquainted with my favorites and to question once again why some things were actually purchased in the first place. I am totally guilty of falling into that trap of loving ...
