With the purchase of 12 parcels of land (from 9 different property owners) on the former Shawmut Railroad site and a successful application for federal assistance, the City of Hornell IDA successfully converted a former brownfield into a thriving business park. The Shawmut Industrial Park houses the expanded Alstom motor shop and includes a new 40,000-square-foot facility leased to a ceramic tile company, all translating to jobs and economic benefits for the area. There is a total of 140,000 square feet of new construction on site and about 25 acres remaining for development.
