Riverview Business Park Launches New Web Site

Site details vast potential of Volney facility

    Riverview Business Park, in cooperation with Operation Oswego County, has launched it new Web site,, to promote its business development opportunities world wide, it was announced by Eric Will II, co-owner.

    “In addition to having Northeast Biofuels—the largest ethanol plant in the Northeast—as our neighbor, our new Web site concisely shows all the attractive assets and economic benefits that Riverview offers,” he said.

    Located in an Empire Zone with inherent tax benefits, Riverview hosts a 695,000 square-foot warehouse and a 100,000 square-foot annex located on 329 total acres with the convenience of truck, rail, water and air access right here, Will noted.

    “Among our utility assets are a 115 kilovolt substation, a high pressure 300 pounds per square inch natural gas line, 24-inch water service, and a waste treatment plant with a capacity for up to 10 million gallons per day,” he said.

    The site also features a page on logistics that shows Riverview’s close proximity with easy connections to major cities in Canada and the Northeast, Will said.

    “It’s bordered by interstate highway, serviced by CSX rail, and within 20 miles of an international airport. Riccelli Trucking, a large regional trucking firm, has a shipping and receiving terminal located right next door, he added.

    “In addition, the Oswego River borders the park, which is only 11 miles from the Port of Oswego, the first Great Lakes port off the Atlantic with access to the St. Lawrence Seaway,” he said.

    One of the most provocative sections of the site, Will said, is the “Green Uses” page.

    A recent study of the park’s assets by O’Brien & Gere engineers in Syracuse led to a variety of potential uses for the waste water treatment plant, powerhouse and warehouse that focused on renewable, sustainable, eco-industrial processes. Among the possible adaptations were “Green” power conversion, geothermal energy, solar panels, and a wind farm. The entire study, which features property history, development scenarios and color diagrams, is available for download on that page.

    “The site was designed and built by Chirello Advertising, a local marketing/public relations firm in Fulton, which also developed our graphic identity that is now prominently featured in all of our promotional efforts,” he said.

    For more information, Will can be reached at 315.598.0207 ext. 222 or at
