Real Estate In-Depth | August 2017

GOSHEN—The Commercial Investment Division of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, in cooperation with the Orange County Partnership, is holding a breakfast meeting on Thursday, Sept. 7 to discuss “The Future of Route 17.”

The event will be held at the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame at 240 Main St. and will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m.

With the impending opening of the Resorts World Catskills casino in Sullivan County next March, the potential development of the LEGOLAND New York theme park in Goshen, the expansion of The Castle entertainment property in Chester and the continued growth of the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in Central Valley, the Route 17 corridor is poised for considerable growth in the coming years.

HGAR and the Orange County Partnership have assembled an expert panel to provide updates on major project initiatives in the region as well as share their views on how best it can prepare to adequately address the anticipated influx of tourists and new business to the area.

The panel participants will include:


Maureen Halahan, President & CEO, Orange County Partnership


Nancy Proyect, President, Orange County Citizens Foundation


David Mistretta, General Manager, Woodbury Common Premium Outlets


Marc Baez, President & CEO, Sullivan County Partnership

The moderators of the roundtable will be veteran commercial broker John Lavelle of Rand Commercial Services and John Barrett, Admiral Real Estate and HGAR CID President.

“I want to thank the Orange County Partnership for their assistance in developing what I believe will be a very informative discussion on how those in the Route 17 corridor can prepare for what will be an unprecedented period of economic growth,” said HGAR Chief Executive Officer Richard Haggerty.
