HANOVER - Hundreds of jobs could be coming to the area.
Seneca Nation of Indians leaders, acting on a retail feasibility study completed this summer, are considering the next phase of plans that could lead to a 400,000-square-foot outlet mall on a 108-acre site just off Exit 58 of the state Thruway. The parcel of land is located just off the Nation's territory.
If the project continues forward, it is expected to create an estimated 250 construction jobs and 750 full- and part-time jobs when fully built.
A “bean field” in the town of Hanover, the site of a proposed 400,000-square-foot outlet mall just off Exit 58 of the state Thruway, is pictured.
