The City of Worcester is firmly committed to the development and support of commerce and industry. The Site Search Assistance Program, administered by the Division of Business & Community Development, is designed to identify available land and building space in coordination with local real estate professionals and property owners. The program coordinates development efforts with the knowledge and resources of the commercial real estate community to meet the real estate needs of companies, small businesses and developers, helping them locate, stay and grow within the City.
This coordination allows the Division of Business & Community Development to take a proactive approach in retaining and expanding existing businesses and attracting new businesses to Worcester. This tool also helps in identifying and understanding the unique requirements of new businesses, including cost, geography, square footage, floor plans, ceiling heights, parking, rail or highway access, loading docks, utility capacity, etc.
Using Location Worcester, our in-house tools and local real estate experts, we can help you secure the most appropriate property. Whether you are a start-up or an established business, the Division of Business & Community Development looks forward to working with you to facilitate new investments within the City.
