In a news release, Bob Fontana, CEO of Aspen Dental Management stated, “We’re excited about the possibility of relocating our Practice Support Center from East Syracuse to downtown Syracuse, a move that will not only keep our talented team of nearly 600 people right here in Central New York, but also allow us to be a part of the downtown revitalization effort.”

Salina St in Syracuse, NY.  Aspen intends to lease 170,000 square feet of space and add an additional 400 jobs by 2020.  Pending the finalization of terms with the landlord and other stakeholders, construction is anticipated to begin this summer with a move in date some time in late 2017.
