As cannabis continues to cultivate space in New York, a massive facility is set to break ground in the Hudson Valley. Cresco Labs will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Ulster County complex on Thursday. The event will draw a horde of politicians, including some who once celebrated law enforcement crackdowns on cannabis operations.
Chicago-based Cresco is redeveloping a former Schrade knife factory at 11 Aluminum Drive in Ellenville. The complex will include space for the cultivation, processing, packaging, and distribution of cannabis.
The first stage of the development involves building renovations, which will employ 75 full-time workers. The second will erect a new building spanning 380,000 square feet and requiring 375 full-time construction workers.
