The Business Hub Now Open at Picotte Companies Office Building

International Company Unveils New North American Headquarters and Co-Working Space at Picotte’s Premiere Downtown Albany Building

ALBANY, NY – Picotte Companies, the capital region’s premier provider of commercial real estate, today announced that Migrate Business Services has officially opened The Business Hub, a shared workspace and innovative business ecosystem located within Picotte Companies 111 Washington Avenue office building.

In addition to the Business Hub, Migrate Business Service’s North American corporate headquarters has relocated to Picotte’s historic downtown Albany building.

Picotte Companies partnership with Migrate Business Services, a global business support platform, was announced in July of 2020.

“Picotte is committed to helping businesses of the capital region succeed by providing our partners with safe and sanitary, high quality commercial real estate options,” said Nancy Carey Cassidy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Picotte Companies. “We are proud to welcome The Business Hub to downtown Albany in our landmark Capitol Hill building. Migrate is providing a stand-out, innovative space for co-working, and we’re looking forward to a continued partnership.”

The Business Hub offers flexible membership options, with plans ranging from open desks to fully serviced offices. The Business Hub acts as a business concierge, providing access to deals, services, and new opportunities in local markets and around the world. The Business Hub allows for safe, socially distanced workspaces, and 111 Washington, like all Picotte commercial real estate properties, has implemented safety features such as enhanced cleaning, self-sanitizing door handles, and more. 

For those interested in touring the space, either in-person or virtually, please call (518) 631-2347.

“The Business Hub is more than just a co-working space,” said Phil Reedy, general manager at Migrate. “It’s a community coming together to help businesses succeed and thrive in today’s economy. Picotte’s Washington Avenue building is a natural fit for the Business Hub. This prime location will connect our clients to new opportunities, resources, and all that Albany has to offer.”

“Downtown continues to attract new businesses, and it is great to see an organization like Migrate Business Services making such a strong commitment to the City of Albany. The company is not only opening its latest venture, it also chose to be a member of the community by making Albany its corporate home base,” said Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. “I’d also like to commend Picotte Companies for investing in downtown Albany and for bringing innovative businesses like Migrate and its headquarters here.”

“Albany County is a great place to do business, and we look forward to seeing the Business Hub provide a safe, collaborative space for entrepreneurs, members of the region’s burgeoning creative economy, and business owners to call home here in the Capital District. Congratulations to Migrate and to Picotte Companies, who has long been an important local partner and a staple in commercial real estate throughout the county,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy.

Picotte’s 111 Washington Avenue office building, situated less than a block from the State Capitol and Empire State Plaza, is currently home to law firms, trade associations and government affairs specialists.

 “The Business Hub will be a great addition to 111 Washington Ave. The shared workspace model is becoming the new trend which will benefit both the landlord and businesses seeking smaller workspaces. After a challenging year for all employers it’s refreshing to see office space being filled and not vacated,” said Heather Briccetti, President and CEO of The Business Council of New York State.

Mark Eagan, President and CEO of the Capital Region Chamber, said, “Getting our economy back on track is a collective effort, and it requires providing access and opportunities for local businesses. Picotte Companies partnership with The Business Hub not only brings an international headquarters to the Capital Region, but it provides the needed space and resources for small businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive and increase their reach. Congratulations to both Migrate and Picotte on the grand opening of this important space in Albany.”

The Business Hub is the ideal environment for professionals and businesses of all types. The office space at 111 Washington and virtual membership options provide access to a variety of business services and growth opportunities, optimized for busy executives.

New York State Senator Neil Breslin said, “I am glad to see Migrate Business Services open the doors to their new Business Hub and bring their headquarters to Albany, in partnership with Picotte Companies. Congratulations on growing our downtown and contributing to the region’s vibrant business community.”
