Economic Incentives

Access to Incentives

Salmar Properties will work with Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation (SBIDC) to help potential tenants access various programs and incentives designed to encourage industrial development and/or benefit light manufacturing and industrial tenants. These programs include, but are not limited to:

NYC Relocation and Employment Assistance Program (REAP)
A 12-year tax credit (refundable in the first 5 years) of $3,000 per job per year for each job relocated to Brooklyn. [1]

Industrial Business Zone Relocation Credit (IBZ)
The Industrial Business Zone (IBZ) Relocation Tax Credit is a one-time tax credit of $1,000 per relocated employee available to industrial and manufacturing firms relocating to one of the City’s sixteen IBZs from outside of an IBZ. Firms relocating within an IBZ are also eligible.

Low Cost Electricity
The City’s Energy Cost Savings Program (ECSP) provides a discount of as much as 45% on the distribution portion of electric costs. [2]

Additional Energy Savings
From Con Edison’s Business Incentive Rate (BIR) Program. [3]

Industrial & Commercial Abatement Program (ICAP)
This program provides abatements for property taxes for periods of up to 25 years. To be eligible, industrial and commercial buildings must be built, modernized, expanded, or otherwise physically improved. ICAP replaced the Industrial Commercial Exemption Program (ICIP) which ended in 2008. Previously approved ICIP benefits were not affected.

PILOT (Payment In Lieu of Taxes)
This project was granted a PILOT from New York City. As part of our tenant attraction package, we can offer/negotiate a significantly reduced real estate tax liability package.
