EAST HUNTINGTON, PA-Sony’s closure of its 2.8-million-square-foot television-making facility here could attract smaller tenants to fill up the vacant space, according to an article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The closure, announced earlier this week as part of Sony’s global cutbacks, will take place in March and lead to 560 layoffs.

The Tribune-Review article quotes a spokesman for Gov. Ed Rendell, saying that the government could use tax breaks to attract companies to the site. Others quoted speculated that the plant could be broken in 200,000-square-foot sections to accommodate smaller tenants, used as warehouse space for a big-box retailer like Wal-Mart or become a facility for renewable-energy firms.
