Rothschild talks about SWIP, WRA and investing in Worcester

Print More

Steven Rothschild is a businessman, and a successful one at that. It’s no surprise, then, that once he crunched the numbers he decided investing in a development at the once sleepy and much-maligned South Worcester Industrial Park would be a good idea.

But there’s more to it than dollars, he says, there’s a sense of responsibility.

“I saw it as a solid investment,” Rothschild told the Sun May 23. “Based on the valuation of the properties, based on the city willing to provide a TIF and the development costs, with the right plan, we could put together a financially viable development that we would be able to piece out and make a reasonable return on our capital and our effort over the coming years.”

Beyond capitalism, though, there’s the future.
