Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) released the following statement today on Alexion Pharmaceuticals' announcement it will expand its New Haven presence.
"Today's announcement is great news for New Haven, as Alexion will bring 200-300 jobs to the area as they establish their global headquarters in New Haven and play a role in the continued development of New Haven's bio-tech industry. I also want to recognize Governor Malloy for supporting this expansion and supporting New Haven's growth.
"This is also great news for one of New Haven's most important projects, the Downtown Crossing development. Alexion has the standing to draw more businesses to 100 College Street and help foster future development in the area. I have worked to secure funding for this project, which will create up to 2,000 construction jobs, in the past and will continue to advocate for the project connecting Downtown to Union Station until it is fully realized and helping to revitalize the area."
