Can’t Find Modern Industrial & Warehouse Space in Leominster? Try Southgate Business Park

The Sentinel recently ran an article about developer Jim Whitney’s latest and greatest project, Southgate Business Park, a fully permitted business park located in South Leominster that will cater to high tech companies looking for modern manufacturing and warehouse¬†facilities.

Jim Whitney, a local developer who spent years building houses in the area, is hoping to attract some high tech companies to Leominster by offering pad ready sites ready for the construction of modern manufacturing and¬†warehouse facilities just a short distance from Route 2 and I-190. Industrial space in Leominster is certainly plentiful but it’s also virtually obsolete. Guess what Mr. Landlord with 100,000 SF of 16′ clear industrial space…be glad you get phone calls at all…if you get a bite, take it! Southgate Business Park is going to offer the flexibility and modern amenities that existing buildings in the area can’t.

Southgate Business Park has received two sizable grants which will help Whitney to bring utilities to the park and also pay for the construction of the road. The first grant he received was a $1M MORE grant which will help pay to bring water and sewer to the site and the second was a $1.1M PWED grant which will also help fund infrastructure improvements. The grants are all about bringing jobs to Central Massachusetts and Jim is in a position to really impact the local economy in a huge way…

I’ve spoken with Jim about the project and it sounds like something the area hasn’t seen and isn’t going to be another Jytek Park by any means. This park is going to feature wider roadways, landscaped islands, green space, and of course the ability to accommodate medical device companies, life science companies, bio-manufacturing and bio-medical companies, and the like…

Leominster is also in a position to be at the forefront of the state’s 43d permitting program which essentially expedites the permitting process for companies looking to move into a designated area. This is a big change from the usual time-consuming and extremely burdensome permitting process that cities and towns have been working with.

So come spring Jim Whitney should be building a road, grading sites, creating some serious curb appeal, and welcoming his first tenants…Who is going to be the first company to set up shop at Southgate Business Park in Leominster? We’ll see…
