PITTSFIELD, MA – The Pittsfield Economic Development Authority (PEDA) will host three Open House events, on August 24, August 31, and September 14 at the William Stanley Business Park, to showcase the park’s developable building sites. PEDA is encouraging potential developers, builders, existing businesses and community members to attend and learn about current and future plans and view available properties.
Each open house will run from 4-7 p.m., at the PEDA office on the corner of Kellogg Street and Woodlawn Avenue. Refreshments will be offered, and guests can gather information and see firsthand the sites available at the park. In addition, guided walking tours will be offered at 4:30 and 6 p.m.
“The summer season draws numerous visitors to the area, many of whom own or run businesses, so it’s an ideal time to highlight these wonderful building site opportunities,” said Corydon Thurston, PEDA Executive Director. “These are folks who already love to vacation in the Berkshires, and we’d like to encourage them, along with our local area business people, to consider growing their companies here at the William Stanley Business Park.”
In addition to current features and recent park enhancements, attendees can view the proposed site for Woodlawn Crossing, a 190,000-square foot building project that would transform the existing 16-acre concrete slabs on the “Teens” parcel for a Walmart Supercenter. The plan, offered by Needham-based Waterstone Retail Development, is expected to leverage mixed-use opportunities on adjacent and nearby neighborhood properties for additional retail businesses, medical offices, research and development, life sciences and light manufacturing, which PEDA anticipates will bring new, entrepreneurial focus on the eight available lots within the Park.
