Located on 17.46 acres in the industrial south-end of Waterbury, the property was purchased in 2017 by 698 South Main Street Inc., a single purpose entity originally created in partnership with the City and Waterbury Development Corporation to redevelop the property. The City recently invested ~$2.7 million to put a new roof on the 200,000 square foot High-Bay building to position it for near-term redevelopment. The roof was completed in January 2021. Other features of the site include:
- Located in an Enterprise Zone and adjacent to an Opportunity Zone
- The High Bay building has six garage doors and 29 ft. ceilings
- Includes the ability to activate rail spur, if desired
- Across the river and on Washington Avenue lies a high powered gas company that can supply power and potential heat to the site.
- Include several ceiling cranes that can be retrofitted and repurposed
- Future site of the Naugatuck Valley Greenway
The City of Waterbury was recently awarded $4.2M to continue revitalizing the site.
