New Marlborough Business

After 2 years of stagnation, the Crowley Drive section of the trail is seeing new economic activity. Vestas Technology is a large wind turbine company from Denmark, that is building a generator  testing lab in the office park next to the trail. Construction had started last month, and is scheduled to be finished in 2012. They are also leasing office space in the 4-story building next door. That makes them the first tenant in the empty building that was built 3 years ago, but was caught in the 2008 recession.

The other site in the neighborhood is Toll Brothers “Regency at Assabet Ridge“. This is a 55+ condominium complex that is being built by the largest multi-unit residential developer in the country. The first 4-unit town house opened 2 years ago, but was only used as the sales office. The rest of the 69 units were put on hold because of the economy. But since late summer, construction of the next 12 units has started. The name of this community is directly inspired by the Assabet River Rail Trail, being located 50 feet from their gateway entrance.
