Westfield, MA – In a location that once thrived as part of a computer manufacturing facility for the famed Digital Equipment Corporation, a joint-venture development team of Winstanley Enter-prises, LLC and NorthPoint Development is moving forward with approved plans to build a gen-eral warehouse / distribution facility.

The recently obtained state and local approvals for the sought-after location come as the warehouse and distribution sector continues to thrive.

Falcon Landing is an approved 524,000 square foot state-of-the-art general distribution facility that will be constructed for 1 to 2 tenants adjacent to the Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport on Falcon Drive in Westfield, Massachusetts. The 126-acre parcel will include 362 parking spaces to accommodate two employee shifts and 322 tractor trailer spaces. The site boasts easy accessibility and is located approximately 2.5 miles off the Massachusetts Turnpike exit.

In August of 2023, the joint-venture development team focused their multi-disciplined group of planners, engineers, and architects on developing a scaled-down distribution facility at this loca-tion. After listening to neighborhood concerns, the site plan incorporated a meticulously designed robust stormwater management plan, preservation of mature trees for buffering, and also elimi-nated any connections to North Road. The project received state (EOEA) approval in October 2023 and received local approval in February 2024.

“Our project team worked very hard to put forward a sensible plan that is rooted in community input, prioritizes protection of sensitive resources, and delivers economic development benefits to Westfield,” said Adam Winstanley, Principal of Winstanley Enterprises. “We are excited to move the project forward.”

Marketing efforts have ramped up to secure a suitable tenant; however, the warehouse will be built on ‘spec’ if a tenant is not secured prior to construction. With the needed approvals in hand, the team will continue to coordinate closely on finalizing both building design elements and traffic mitigation improvements.

“Falcon Landing is an ideal location for companies looking to grow their business at a brand-new state-of-the-art facility that offers easy accessibility from the Mass Pike,” said Andrew

Villari, Development Manager for NorthPoint Development. “We are proud to be a part of this project, and excited about the future in Westfield.”

The project team supporting NorthPoint Development and Winstanley Enterprises includes Epsi-lon Associates, VHB, Good Earth Advisors, and Watkins Strategies.
