Winstanley Enterprises Acquires 135-Acre Shovel-Ready Distribution Site in Enfield, CT


Enfield, CT – Winstanley Enterprises LLC has acquired a 135-acre parcel of land known as Metro Park North located at 1697 King Street in Enfield, CT. The shovel-ready parcel, situated at the intersection of Route 5 and Corporate Road, has received all necessary state and local approvals to support development. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Winstanley Enterprises says it is confident that as the warehouse and distribution sector continues to thrive, businesses looking to quickly fulfill their distribution needs in the marketplace and to ex-pand or establish their presence will be attracted to this shovel-ready site.

“This property boasts unlimited potential and enables companies to hit the ground running in a very short time,” said Adam Winstanley, Principal of Winstanley Enterprises. “Traditionally its months or years before a company can secure permitting to break ground on a development, but this fully entitled site offers prospective tenants expedited speed-to-market potential, building cus-tomization input, and it’s a great location.”

Metro Park North has received approvals for over 600,000 square feet of development including a 500,225 square foot distribution facility as well as a 100,125 square foot flex building which is predominantly warehouse space and incorporates office space needs. The site also has been ap-proved for ample vehicle and trailer parking as well as cross-dock trailer spaces.

The property’s strategic location offers exceptional proximity and unparallel access to I-91via two exits (exits 45 and 46), is only approximately nine minutes to Bradley International Airport, and is approximately twelve minutes to Hartford and Springfield.

Winstanley Enterprises will immediately begin to market the property to prospective tenants. Upon securing tenant interest, construction is anticipated to commence in early to mid-2024.

Winstanley Enterprises has invested heavily in Enfield over the years, most recently having cele-brated grand openings for leading life science company Eppendorf as well as the Northeast’s premier dairy co-operative Agri-Mark at their North Maple Street property. The real estate devel-opment and management firm also owns over 1.1 million square feet of additional office/ware-house/distribution space in town leased to brands including Lego, Coca-Cola, and Advanced Auto Parts. The company also has received all local approvals and recently settled its litigation for an 819,000 square foot distribution facility at 35 Bacon Road as part of the final phase of re-juvenation at the former Hallmark site in Enfield.
