The Central Massachusetts region is rapidly diversifying its economy, with biotechnology and research companies taking the lead. The area benefits from a large pool of skilled labor and a well-established network of higher education institutions. In addition, industrial machinery and equipment and fabricated metal products account for one third of the manufacturing employment in Central Massachusetts.

Team members work with 76 communities and have a keen sense of the changing dynamics of their unique region, making it easier to customize financing products and real estate development services to meet the needs of businesses and organizations.

Located in Central Massachusetts, Devens is a 4,400 acre mixed-use community and an award winning model for military base reuse. After serving as the U.S. Army’s New England headquarters for 79 years, Fort Devens was closed in 1996. MassDevelopment purchased the property and, with financial support from the Commonwealth, is redeveloping Devens into a sustainable and diverse mixed-use community.
