Myles Standish Industrial Park
A 220-acre property in Taunton, the site of a former school for the disabled, had sat vacant for years. Worse, the site had a negative land value due to the demolition, remediation, and new infrastructure required for redevelopment. MassDevelopment partnered with the Taunton Development Corporation to expand the nearby Myles Standish Industrial Park—home to 100 companies and a major contributor to the region’s economy. The expansion has attracted businesses like Sullivan Tire, Columbia Gas/NiSource, and Martignetti Companies. That means more than 2,000 new jobs and more than $2 million in tax revenue for Taunton.
