Orange, CT The town of Orange has welcomed new business to their industrial sector along Marsh Hill and Edison Rds. On a 42-acre site on Marsh Hill Rd., a 47,178 s/f distribution facility and 9,680 s/f maintenance building is currently being constructed for FedEx.
First Selectman James Zeoli said, “With a large portion of the business community utilizing online sales, the FedEx distribution facility is a great use for this property. The parcel being so close to the highway is beneficial for FedEx and we are pleased the vacancy has finally been filled.”
Also on Marsh Hill Rd., a new Hilton Homewood Suites, consisting of 121 all-suite units is almost to completion, with an opening scheduled this summer. The hotel has frontage along the I-95 entrance ramp and will be the town’s second hotel.
In addition, a tract of land encompassing Edison and Indian River Rds. was subdivided into four in 2017, with two of the parcels being sold in 2018. A one-story 57,370 s/f facility is currently being construction for a VA Community Care Center, which will house health related services for veterans. Adjacent to the VA, a 42,000 s/f structure is in process for Eastern Tech, a specialty ink and coatings manufacturer. The VA is scheduled for completion at the end of the year and Eastern Tech should be completed in first quarter 2020. The remaining two tracts of land are currently under contract.
The town is also excited to announce HomeSense will be joining the Orange Meadows Shopping Center at 560 Boston Post Rd.
HomeSense sells home décor products and is part of the TJX Companies Inc. umbrella, including TJMaxx, Marshalls, Sierra, and HomeGoods. The store is set to open in the fall, and it will be the first in the state.
“We are very happy to welcome these fine businesses to town and look forward to having them join our community,” Zeoli said
