Hilco Real Estate Announces an Opportunity Zone 125± Acre Development Site for Sale

Aug 02, 2019

Hilco Real Estate, LLC announces the new listing of a 125± acre development site in Groveton, N.H., for sale in a Federally Designated Opportunity Zone – a parcel of land ideal for the energy, manufacturing and technology sectors and easily divisible and ready for immediate redevelopment.

Opportunity Zone Site for Sale

The site features a natural gas transmission system tap – the only tap in New Hampshire with direct rail, truck and pipe access – as well as ownership of all electrical poles and transmission lines.

Since 2014, more than $15 million has been invested by current ownership on land acquisition, site demolition, environmental remediation, renovation to the existing warehouse and buildings, and improvement of the site’s utility infrastructure. Current ownership has also worked diligently with various local and state agencies to secure funding for water and sewer, access roads and increase telecom coverage.

In addition to the tax incentives available through the Opportunity Zone program, the site may qualify for additional federal and state incentives, including the New Market Tax Credit Census Tract, the New Hampshire Research and Development Tax Credit, the Coos County Job Creation Tax Credit, the Economic Revitalization Zone and the New Hampshire Job Training Fund. An on-site Co-Gen power facility (not included in the sale) may provide electricity to facilities at below-market rates. The potential for reduced electricity rates, combined with the associated revenue from the transmission and distribution of the electricity through the existing poles and transmission line infrastructure, add further value for the buyer.

The site is the setting for much local history as well, as it is the former site of the Wausau Paper Mill. In 2016, NSA Industries, a metal fabrication company out of St. Johnsbury, Vt., leased (and have since purchased) 73,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space on the site and were able to immediately fill more than 100 jobs by tapping into the surrounding area’s skilled workforce. Current ownership hopes to find the right buyer and end user for the site who will continue to provide great employment opportunities for residents.

This development site is located approximately 1 mile from the N.H./Vermont border, 36 miles from the Canadian border, 2.5 hours to the Portland International Airport & Port, 3 hours to Boston and 3 hours to Montreal, Quebec. The site has direct access to Canada via the Vermont Rail System.

Jeff Azuse, Senior Vice President with Hilco Global, said, “Hilco Real Estate is excited to offer this sprawling development site for sale that holds so much history – a site that holds incredible potential for an energy, manufacturing or technology end user, and great opportunity for the residents of Groveton.”

Azuse continued, “The gas tap, power lines and on-site power facility, along with the potential for incentives from federal and state government and the Opportunity Zone program, will provide the right buyer with a ton of value-added potential which few sites in New England can offer.”
