The Chicopee River Business Park is the region’s single largest economic development project in the last decade. The 181-acre park is located in both Springfield and Chicopee and required extensive environmental and municipal permitting. Assembly of the park land was completed in 1999 and road construction was finished in 2001 providing necessary infrastructure to the various parcels within the Park.

Key Developments
  • Prima North America, now employing 79 people moved to the park in 2002 and expanded in 2006.
  • Harvey Industries acquired 32 acres of land in March 2007 with plans to construct more than 250,000 square feet of manufacturing space.
  • A Crane Construction acquired approximately 11 acres of land in September 2018 for the construction of an 18,000 square foot facility now being used for offices and light industrial use.
  • The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts purchased over 16 acres of land in December 2020 for the construction of a new distribution center.
  • A fully operational solar field.

Westmass still has several parcels available within the business park that are prime for development.
