NORTON COMMERCE CENTER TENANT SERIES PRESENTS: PROMEDDX
Since 1998, Jeff and Don O’Neill have been in the real estate development business. Their organization formed to capitalize on development opportunities within the warehouse and transportation industries, and their first clients originated from the former O’Neill owned Condyne Freezers and Condyne Logistics. Following the divestment of both companies, Jeff and Don O’Neill focused on fostering real estate development opportunities within the industrial market, in particular, distribution centers. The O’Neill’s continued their entrepreneurial endeavor and formed additional entities to comprise Condyne and its affiliates as a full-service real estate development firm that utilizes vertical integration to be a single-source provider for all development needs including consultation, design, engineering, construction, and property management. The organization have developed in excess of 10 million square-feet across the New England region.
Condyne and its affiliates have acquired and/or developed 15 industrial business parks in Massachusetts and Rhode Island since its inception including the Norton Commerce Center. The Norton Commerce Center located at 15 Commerce Way in Norton, Massachusetts has 14 current tenants in its office and warehouse assets. In recent months, Condyne has moved forward with a proposal for a new industrial business park in the Town of Norton to be constructed on the former Houghton Land. The new development has similarities to the Norton Commerce Center including its location and intended uses. Therefore, Condyne has presented a “Tenant Series” to introduce the Town of Norton to the businesses the firm has attracted to the area as well as the benefits each one brings into the community.
