NORTON COMMERCE TENANT SERIES PRESENTS: CREATIVE IMPRINTS
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’Neills 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 has 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.

Creative Imprints is a revenue positive resource to the Town of Norton. The organization remains current with its real estate taxes; therefore, it is a direct contributor to the Town budget that is used to fund public schools, municipal functions, and police and fire protection. Furthermore, the organization does not represent a drain of resources since it uses limited Town provided services. Creative Imprint’s CEO Clifford Garnett recently discussed the best part of being a tenant within the Norton Commerce Center. He noted the industrial park provides a professional image when design engineers visit the site. Furthermore, the leased space in Norton is close to Route 495 and its geographic proximity to Providence and Boston is attractive to the organization. Creative Imprints is a notable business within the industrial park because of its attributes to the medical field as well as the Town of Norton.
