Setting the Stage: Creation of an Industrial Park

By Colliers Engineering & Design

Finding land that will accommodate an industrial park project is as important as its location. Finding a location with strategic access to major transportation corridors is golden! Wawayanda is a 35-squaremile town in Orange County, NY, with seven hamlets and open space zoned and available for commercial development. The Dolsontown Road Industrial Park encompasses over 150 acres. While several existing commercial spaces flank Dolsontown Road, the majority of the area is a mixture of open fields, woodlands, and wetlands. As a bonus, the western end of this 1-mile stretch is in close proximity to major highway access. Dolsontown Road intersects with State Route 17M and is a half-mile from Interstate 84 (I-84), one of the region’s pre-eminent freeways originating outside Scranton, Penn., and running through the northeastern states to Sturbridge, Mass. Interstate 84 also strategically connects to Interstate 87 through an interchange at Newburgh that runs between New York City and Montreal.

The project is consistent with the municipal zoning and the town’s comprehensive plan set forth in the town’s zoning law, which stipulates that the site should provide the town with a principal area for intensive nonresidential development such as office, retail, service businesses, and manufacturing. Indeed, the project is anticipated to be less intensive than a variety of other uses that are permitted by site plan approval or special use permit, including contractor yards, motor vehicle sales and services, high-traffic retail and service businesses, industrial and manufacturing uses, and mining operations.
