The 3-acre 759 Hamilton Street property was formerly operated by TYCO Electronics for the manufacturing of electronic components for the computer and communications industries. The facility closed in 2009. Real Estate Collaborative (REC), a subsidiary of Cumberland County Economic Development Corporation (CAEDC) acquired the property in 2017.
After sitting dormant for several more years, Cumberland County pursued direct TA from the EPA to determine what opportunities existed to further incentivize redevelopment. As a result of the TA, the Cumberland County Economic Development Corporation acquired the site and moved the site into redevelopment. A major aspect of this work included performing the additional site assessment activities (with an EPA Assessment grant).
