A 1,000 acre business park, a vibrant downtown with cobblestone streets, and historic mill structures along our riverfront provide development opportunities for a wide range of use and scale development project as New Bedford emerges as a metropolitan center for the South Coast of Massachusetts.
Surrounded by suburban small towns such as Dartmouth, Marion, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, and Rochester, we are able to draw on a population of 193,000 within a 15-minute drive with an annual spending power of more than $3.2 billion.
The city is on a ten-year cycle of redevelopment and renewal, and offers an attractive location for business and industry to establish, expand, and relocate within targeted development opportunities throughout the city.
Most notably, our downtown is an attractive location for new urban residential development with proven demand across a wide demographic range of potential city dwellers. Downtown projects newly opened include a boutique hotel, brewpubs and restaurants, and a co-creative center.
Here are examples of the type of opportunities that are available across the city. For more information or a tour, please contact Angela Johnston, our Director of Business Development.
