The 113-acre former Fore River Shipyard is a prominent opportunity for a company looking to establish a campus style location that includes R&D and a manufacturing setting tailored to a company’s individual needs and standards. The property has tremendous waterfront access, a deep water shipping channel, berthing spaces and a commercial rail running through the site. A completed master plan for the property emphasizes smart growth and transit oriented development principals, making this a very attractive site opportunity.

The property is at the mouth of the Fore River, which flows into Boston’s Outer Harbor and can accommodate off-load vessels directly into the property. The predominant area of the Shipyard is in the City of Quincy, and is zoned Industrial B.  Approximately 1/3 of the Shipyard is in the Town of Braintree and is zoned Highway Business.
