HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – If you travel South Maple Street in Hadley, then you’ve probably noticed the construction of a new structure underway.

22News learned that a new three-story storage facility with climate control is being built on over 4 acres of farmland. It is right next to the supermarket, Maple Farm Foods.

According to the Hadley Planning Board Clerk, Bill Dwyer, Ideal Movers is building and operating the facility, but a separate LLC is to be formed to own the real estate.

“As far as a building permit, I have reviewed and received all needed information to issue the building permit, as well as received all needed Departments, Boards, and Commission sign-offs,” said Thomas Quinlan, Jr., Building Commissioner/Zoning Officer for Hadley. “The developer listed on the permit application is BH Real Estate LLC.”

Dwyer added that, “This is a private project being erected on land zoned since 1963 for “Industrial” use; it is a private development and the town makes no separate determination of ‘need’ for a use allowed by right in the district.”

A proposed completion date has not yet been announced. There weren’t any tax incentives in Hadley for this project.
