Enterprise Park (EPCAL)
The Enterprise Park at Calverton is a planned redevelopment of a 2,900-acre property formerly known as the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant at Calverton, assembled by the Navy in the 1950s and leased to the Grumman Corporation for final assembly and flight-testing of military aircraft. In 1996, defense downsizing resulted in closure of the Grumman facility. In September 1998, the U.S. Government transferred the site to the Town of Riverhead Community Development Agency on the condition it be used for economic development to replace thousands of well-paid jobs and tax base lost by the Grumman closure.
Existing Site Access & Infrastructure
The property is located between Grumman Boulevard/Swan Road and New York State Route 25 with access off Exit 69 of Long Island Expressway (I-495). The property is also in close proximity to Long Islands North Fork and South Fork ("Hamptons") communities. The site is within sixty miles of JFK International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, and Islip/MacArthur Airport and transportation is available to the market area by rail as well. An active 10,000-foot runway and a rail spur under redevelopment within EPCAL are available to serve the operating industrial core site of approximately 492 acres and the pending developments at two additional sites (a 300 acre industrial park and a 755 acre commercial-recreational project). The property is serviced by the Town of Riverhead Water District and the Calverton Sewer District. In 2001 the Town of Riverhead CDA sold approximately 492 acres of the Planned Industrial Park zoned core to Calverton Camelot LLC. Currently, a little more than 1 million square feet of industrial and office space exists employing over 500 with subdivision plans for development of an additional 2 million square feet in 37 separate parcels.
