Brookhaven Technology Center
Project History In August of 1999, Exit 68 Development LLC acquired 9 parcels of land totaling approximately 47 acres in a defunct industrial park then known as the Brookhaven R&D Plaza. All 9 parcels are zoned L1- Light Industrial and are located in a Compatible Growth Area and in a designated Empire Zone.
TRITEC developed and implemented a plan to revitalize and rebrand the park. The plan included; renaming the park to the Brookhaven Technology Center (BTC); getting the Department of Energy to take responsibility to clean up environmental problems caused by Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL); getting the Town of Brookhaven’s Economic Development Corporation to complete the road, electric, water and gas service; creating town of Brookhaven Sewer District #2; arranging for the Sewer District to be fully funded $9,370,000 through the Federal Stimulus Plan and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation; landscaping all of the weed strewn common areas.
In 2001 TRITEC completed a new corporate headquarters for Anorad a Rockwell Automation Company on lot G. This facility features highly specialized construction to accommodate Anorad’s equipment that is precise to the nanometer. TRITEC completed a Design Build project for Atlantic Industrial Technologies providing complete turn-key services from preconstruction and permitting through construction and final sign-off.
The Brookhaven Technology Center Today
In October of 2008 the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation announced $9,370,000 in low cost financing for the creation of state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant at the Brookhaven Technology Center.
The Brookhaven Town Supervisor at the time, Brian X. Fole,y said “Constructing this sewer facility in the tow’s Empire Zone will allow more business to locate here and ultimately create more job opportunities for area residents – all of this while protecting our ground water. This is a win-win for the residents and the environment.”
The Empire Zone benefits for the BTC were extended for 10 more years in August of 2006.
To date TRITEC has sold 6 sites totaling 35 acres, of the 47, to technology companies and a full services hotel.
