TRITEC's Exit 68 Development LLC acquired nine parcels of land totaling approximately 47 acres in a defunct industrial park, then known as the Brookhaven R&D Plaza. All nine parcels are zoned L1- Light Industrial and located in a Compatible Growth Area and a designated Empire Zone.
TRITEC began an extensive marketing campaign to revitalize the development and promote the Center's new image. The park is attractive for high technology tenants due to the proximity to Brookhaven National Laboratories (BNL).
