Hadley University Park plans took shape 22 years ago
Twenty years ago this week, officials from Westmass Area Development Corporation unveiled plans to develop an 80-acre parcel off North Maple Street in Hadley. Known as Hadley University Park, the project was intended to provide office, research and light industrial space for University spinoff companies and firms interested in locating near the Five Colleges.
The project eventually yielded three buildings, the Mass Venture Center, which has housed various University offices and other tenants, and two structures used by National Evaluation Systems.
