Economic Development Sites in Lynn, Massachusetts 

July 27, 2022 12:02 pm

One of the North Shore Alliance’s roles is to support economic development initiatives across 30 towns along the northeast region of Massachusetts. We encourage and support growing companies and their leaders, but we also bolster new businesses by providing information about commercial development opportunities for entrepreneurs to start a new business or current business owners to expand their footprint. 

To do this, we highlight commercial priority development sites with the help of the region’s Economic Development Directors, City and Town Planners, and Community Directors. 

In staying with this month’s town spotlight featuring Lynn, Massachusetts, we will be looking at three potential economic development sites that could help your business take flight or expand. Please visit our North Shore Alliance site to check on availability as availability status may change.
