With Coca-Cola, Plastipak and Lego, we're three for three.

Hackman Capital announced today that The Coca-Cola Company has leased 281,000 square feet at 555 Taylor Road in Enfield Business Park. The company will be using the space for the distribution of finished goods, associated with the expansion of their Northampton bottling operations. The lease is one of the largest to have been executed in Southern New England over the last several years.

"We are thrilled that we could offer the company the state-of-the-art space they were seeking in a location so strategic for their operations," said Michael Hackman, founder and CEO of Hackman Capital.

Coca-Cola will be joining Plastipak and LEGO at the high-image industrial facility at 555 Taylor Road. Plastipak leased 222,799 square feet at the building in December, 2009. LEGO, which occupies more than 200,000 square feet at the building and a total of more than 400,000 square feet at the park, renewed their lease in December, 2009.

"Enfield Business Park is one of the few facilities capable of landing such significant tenants," said Sean Duffy of Cushman Wakefield, the property's leasing broker. "With Coca-Cola, Plastipak and Lego, we're three for three. But it's no wonder we offer a lot of bang for the buck."
