2023 Forecast: Brunswick Landing’s goals include early tech development and new space

Photo / Tim Greenway Kristine Logan, executive director of Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, says early-stage technology companies, education and the new space industry are among its upcoming redevelopment goals.

The team that oversees Brunswick Landing has been proactive in attracting great companies that are focused on innovation and the future.

“Our job is to create a solid foundation that can support new companies, new housing and new recreation opportunities,” says Kristine Logan, executive director of Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, which manages Brunswick Landing.

Last year, Brunswick Landing added 23 tenants and sold four parcels for development, bringing the number of public and private entities at Brunswick Landing and Topsham Commerce Park to over 160, including 39 early-stage technology companies at their technology incubator, TechPlace.

In all, some 114 acres were sold, with about half being put into conservation.

The redevelopment authority has created property tax revenue for the towns of Brunswick and Topsham, preserved a total of 1,200 acres to be used for conservation and recreation and added 200 new housing units.

Coming up, goals include new wayfinding signage and, together with Maine DOT and Gorrill Palmer, finishing the design work for a bike-and-pedestrian trail. In the spring, construction will begin on Phase I of the town’s new Midcoast Athletic & Recreation Complex and additional housing that includes 188 apartment units, 85 single-family homes and 63 condominiums.

With education a redevelopment focus, MRRA, with the University of Maine Augusta, will open an Aviation Maintenance Technician School where students will train to be aviation technicians, and planning will begin for a new Life Science Center to support early-stage biotech companies.

As Brunswick Landing welcomes the “new space” industry, development of facilities to support the Maine Space Complex will begin along with efforts to attract new space companies.

“We have clearly established Brunswick Landing as Maine’s Center for Innovation and we are excited for our upcoming 2023 projects,” says Logan.
