LEE, Mass. — A Wisconsin-based development company has bought three vacant paper mills in western Massachusetts and is talking with local officials and others about how to use the properties.

Niagara Worldwide of Niagara, Wisconsin, bought the Columbia and Greylock mills in Lee and the Niagara Mill in Lenox Dale. The sale prices weren’t disclosed.

Niagara President Eric Spirtas told The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1kmp41j ) that his company is working with local officials, other developers and prospective tenants on possible redevelopment of the mills, which were closed more than six year ago by previous owner Schweitzer-Mauduit International. Spirtas also says the company will be seeking the public’s input.

The Columbia and Niagara mills date back to the 1800s, while the Greylock Mill was built in the mid-1960s. All three are in residential neighborhoods.

NIAGARA DEVELOPMENT COMMITS TO A 2012 FACE LIFT

January 16, 2012 – NIAGARA WISCONSIN (For Immediate Release)

NIAGARA DEVELOPMENT COMMITS TO A 2012 FACE LIFT 

 

Niagara Development is quickly approaching its February 11th one year anniversary as owner of the former NewPage Paper Mill in Niagara Wisconsin and operator of the 1,300 acre property conversion that straddles the Menominee River in both Dickinson and Marinette Counties.

After exhaustive research and on site review from industry experts and business redevelopment teams from around the region, it has become clear that many of the “purpose built” structures on the site were not an advantage to new comers, but as stated by most suitors, a deterrent to utilization and restoration.  “NIAGARA has engaged real estate and construction professionals alike to walk the vacant buildings that were used for the manufacturing of ‘Paper’, ‘Pulp’ and ‘Power’ in order to outline options that fit the areas reuse plan.  Every response focused on the difficulty of conversion to standard industrial use,” says President of NIAGARA Development, Eric J Spirtas.  “Every professional sees the immediate value in the; Shipping, Coating and Warehouse buildings, but highlights a ‘disconnect’ when considering the reuse of the remaining large multi-story industrial buildings.”

Recently a National firm contacted NIAGARA Development, offering to buy all of the structures and associated equipment at the facility to “Demolish and Scrape” the entire site, creating a cleared brownfield parcel.  This proposal did not fit NIAGARA Development’s desire or intent.  Instead NIAGARA Development took this opportunity to strategically plan the retention of the most marketable buildings, while accepting parts of the original proposition, which will result in the removal of the un-usable buildings.  This work will start immediately and will open up the remainder of the site for re-purposing of any type.  “Removing the unsuitable buildings will provide NIAGARA with a unique opportunity to market available space to any type of company and then specifically design buildings and usage patterns that fit the needs of today’s buyer,” says Spirtas.

The company removing the unusable structures will also spend a significant amount of money getting the railroad back in full operation giving NIAGARA Development a distinct advantage in marketing the property to new businesses.  “Bringing in upgraded rail will be a benefit to the mill property’s long-term redevelopment plans providing greater value to the remaining buildings,” says Niagara Mayor, George Bousley.  “Rail will be rebuilt from Kimberly Road to the mill site.”

“The Niagara facility offers some exceptional opportunities in Northeast Wisconsin for manufacturing and warehousing/distribution,” according to Tom Scheuerman, CPA, and managing broker of Grubb & Ellis|Pfefferle in Appleton, WI.  “From our vantage point, the repositioning and reuse of a former manufacturing facility like in Niagara offers great advantages for both companies looking for affordable space with excellent attributes and local communities with outstanding ready work forces.  In order to attract new business into an area, we have seen that facilities like Niagara are critical to that process because they are on-line and ready for occupancy.  This facility offers some exceptional manufacturing space, low-cost power, waste water treatment, expansion capability, rail service and hundreds of acres of land that can be very attractive to new businesses.”

Spirtas continues to show his commitment to the local area by setting up his corporate headquarters known as NIAGARA Worldwide at the Mill.  He will be using the former Clubhouse building as his main offices.  Extensive renovations are underway in that structure right now for occupancy in the next few weeks.  NIAGARA Worldwide specializes in services ranging from; Acquisitions, Consulting, Contracting, Development, Mining, Liquidation, and Trading.  Niagara Worldwide is NIAGARA Development’s first tenant setting up its operation in the notable Clubhouse building.

“The NewPage Niagara Mill redevelopment team named the Upper Menominee River Area Alliance (UMRAA), including New North, Inc., continues to focus on repurposing the mill site,” said Jerry Murphy, Executive Director of New North, Inc., the economic development organization of the 18-county region of Northeast Wisconsin, known as the New North region.   “The Redevelopment team looks forward to continuing to work with NIAGARA Worldwide to market the existing mill site for future use.”

“The current ownership of Niagara is optimizing the site and removing old buildings that are functionally obsolete and a deterrent to future use and development.  This will enhance the site and allow for expansion capability around the structures that are usable for manufacturing and warehousing.  This approach of preparing sites and redevelopment of the facilities offers the greatest opportunity to attract new business.  We have seen this formula work successfully in other communities,” says Scheuerman.

ADDITIONAL “CLUB HOUSE” HISTORY AND INFORMATION:

The first Club House was built in the year 1907 with the formal opening early in 1908.  The original building included a soda fountain, a small ice cream parlor, poolroom, shower and locker rooms, bowling alleys, and the gymnasium, which served alternately as gymnasium and theater.  A second floor housed the library, a dining room and kitchen, and rooms rented by the Masonic Lodge.  The Club House was rebuilt in 1926, with only the gymnasium of the original building remaining.  The bowling alleys were moved to the west side of the building, the ice cream parlor was enlarged as was the soda fountain, and the large lobby was constructed and furnished.  In addition, the second floor at that time had a modern kitchen, dining room: a Women’s Club Room, and lodge Rooms.

The Papermill Workers’Unionmaintains an office there.  The Skating Club used the Club facilities for planning their Annual Ice Review.  The second floor housed the Village Offices, and there was a Village Board Room.  The Post Office was located in the northeast corner of the first floor, and the Girls Scouts maintain a room on the second floor for their meetings.  The Niagara Community Club remained a truly “community” affair, for few activities of theNiagaravillage came into being without the Club playing some part.
