There is no other place in Massachusetts quite like Devens. Just 35 miles west of Boston, Devens is a 4,400-acre planned community with a business-friendly attitude, growing residential presence, and ample outdoor recreational amenities.

MassDevelopment is the master developer of Devens, working to create a community that is both economically sound and environmentally friendly. After serving as the U.S. Army’s New England headquarters for 79 years, Fort Devens was closed in 1996. With financial support from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, MassDevelopment purchased the property and undertook redevelopment efforts. Today, 100+ diverse businesses – including leaders in biopharma, clean energy, and manufacturing, call Devens home. These companies employ close to 10,000 workers. Prime highway accessibility, efficient 75-day or less permitting, a robust utility infrastructure, and financing capabilities from predevelopment through construction and fit-up make Devens an ideal location.
