F.W. Webb eyes Merrimack site for warehouse
F.W. Webb, the largest plumbing, heating and HVAC distributor in New England, has preliminary plans to possibly construct a nearly 1 million-square-feet distribution facility near the St. Gobain Corp. in Merrimack, where a separate mixed-used development project is now in the works.
F.W. Webb has entered into a purchase-and-sale agreement with the Flatley Company to buy the plot, however the purchase has not yet been finalized, according to Kevin Walker, a civil engineer with the Flatley Company.
Kevin Flight, media communications representative for F.W. Webb, confirmed Thursday that a purchase-and-sale agreement has been signed.
While the details of the F.W. Webb project are still premature, the separate mixed-use development being planned by the Flatley Company is moving forward.
The project includes five residential buildings for a total of 110 one-bedroom apartments and 130 two-bedroom apartments, along with a clubhouse, pool, tennis courts and playground.
Brannon told the planning board that Flatley would like to move forward with at least the first phase of its own development — the residential apartments.
Planning officials expressed concern over some of the parking layout, and the idea of building retail and commercial space that could eventually sit empty without tenants.
According to its website, F.W. Webb has more than 77 locations in eight states, and employs more than 1,700 employees.
