Coldwell Banker Commercial NRT, Boston, said it has been selected to exclusively market “a 230,000-square-foot brick-and-beam industrial green complex in downtown Holyoke along the city’s rejuvenated canal system.’’

The building on 195 Appleton St. is available for lease or sale, the firm said.

According to Coldwell Banker Commercial NRT, Boston, the property sits on roughly three acres of industrial-zoned land “at the heart of Holyoke’s emerging ‘Green’ Innovation District.’’

Previously, the property utilized its large onsite hydroelectric power plant to power manufacturing mills.

The Coldwell Banker Commercial NRT, Boston, team on this property includes Christina Tiemann and David Crowley.


“This is a rare opportunity to acquire a unique, energy-independent industrial complex offering users substantial energy cost savings along with potential tax credits and grants given its clean power ‘green’ potential,’’ Tiemann said in a statement. “We see the property as particularly well suited to host any number of the Commonwealth’s growing array of green industries, including biotech and pharmaceutical manufacturing, computer services and cloud computing, education, distribution, and hydroponic agriculture.’’

 The property is adjacent to the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center, the largest green computing center in the Northeast, the firm said. The center supports the scientific, engineering and R&D innovation needs for Boston University, Harvard University, MIT, Northeastern University, and the University of Massachusetts, which are in partnership with EMC and Cisco Systems.
