On November 26, 2013 NCDC was honored by CERC at Celebrate Connecticut for their 50 years as an integral part of Norwich's economic landscape. Since 1963 NCDC has led development of over $250,000,000 in commercial, industrial and residential assets. Recent accomplishments include the $22M Transportation Center, $20M Mercantile Exchange, $6M Occum Park, and over $100,000 of Atlantic Packaging improvements. Prior projects include the establishment and expansion of the 450-acre Business Park and its industrial facilities. NCDC led the establishment of the Shetucket River and Yantic River Greenways and encouraged APA's designation of Downtown Norwich as one of America's 10 Great Neighborhoods.
Development began in 1964 on land purchased from Herman Sharpe and the Stott Family. NCDC continued to expand the park until 1996 and now it is a 450 acre Business Park with over 40 businesses and 2,300 employees.
Despite its age, the park is modern and includes residential and commercial establishments making it a place to live and work.
