A West Hartford church is marketing an undeveloped parcel near UConn Health in Farmington.

An 18 -acre undeveloped Farmington parcel that a West Hartford church owns in the shadow of UConn Health Center and Jackson Laboratory is being marketed to developers eager to leverage proximity to thousands of people providing medical services and research.

Commercial realty broker-adviser CBRE-New England announced Tuesday the availability of the rear tract at 8231 and 9249 Farmington Ave. that the Farmington Avenue Baptist Church of West Hartford owns. Asking price was not disclosed.

CBRE brokers John McCormick and Anna Koscondy have the listing.

Located within the Farmington Avenue/Route 4 medical corridor, the tract is accessible from I-84, via Exit 39.

The site, part of Farmington recently designated "Innovation Zone,'' also can reached via a signaled intersection adjacent to UConn, at 400 Farmington Avenue. The zone, officials say, is allows for a higher flexibility/density of mixed-use buildings and developments, including medical and professional offices, single- and multi-family housing, and biotechnology and related research and development.

Farmington Avenue Baptist Pastor Jeremy Sweatt said his congregation is "excited to be able to have a small part" in the Innovation Zone's progress, adding "we are confident that the development of these parcels will be a significant and ongoing benefit to the community."

CORRECTION: A previous version misidentified the church's hometown.
