What’s next for LEGO’s Enfield headquarters property?

LEGO leases a little more than half of a 550,555-square-foot property at 100 Print Shop Road in Enfield, which is owned by Winstanley Enterprises.

Adam Winstanley, a principal of Massachusetts-based Winstanley Enterprises, said LEGO’s move shouldn’t come as much of a shock.

“LEGO has been winding down operations for a long time in Enfield,” Winstanley said, adding he doesn’t expect the vacancy created by the toymaker’s exit to remain for long.

LEGO said it plans to relocate 740 employees from its Enfield headquarters to Boston by 2026.

Winstanley said he is planning a multimillion-dollar renovation of the nearly 50-year-old building upon LEGO’s exit. That will include hollowing out LEGO’s side of the building and getting it ready for industrial use.

Winstanley said he will upgrade sprinklers and convert to LED lighting throughout the building. He also plans to add new docks. Given its proximity to major highways and labor pools around Springfield and Hartford, Winstanley said he believes LEGO’s space will fill quickly.

“Enfield has been a location a lot of our clients like,” Winstanley said. “I’ve been investing in Connecticut projects since 1994. I’m very confident the building and its location will attract new users, either manufacturing or distribution.”
