"Gardiner's Libby Hill Business Park is an exciting story of community collaboration, an ideal environment near I-95 for businesses to locate and grow in the Capitol region. The park is already a major contributor to the economic vitality of the Augusta micropolitan region - with plenty of room for expansion."
Peter Thompson, President & CEO
Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce
"Visit Gardiner; you will see why this is a great place to work and live. We are a small town with full city services - all here to help your business grow."
Scott Morelli, City Manager
Location is Everything
Libby Hill is located immediately off of Interstate 295 and the Maine Turnpike. It is only 45 mintues from Portland, an hour and a half south of Bangor, and two hours from Boston.
Seventy-five percent (75%) of Mainers live within 50 miles of Libby Hill. That's nearly one million residents, many of whom are potential employees and customers.
Ready to Develop
All building sites at Libby Hill are pre-permitted, and our Planning and Development office stands ready to assist you with local permitting, tax incentives, and other resources.
For Sale or Lease
Libby Hill lots are for sale at some of the best values in New England, and are virtually free through our "Free Land" program for developers (see program information, below), but may also be offered as build-to-suit with lease and purchase options.
“We relocated our beverage distribution center to the Libby Hill Business Park and the move has been hugely successful and positive. Our new location offers tremendous access to the state, and Gardiner has both a City government that embraces economic development and a downtown filled with shops, restaurants, arts, and culture.”
