Arkley Keeping Busy On East Coast
Security National LLC, owned by Robin Arkley, Humboldt's very own big-cheese uber-republican, has big plans for an industrial development in Plympton, Mass.
The preliminary plan calls for 800,000 square feet of warehouse and distribution space, 200,000 square feet for general business use, a 200-seat restaurant, and a 120-room hotel.
Arkley's Security National Commercial LLC only completed the purchase of the last 3 acres on the fringe of the industrial park last week which was owned by the state of Massachusetts.
"We've had a lot of discussion for a great variety of possibilities," said Richard Gauley, a longtime town official who is now a real estate consultant.
"Now people are going to see a lot of grading and tree clearing," Gauley said.
In 1995, Security National bought 130 acres on Spring Street for $650,000. The property features 3,500 feet of frontage along Route 44 for businesses looking for visibility. And its location makes it attractive to warehouse and distribution operations, since 44 connects Interstate 495 and Route 24 to Route 3.
