Newington Park which offers 102,000 s/f of commercial, retail and medical office space.
Torrington plans to modernize the building and renovate its common areas, fitness facility and café.

We have a vision for the building that will solidify its place as the Seacoast’s premier commercial property,” said Jay Bisognano, founder and CEO of Torrington Properties. “Torrington will incorporate forward-thinking ideas to re-energize this space and make it an exciting place to work and run a business in the 21st century.”
The building is home to Bauer Hockey, a hockey equipment and apparel manufacturer, FH Cann & Associates, a financial recovery firm, Digital Prospectors, an IT staffing company, Garnet Hill, an online purveyor of high-quality garments, and Vapotherm, a medical device manufacturer.
The building offers commercial space including class A office, manufacturing areas and high-bay warehousing. It is in one of the New Hampshire Seacoast region’s premier business parks, with neighbors such as Lindt & Sprüngli, Timberland, and UPS.
100 Domain Dr. is situated off Exit 12 on Rte.101, about 2.5 miles from I-95 near the Mass. border.
Originally built in 1984, 100 Domain Dr. was the former corporate headquarters of Tyco International, a producer of optical and electronic components at the time, until it vacated the space about 20 years ago. The Boulos Company in Portsmouth brokered the deal on behalf of the seller, Period Realty Trust.MORE >
