A Massachusetts marijuana growing facility is set to be built in 2017. This facility, located in Freetown, MA, will be the largest in the United States.
The 1 million-square-foot cultivation center is expected to start producing cannabis by next fall.
The new Massachusetts marijuana growing facility could begin construction as early as fall of 2017. Massachusetts is beginning to be a big player in the marijuana market.
Denver-based medical marijuana facility developer AmeriCann (OTCQX: ACAN) has named Campanelli Construction the general contractor for the first phase of its planned 1 million-square-foot Massachusetts Medical Cannabis Center in Freetown, which will be the largest facility of its kind when fully built out.
The facility is planned on a 53-acre tract in Freetown that had been owned by Boston Beer Co. (NYSE: SAM) for close to a decade. AmeriCann acquired the property this fall for $4.475 million in cash. Boston Beer had acquired the site in 2007 with plans to potentially develop a brewery there, but the project fell through. Prior to AmeriCann’s purchase, the 53-acre site has been listed for sale since 2008.
