After years-long delay, Windsor’s Great Pond Village development eyes biotech research center, data center, major industrial tenants, more housing

Windsor’s Great Pond Village mixed-use development experienced more than a decade of delays and many plan changes before its first phase debuted in 2019, with the opening of the 230-unit Preserve at Great Pond luxury apartments complex. Several other projects are lining up, including a data center, age-restricted residential community, 185 units of additional housing and a research and development facility for an international biotech company, according to Adam Winstanley, a principal for Massachusetts-based Winstanley Enterprises, which is Great Pond’s master developer. Winstanley was chosen in 2008 by ABB Combustion Engineering as a partner in development of the company’s site along Day Hill Road and now is co-owner of the property. ABB spent about $150 million cleaning the site, which had once served as a testing facility for nuclear propulsion as well as a center of nuclear fuel production for submarines.
