Weymouth: Dutch Robotics Company Backs Out of Union Point Project

Plans for the Dutch Robotics Company to build their headquarters and manufacturing plant at Union Point in Weymouth have fallen through.

The company says one reason for backing out of the deal is due to costs.

Prodrive was planning on spending $25 million to build their headquarters, but new estimated costs put the project $10 million over their budget.

The company says another reason is time restraints.

They say between the new cost estimates and trying to get their business up and moving here in the states, they need to look for a space that is already available and scrap any construction projects.

ProDrive was supposed to be the first large commercial tenant to build their American headquarters and manufacturing plant at the site when they announced the deal back in 2016.
