Winstanley Enterprises LLC, a Massachusetts real estate company that owns several major properties in New Haven, last month announced its purchase of 370 Winchester Ave. The property, a few blocks northwest of the Sterling Chemistry Lab, the factory was abandoned following its closing in March 2006. Company owner Carter Winstanley outlined his plans to renovate the building prior to a lease agreement. He said he discussed the building’s prospects with Yale before beginning his renovations. A “new façade, site improvements, landscaping and internal improvements” will turn the dilapidated factory — which manufactured the storied Winchester repeating rifle — into a modern, “mixed-use” building equipped with “office space and other related” facilities, he said.

Winstanley Enterprises has purchased the former U.S. Repeating Arms Co. in Science Park. The company plans to turn the building, which was formerly used to manufacture Winchester rifles, into office space — much like the rest of Yale’s property.
