Bids are due late next month for the campus, and Motorola islooking to close by the end of the year, says Jones Lang LaSallemanaging director Guy Ponticiello. "Certainly an end-user in ahigh-tech manufacturing field could be an ideal buyer, but thereare also a lot of possibilities for investors as well as buyerswith alternative uses in mind," Ponticiello says. "We plan to casta very wide net in marketing the property, and expect to see avariety of bids in the coming weeks."

Although he considers high-tech manufacturing to be theproperty's highest and best use, Ponticiello adds residentialredevelopment is a leading alternative. A local developer hadproposed a $10-million water park, and retail redevelopment alsohas been mentioned. "Everything is open, and possible," Ponticiellotells GlobeSt.com.
