Start-Up SpaceFinder: Offices With High-Speed Internet For Rent Just Off I-89 in Royalton 

Published August 15, 2013 at 7:56 a.m.

Looking for a central Vermont home for your techie start-up? Check out these two vacant office buildings just off Interstate89 in Royalton.

Both are wired for high-speed internet access through ECFiber, a non-profit coalition of 23 Vermont towns that's building a state-of-the-art fiber-optic network in rural Vermont. In fact, the first of these two vacant spaces is located on the same property as ECFiber's HQ.

This building at 461 Waterman Road offers 15 offices, a conference room, a small kitchen and a wooden deck overlooking the woods. 

Owner Russell “Lucky” Dimmick Jr. is part of a family known in the area for turning their family dairy farm into a successful trailer business, Lucky’s Trailers.

Now Dimmick and ECFiber are hoping to transform this vacant building into a high-speed haven for local businesses that are currently forced to locate elsewhere to find good connectivity.


Its neighbors are ECFiber, GW Plastics, Green Mountain Pipeline Service and Woodlawn Farm Eventing, a popular horse-riding facility.

Only five miles south of Waterman Road is South Royalton, home of Vermont Law School and a quaint downtown strip with Barristers Book Shop and Café, Chelsea Station Restaurant, South Royalton Market, 5 Olde Bistro, a village square and a thrift shop.

For those who need a break from the office, Killington Ski Resort is a 45-minute drive.
