Warsaw Tech Park expands to phase 2
The Warsaw Tech Park is expanding, according to a Nov. 5 statement from Kosciusko Economic Development Corp.
“Warsaw Tech Park is an example of the public-private partnerships that can propel our community forward,” said Warsaw Mayor Joseph M. Thallemer in the statement, “We commend everyone who has contributed toward this project, celebrate our success to-date, and look forward to continued development at this ‘best-in-class’ business park.”
Warsaw Tech Park is a multi-phase, shovel ready business park that offers flexible lot sizes, underground utilities, offsite retention, and stoplight access to U.S. Highway 30. It is also a certified technology park by the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
Phase I of the park opened in 2015 with nearly 40 acres offering flexible lot sizes, offsite retention, underground utilities, and stoplight access to US Highway 30. Phase II, which will open in 2019, will add more than 50.
“Our team at West Hill Development has long been committed to promoting business growth in the Warsaw area,” West Hill Development partner Dan Robinson said in the statement. “Our decision to move ahead with our second shell building at the Warsaw Tech Park illustrates our confidence in Warsaw as a place to do business.”
West Hill Development is beginning construction on a 50,000+ square foot shell building that will be available in spring 2019. Building specifications include precast concrete walls, 24’ to 27’ clear height, and 50’ x 75’ column spacing.
Construction of this shell building follows development of a previous shell building now leased to Patrick Industries. Other companies located in the Warsaw Tech Park are Banner Medical and Winona PVD Coatings. These companies have committed to creating or retaining approximately 300 jobs and investing more than $40 million in buildings and equipment.
“These announcements demonstrate our focus toward continuously improving Warsaw and Kosciusko County to welcome new people and businesses,” said KEDCo CEO Alan Tio. “We are home to globally competitive agribusiness and medical device industries, nationally known quality of life amenities, and a workforce that would be hard to find elsewhere.”
