WHITELAND — A developer is moving ahead with plans for a nearly 1 million square-foot warehouse in suburban Indianapolis.

The site was formerly part of Whiteland Orchard and has been vacant for years, Gabehart said. At least 20 acres (8.1 hectares) are wetlands that will be eventually be turned into a park area.
The developer plans to spend $44.7 million on warehouse construction and infrastructure improvements, plus $10 million on logistics equipment for the building, the Indianapolis Business Journal reported.
