WHITELAND — A developer is moving ahead with plans for a nearly 1 million square-foot warehouse in suburban Indianapolis.
The Whiteland Town Council recently agreed to approve rezoning for a $55 million project on a 124-acre (50-hectare) site near Interstate 65 south of Indianapolis.
The developer has a tenant lined up for the warehouse but is not ready to announce its plans, Whiteland town manager Norm Gabehart told the (Franklin) Daily Journal. The new warehouse could employ has many as 200 workers, he said.
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.
