The company has hired the prestigious property management firm of Jones, Long, Lasalle to market the property. It is a 1, 600- acre campus with rail, bio-mass, gas, electric, significant water resources and a wastewater facility. There are not many rail-served sites in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina. It is almost a mega site within itself. An open house with representatives of food and beverage industries will be held between December 6th and 8th of this year.
