Berry Hill Regional Mega Park
This is a 3,500 -acre industrial park located between Eden and Danville, VA. The anticipated job creation ranges from 2,500-7,500 jobs. One prospect has signed a purchase agreement and another is predicted to do so by January of 2017. Eden will supply the water and sewer to the park as part of a regional joint agreement.
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.
