Fourth site in state to receive designation
GLASGOW, Ky. (March 20, 2015) — Lit. Gov. Crit Luallen today joined community leaders to announce that an industrial site in Glasgow will be officially certified under Kentucky’s new Build-Ready program.
Build-Ready, launched by the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development last year, is a cost-effective way for communities to distinguish their list of available industrial sites to meet the needs of today’s site selectors.
The 24-acre site is located in the Highland Glen Industrial Park. Within the park also is an 80,000-s.f. spec building—a move-in ready building—built to the exact same specification as the Build-Ready site that will be completed this spring. This offers potential companies two different options: the super-fast track of locating in an existing building or the flexibility of building their own facility on the customizable Build Ready site.
This is the fourth site in the commonwealth to be certified as Build-Ready. Two sites in Bowling Green and one in Henderson received the certification last year.
