Mega Site gets new logo

September 08 2015

Triad Business Journal

The Randolph County Economic Development Corp. today posted the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite's new logo on Twitter, as efforts are heating up to begin design work for a multimillion water and sewer project that could make the site more appealing to an automaker.

County officials are hoping to lure an automaker or other large manufacturer to the site, which sits near Liberty on 1,400 acres, with most of that land under option. The site is competing not only with three others in North Carolina but also sites in other states, including South Carolina, which recently won Volvo's first North American plant.

In an effort to make the site more shovel-ready for potential manufacturers, the city of Greensboro has awarded HDR Engineering Inc. of the Carolinas a nearly $2.3 million contract for design phase services to extend water and sewer utilities to the site.

The design phase and environmental assessment are expected to take 12 months. The work is part of a larger $22.5 million water and sewer project for the megasite.

While the $2.3 million for design work is coming from the city's water and sewer extension fund balance, city leaders hope additional partners — including the Golden Leaf Foundation, which has pledged $50 million toward infrastructure and work force development to the first site that lands the state an automaker — will pay for the balance of the project.

Other sites also competing for that Golden Leaf money include: a 1,818-acre Chatham-Siler City Advanced Manufacturing Site, owned by Tim Booras and D.H. Griffin Sr.; a Kingsboro megasite in Edgecombe County that has amassed 1,500 acres either under option or purchased; and a site in Moncure, a small community in southeastern Chatham County, adjacent to Lee and Wake counties.
