Timber processing, an industrial park, a distribution center, or something else?

There is a lot to consider when preparing a site for development, and that begins with deciding what the most practical or advantageous use would be. Such is the case for a 5,400 acre site outside Inglis owned by Duke Energy that was formerly proposed for a nuclear power plant.

The North Carolina-based utility wrapped up its Site Readiness Program exercise for the location with a presentation detailing an analysis and potential uses of the site. Global Location Strategies analyzed a variety of factors, such as existing infrastructure, permitting challenges, workforce and other considerations in preparing a final report. Heidt Design focused on wetland and related environmental impact issues in how road networks and use of the property would be best situated.

The NCBDC, Duke and stakeholders will take the data and ultimately use it to market to potential suitable industry.

Here’s the report:
