Building Summary


  • Mill Site – 560± Acres
  • Adjacent Property – 451± Acres
  • Total – 1,011± Acres
  • Approximately 80± acres is under agreement for construction of an Oriented Strand Board (OSB) plant.
  • A 75 MW solar installation is programmed for roughly 358± acres.
  • Numerous rail spurs throughout the site serving various buildings, etc. These spurs are privately owned but all connect to the CSX Rail line.
  • The Mill Site and the Mill itself have been processed through the federal RCRA closure process and are ready for use.


  • While the site holds over 1.4 million square feet of structures, demolition of several “industry specific” structures will commence in Q2 2024 with roughly 1 million square feet of buildings remaining.
  • The remaining buildings will have all equipment and fixtures related to their prior use in the paper making industry removed. Spaces will be cleaned and made ready for new usage with utilities (water, sewer, power, natural gas) delivered to the space and ready for distribution. It is anticipated that building spaces will be ready for delivery to new occupants in late 2024 to early 2025 with accelerated delivery possible if desired.
  • Specific requirements for power can be accommodated, as well as ample process water along with wastewater treatment and disposal, utilizing the on-site wastewater treatment plant.
  • The primary Mill Building consists of 910,825± square feet of available space. The building will be subdivided with various unit sizes and unit combinations possible. The first floor footprint of the Mill Building is approximately 550,900± square feet in size. The layout with existing natural subdivisions is shown here.
  • Much of the Mill Building has second floor areas that were utilized as part of the paper making process. These second floor areas are heavily built and can support substantial floor-loading. There are several pass-throughs connecting the first and second levels which can remain or be filled.
  • There are numerous overhead cranes traversing the complex which were utilized for moving equipment and product throughout the floor space as well as between floors. The majority of these second floor areas have over 50’ clear heights. While structurally solid and completely suitable for industrial use, the potential does exist for removing the second floor deck and creating first floor space with over 70’ clear areas. The second floor layout is shown below.
