In an effort to help spark Economic Development, York County leaders are building a new ‘speculative’ building in Rock Hill.

The move, which is designed to attract new businesses, will be built as an empty shell in the Antrim business Park on Dave Lyle Blvd, York County Economic Development Director Mark Fairs told County Council last night, funding for such a project comes from licensing fees from utilities that his organization has been able to reinvest into roads and infrastructure.

Faris also touted the idea of ‘certified’ sites,  that are sites that are ‘prequalified’ for service and can expedite the process of a new businesses coming to York County. Faris on what the ‘certified’ sites actually mean…

Previous certified sites include properties in the East York Industrial Park and Westgate Industrial Park. The new site Faris mentioned Monday will be built along the road going towards the Harley Davidson dealership adjacent to I-77.
