Business publication spotlights new industry park
A regional business publication has published an article and a photograph of a new industry park, which is a joint venture of both Seneca and Oconee County. And those city and county leaders in charge of developing Seneca Rail Site are pleased by the attention the project has drawn in the current GSA Business publication. Richard Blackwell, for example, says a degree of excitement abounds because the Rail Site building and property on Shiloh Road lends itself to rail transport of manufactured goods to the Inland Port at Greer and then, by rail again, to the Charleston Harbor. The Seneca Rail Site, inside what the federal government considers an “economically distressed area,” qualifies for new market tax credits for interested developers. And the GSA Business publication draws a parallel to Greenville’s success in applying new market tax credits to that city’s downtown re-development.
