The Town Council on Wednesday, Oct. 19, set a public hearing on annexation of a portion of the Eastgate 540 Industrial Park for the council’s Nov. 7 meeting.
The nearly 25-acre parcel is part of a nearly 79-acre project that would add 968,000 square feet of warehouse and distribution space in buildings on Hodge Road south of I-495 once all three phases are complete. Indianapolis-based Scannell Properties is developing the park.
The project, at 2309 Hodge Road, is just west of the future I-540.
The council unanimously approved a utility allocation and infrastructure agreement for the park on Aug. 1, with no one speaking against the project at a public hearing that evening.
This first phase of the project includes two warehouse buildings and a stormwater pond. The annexation request for phase 2 is to be submitted by Oct. 1, 2018, and for phase 3 by Oct. 1, 2020.
