Property Description

The Advanced Manufacturing District of Genesee County is in the heart of Genesee County, Michigan, a vibrant community within the 11-county Detroit Region. The area boasts a rich manufacturing heritage, a ready workforce, and all the assets an industrial user requires. The site includes approximately 1,009 contiguous acres and direct access to a water line to Lake Huron currently permitted at 85 million gallons per day (MGD). The site offers proximity to many transportation assets, including:

  • Rail (CSX and CN)
  • North, South, East, and West Interstates (I-75 and I-69)
  • Air (Bishop International Airport & Detroit Metropolitan Airport)

The Mundy Township Mega Site is currently primarily used for agricultural purposes. However, this flat greenfield is primed for development and the local municipality has committed to rezoning through an expedited, fast-track process.

In 2023, the site underwent a comprehensive due diligence review through the VIP program, including a detailed site condition analysis, comprehensive information on utility providers and capacity, and a comprehensive report on site details (full report in the document library below).
