The Fort Cherry Development District will soon be home to development sites in northern Washington County, specifically Robinson Township. The development will make immediate use of the Southern Beltway, PA-576, also sometimes referred to the “Energy Corridor” as it provides ease of access to landmarks including Pittsburgh International Airport, the Shell Cracker Plant in Beaver County and Interstate 79 in Washington County making them accessible within minutes of travel.
The Fort Cherry Development District will consist of an estimated 6 million square feet of industrial, flex, office and ancillary commercial (e.g. neighborhood retail, lodging, restaurants) space that is projected to generate over $542,400,000.00 in private investment. The development plan includes sites up to 100 acres that can accommodate buildings from 20,000 to 1.5 million square feet. Phase 1 of the Development is slated to begin in 2022 and will accommodate three pad-ready development sites.
Imperial Land Corporation has already invested $205,000.00 to upsize sewer line extensions along a major portion of Noblestown Road to accommodate future development in the area and also donated land for the construction of the Midway Sewer Authority Treatment Facility.
