Why do Cabarrus County and its communities along Interstate 85 have more than 3 million square feet in speculative industrial space proposed or ready for tenants?
The reasons range from location — the Interstate 85 corridor is more widely known for industrial operations than Interstate 77 — to incentives that reward developers for building as well as bringing jobs.
Cabarrus, along with at least two of its cities, Concord and Kannapolis, have incentive programs that encourage developers to build speculative industrial space. Most of York County’s incentives are based only on bringing jobs.
The Board of Directors of the Cabarrus County Economic Development Corporation announced the appointment of Robert (Robby) J. Carney, Jr. as Executive Director effective August 1st.
