What is ‘Project Twister’ and why could it be a big deal for Chesterfield County?
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – Chesterfield Economic Development has submitted plans for a four-warehouse distribution center and office development that would add more than 1 million square feet of industrial space to Bermuda Hundred Road between Meadowville Technology Park and the Honeywell, Philip Morris and DuPont campuses.
Codenamed “Project Twister,” the development will sit on 130 acres at a parcel known as the Keck Site. A trust in the name of Thomas S. Winston III owns the land, according to Chesterfield County records. It’s currently vacant and assessed at $929,000.
“It’s a site that has been in our industrial site base for years,” Chesterfield Economic Development Assistant Director Garrett Hart said of the Keck property. “It’s part of our regularly promoted sites for industrial development.”
