The Great Plains Industrial Park (GPIP) covers 13,951 acres and offers:
- Large single-owner tracts – you name the size!
- 33 miles of rail connected to the Union Pacific
- Water and waste water plants already in operation
- Kansas’ lowest electric rates through Westar Energy
- Just 90 miles north of the Port of Catoosa, by rail
- Nearby fiber optics
Great Plains is one of the only places in the country that truly offers LARGE ACREAGE. Needing 200 acres? Or maybe 500 acres? How about finding 1,000 acres – without having to cross roads, boundaries or negotiate with multiple property owners? Need environmental permitting that causes industrial park headaches inside city limits? The Great Plains Industrial Park offers everything an industrial operation could want, including one of the top-rated state departments of commerce in the nation to help make it all come together.
Great Plains is a property that was made available by the United States Army, due to the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC) 2005. The initial transfer of 600 environmentally-clean acres occurred in February 2010, and a second parcel of 6,200 acres was transferred in August 2012.
Of the industrial park’s total acreage, less than 12 percent has been determined contaminated (by a joint concurrence of the EPA, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and the US Army). The large uncontaminated acreage is due to the fact that extremely large buffer zones were created around all production and storage areas. Today those zones offer thousands of acres of ready-to-build brownfields.
BEST YET, unlike other brownfield sites, the Great Plains Industrial Park comes with a FOREVER-AFTER warranty from the United States government in the form of a deed covenant. Under CERCLA 120(h) there is a provision that the United States will return to perform any additional response action that may be required in the future, regardless of the owner and how far out the need.
Great Plains offers the perfect location for many reasons.
