Business briefs: Commissioners table industrial building proposal


This entry has been updated to correct a reporting error.

HANCOCK COUNTY — The Hancock County Commissioners tabled a developer’s request to rezone land needed for three proposed industrial buildings totaling nearly 2.3 million square feet.

Indianapolis-based GDI Holdings LLC is pursuing a rezone from an agricultural designation to an industrial business park one on nearly 200 acres at the northwest corner of County Roads 300N and 300W. The firm is eyeing the site for two buildings over 900,000 square feet and one nearly 450,000 square feet. The proposed developments are speculative, meaning without occupants yet secured.

A majority of Hancock County Plan Commission members voted in June to send the rezone request to the county commissioners with an unfavorable recommendation. While the county’s comprehensive plan recommends industrial activities in that area, commission members expressed concerns that the development would contribute to what officials have been describing as an outpacing of public safety and infrastructure needs.
