Coldstorage Facility

Postby skinzfan23 » Tue Feb 24, 2015 9:42 am

Council OKs TIF for coldstorage facility

The project will be built on vacant ground at the northwest corner of Veterans Memorial Highway and South 24th Street. Construction could start this spring and would create 50 jobs initially when completed in a year, according to Mike Dellinger, an economic development official for the Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce.
The project will involve a 155,000-square-foot cold-storage structure on 51 acres offering warehousing and distribution support to major food processors in the area, Dellinger said
Part of the building could be up to 135 feet in height, Dellinger said. Equipment, such as air conditioning units, could be placed on top of that so long as the total height doesn’t exceed 150 feet, he added.

They are currently pouring a 10" thick insulated slab. The concrete subcontractor, JR Barger, has been taking drone videos of the process. Here is a recent one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAcJLE1EHtE
Thinking there's not a whole lot to say anymore now that people listen & she has to make sense.

Drove by this past weekend. It appears that there is no activity going on for construction. Only the footings that were poured last fall. Wonder if this project is still in the works.

I have been wondering the same thing, I noticed a while back they took the construction office trailer from the site, haven't seen anything going on there in a while.

From a Nonpareil article today:

A cold-storage facility along Veterans Memorial Highway could start construction in November, Walsh said.
