Site Readiness

Preparing underutilized manufacturing sites for business retention and attraction

The Port's site readiness strategy is borne out of a regional need for development-ready sites for business retention and expansion. Our region has a strong manufacturing heritage, and our manufacturing ecosystem remains strong today, but our historic manufacturing corridors that once employed thousands now lie vacant and underutilized. The Port's strategy is comprehensive, encompassing everything from acquisition to demolition and site prep to marketing the sites to qualified end-users.
