Officials in Hobart are planning to transform a site on the city’s south side into a new business park. The Post-Tribune reports the developer plans to invest $10 million to turn a building into a small business warehouse incubator that could house about 125 tenants.
The Hobart Plan Commission has given a recommendation to the Hobart City Council to rezone the 14-acre property as a planned business park, according to the publication. Developer John Sapp said the property would mostly be used by tenants to rent warehouse space, though office space would also be available.
“Employees would go to the warehouse, perhaps once a month, get their parts and leave,” said Sapp. “There will be no consumers, just products on pallets.”
A timeline for the project was not given. The publication reports the proposal must still go through a review process before any approvals are awarded.
