ZULLINGER, Pa. - Having reached the 10-year anniversary of Wharf Road Industrial Park's creation, the Waynesboro Industrial Development Corp. (WIDC) is exercising its right under the original agreement to purchase the remaining lots at a discount.
Four lots totaling 54.1 acres remain for sale by WIDC in the 12-lot park, which is comprised of 121 acres of the former Bromley orchard. WIDC will purchase those lots from Michaels Development Corp. and continue to market them, Carlene Willhide said.
Willhide, as executive director of the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce, serves as the industrial park's administrator.
The lots are being sold for a maximum price of $30,000 per acre, Realtor Matt Gunder said.
Willhide said the price and location are strong selling points for the park.
"It's close to Interstate 81," she said. "That, to me, is a no-brainer for industry."
CAM Superline Inc. operates in the industrial park. Greens Concrete has a lot under construction and Pro-Tube moved into a spec building originally constructed by the Franklin County (Pa.) Area Development Corp.
