Starpointe awarded $1.5M state grant

  • February 13, 2013

Starpointe Business Park has been awarded a $1.5 million state grant for expansion of parcel sizes in the park’s newest phase.

The grant, announced Tuesday by state Sen. Tim Solobay D-Canonsburg and state Rep. Jesse White, D-Cecil. will go toward the $13.5 million Phase 1B, is to be used to create larger parcels than in the first phase of the development.

Sitting atop former mine property, the 1,100-acre Starpointe park is the largest “brownfield” redevelopment project in southwestern Pennsylvania and is expected to provide as many as 6,000 jobs upon completion.

Starpointe’s Phase 1B will create larger parcels covering from 10 to 39 acres. The first 10-acre parcel is the site of a 68,000-square-foot manufacturing facility for Hormann Flexon, a German based manufacturer of commercial and industrial garage doors.

The company began construction last summer, and expects to complete the first phase of a planned three-phase plant later this year.
