The Western Reserve Port Authority's February board meeting marked a significant milestone for the City of Warren and the City of Warren School Board as they announced the finalization of an agreement with West Warren Acquisition to build the West Warren Industrial Park.

The 86-acre industrial park will be developed in the area as Westlawn, encompassing the former Western Reserve school and Deemer Park. 

The West Warren Industrial Park will offer state of the art class A manufacturing and warehouse space. The key location is approximately 86 acres owned by City of Warren and Warren City schools, and it has the competitive advantage of being within three miles of key state routes and highways, downtown Warren, and the site is nearly shovel-ready. 

The project was catalyzed through recent investments in the area, including Ultium Cells, Foxxconn, TJX, and Intel's project in Columbus.

The West Warren Industrial Park is expected to bring new jobs and opportunities to the region, further contributing to the growth of the economy. 

Construction for the West Warren Industrial Park is expected to begin soon.
