RICHLAND, Wash.--Location, location, location. And according to city of Richland Deputy City Manager, Bill King, Horn Rapids Business Center has a great location.
Last year, the city sold more than eight acres worth $400,000 dollars to various companies. King said available lots for phase one of the center are close to selling out. And if and when they do, whatever money is made will be set aside for another project.
"That's bringing some pretty good revenue," said King. Again, a lot of that will be reinvested as we expand into the later phases of the project."
What's creating a good impression amongst potential businesses are new design and landscape standards for the center. So far, several pending offers from small local businesses have been received.
There has even been discussion involving Washington State University (WSU) maybe becoming a tenant at the Horn Rapids Business Center.
