Hundreds of jobs could be coming soon, as Buckeye City Council approved an Economic Development Agreement with CRE/LGE Design Build to facilitate a major industrial facility.
According to agenda information, 367 construction jobs will build the $60 million facility, with “total economic output resulting from construction of this facility estimated at $90.4 million.”
This “speculative” project will be an 860,000-square-foot facility at the northwest corner of Miller Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road, next to the Five Below facility. Since this is a speculative project, a tenant has not been named, but LGE Design Build and the city are confident that there will be a tenant ready to move in by the time the project is complete.
