For the sixth time since the land first went for sale in April, the Arizona State Land Department postponed the auction for two parcels that have been eyed by Samsung in a national search for a U.S. semiconductor manufacturing plant.
The two parcels of land, one in Goodyear and one in Queen Creek, are both managed by the Arizona State Land Department, and can only be sold at auction. Both sites had been rezoned earlier this year to allow manufacturing uses consistent with Samsung’s plans for its $17 billion planned facility. The Arizona sites, along with a site in upstate New York and sites in the Austin metro are all in the running for the plant.
