A Latrobe development firm has purchased a 5.8-acre parcel in the Westmoreland County Airpark in Unity for the construction of a 75,000-square-foot flexible warehouse, the Westmoreland County Industrial Development Authority said Thursday.
EFR Limited Partnership intends to start construction of the 22-foot-high metal multi-tenant warehouse this spring and complete it by late fall, the industrial development corporation said. The building will be marketed to warehouse and light industrial users.
P. Richard Ridilla, who controls the entity, could not be reached for comment.
EFR has built several buildings at the Air Park along Route 981 near Arnold Palmer Regional Airport.
Terms of the sale were not revealed. Jason Rigone, executive director of the industrial development agency, said the closing on the property is scheduled for Friday.
The Unity Township Planning Commission on Tuesday recommended preliminary approval of the site plan for the project, but rejected a request from Shawn Ulery of Latrobe, the architect on the project, for final approval because of outstanding issues with the plan that must be resolved.
The township supervisors will vote on the recommendations made by the planning commission.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
