Developer buys parcel in Unity Airpark

Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

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.
