WILLMAR—The possible construction of a massive development project in the Willmar Industrial Park moved closer to fruition on Wednesday, with the Willmar Planning Commission recommending the city sell more than 30 acres of land to RDC National Inc.
RDC National is working on behalf of an end user—not yet identified publicly—to construct an over $25 million logistics facility in the Industrial Park’s Fourth Addition, located between Willmar Avenue and Trott Avenue Southwest on the west side of Kandiyohi County Road 5.
“We are excited about the opportunity to have a major logistics project here,” said Aaron Backman, executive director of the Kandiyohi County and city of Willmar Economic Development Commission. The EDC has been working with RDC National for nearly five months.
The proposed project would include the construction of a 217,000-square-foot building plus parking for 56 long trailers and 389 vehicles. There could also be a future maintenance structure of around 9,000 to 10,000 square feet built on the site. The operation would run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Backman said.
