WINSLOW, ARIZ. — Atlas Global Development Group has released plans for I-40 TradePort Winslow, a 3,000-acre manufacturing and logistics park in Winslow, approximately 57 miles southeast of Flagstaff, Arizona.
The project will kick off the development of the I-40 TradePort Corridor, a planned 805-mile network of clean-energy logistics hubs. According to Atlas Global, the project aims to circumvent the increasingly slow supply chain performance of the Inland Empire in Southern California, and to address future negative impacts to the national supply chain.
The park will seek tenants in industries such as advanced manufacturing, heavy manufacturing, logistics, transportation, manufactured wood products, renewable energy production and storage, semiconductor suppliers and aerospace. The site sits at the nexus of a BNSF Railroad line, the Winslow-Lindberg Regional Airport and Interstate 40.
The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded a $974,000 grant to the project. Atlas Global plans to use the funds to support planning, studies and analysis for the project’s development, as well as primary engineering and design work.
“These rural Arizona communities have long been overlooked, despite their incredible potential as central and essential pieces to the supply chain logistics puzzle,” says Daniel Lupien, managing director of Atlas Global Development Group. “The RIA grant is the first step toward revitalizing these communities and bringing tremendous opportunities to Kingman, Winslow and the vital Arizona towns that are the heartbeat of the [project].”
The I40TPC Winslow is supported by Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs, Arizona Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema, Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, Mohave County, Coconino County and the city of Winslow, as well as the Hopi Tribe and Navajo Nation. According to Atlas Global, the buy-in of the Native peoples who inhabit the land in and near the project was essential to Atlas Global Development Group’s plan for the Corridor’s development.
Anthony Lydon and Bill Honsaker of JLL, along with Ken Berkhoff of 1st Brokers Realty, serve as the exclusive leasing brokers for the project.
Development costs and timeline were not yet announced.
