[ARCHIVED] Barton Business Park

Allegany County has constructed a 40,000-square foot shell building on 27.5 acres in the Barton Business Park.

Allegany County has constructed a 40,000-square foot shell building on 27.5 acres in the Barton Business Park. The primary objective is the creation of jobs according to Allegany County Department of Economic and Community Development Acting Director Jeffrey S. Barclay.   This building was constructed to appeal to a light manufacturer. It is now completed and is being shown to prospective tenants. Renting as well as well as leasing to buy are options for this property. Allegany County lacks available space, especially new space, in the 40,000 to 50,000 square foot range. This building is expandable to 80,000-square feet.


The speculative building approach is a standard one for Allegany County and similar entities. This construction was funded by the county. Private developers will not take the financial risks involved to build speculative industrial buildings in our marketplace. Tenants are attracted to properties such as this shell building because all significant obstacles are handled. Electricity as well as water and sewer systems are installed and ready for use. All permits, most notably the difficult to secure ones from the Maryland Department of the Environment, are in place. The building is ready for immediate occupancy. Time can be critical to potential tenants and prospective businesses will be able to locate here and start operations quickly. Barclay may be contacted at 301-777-5967, 800-555-4080, and jbarclay@alleganygov.org. The website for the Allegany County Department of Economic & Community Development is www.alleganyworks.org.
