WHITELAND, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — The Mohr Logistics Park in Whiteland continues to grow.

Inside INdiana Business’ partners at the Daily Journal report the Whiteland Town Council has approved an annexation plan that will provide more than 150 acres of land for the park.

Dallas-based Mohr Capital is in the process of building out the logistics park. The company last month completed construction on a 1 million-square-foot facility for Ohio-based Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. (NYSE: CTB).

Earlier this week, Mohr broke ground on a nearly 830,000-square-foot speculative building, with plans to break ground on another 1 million-square-foot building within the next two months.

The Daily Journal reports the company received the unanimous approval from the council after committing to conducting a traffic study, as well as creating a buffer between the Bright Farms property and nearby residences. The move follows concerns of traffic issues and noise and light pollution voiced by area residents.

When complete, Mohr Capital says the logistics park will span 475 acres and include more than 7 million square feet of Class A industrial space.
