CITY ADMINISTRATOR TONY Graff walked the council through the basics of the Project Lego site plan Tuesday before the council approved it.
While city hall has yet to tell who is spending $70 million to build a 1.6 million square foot facility at the RidgePort Logistics Center, city officials are saying the new tenant is a week away from starting construction.

On Tuesday, the Wilmington City Council approved amendments to RidgePort's annexation and development agreements, and the site plans for the "Project Lego" facility and a new travel plaza, as recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission. City officials who have been working on the project were required to agree to confidentiality.

Oakbrook Terrace-based Ledcor Construction, which has been involved in the phase one subdivision improvements, has been selected as the contractor to build the Project Lego facility.

"It's a matter of the lease being finalized and signed, which we're hoping is any day now; then we will be able to begin," said Jennifer Wagner, Ridge Property Trust director of investment services.

The contractor could mobilize as early as next week, Mayor Marty Orr added.

The council took other action to spur development in the logistics park, including amending its annexation and development agreements to reflect the current model for ownership and construction. Read more about the project, and learn when we can expect the company's identity to be revealed, in the Wednesday, April 23, 2014 print and online editions of The Free Press Advocate.
