Rome and Floyd County have several industrial parks and sites available, including the North Floyd Industrial Rail Site located at the northwest intersection of Highway 140 and Highway 53. This site is 110-acres zoned heavy industrial and is served by Norfolk Southern Railway. This prime property is only 7 miles to Interstate 75 and has access to all utilities. Certified by the Georgia Department of Economic Development as a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) property, this site is guaranteed ready for fast-track construction projects based on proactive due diligence done by the Authority to prepare the site for development.
Another area ready for development is the Berry Corporate Center on Technology Parkway, with hundreds of acres available. Zoning on this property ranges from Office Institutional (O-I) to Heavy Industrial (H-I). Years ago, Berry College reserved this property for industrial development and Suzuki Manufacturing of America and Neaton Rome, among others, have made this parkway their home. This corridor also has all utilities in place and has rail service available. The RFCDA works with Berry College to further develop sites to meet specific needs and prepare for GRAD certification.
