Global TransPark Expanding With Spec Building

The Global TransPark says it will soon break ground on a new spec building.

The 100,000 square-foot building will be intended for light manufacturing, warehousing or distribution.

GTP says the new spec building will be one of three planned structures on a 35-acre site on Rouse Road, near the new rail spur.

The TransPark says it's now actively looking for tenants.

Meanwhile, GTP says grading and drainage work on that 5.8-mile rail spur is 70% complete. The spur, which will serve the new Spirit AeroSystems plant, is slated to be completed by the end of the year.

    Oh, I remember the good ole days when there was actually money in state coffers to pay for this....I remember when you actually had a customer for the building before it even was built...ohhhh, the good ole days when stopped supporting the atomic airplane since it could not fly...

    More wasted tax dollars. I never understood this wasteful place when I moved to Kinston in 1999 and still don't get its purpose or usefulness 12 plus years later.

    Little bit to late to just pull the plug on a place that has already attracted national and international attention. How would it look if it was just "shut down" after Spirit AeroSystems located there.

      Then Sell it to the highest bidder, even if it's 5 bucks. Give them a tax break for 5 years, but the bottom line is that's it out from under the State. I would be a great politician because I have.......common sense. Something most of our top elected people do not have.....They however do have alot of greed

        And while we are selling, lets put the new Marc Basnight pier on the Market. It will never turn a dollar due to the saleries of the State employees who work there.......By the way you know it alls....who is gonna fish on it from Nov. til March. NOBODY!!!!! And when it's Blazing Hot in July and August, hardly anybody. Sell it Bev, before a storm destroys it. I will start the bidding, I'll give you 20 bucks for it.

    we need to change the way the state spends our money. Every project for the next year should be voted on by the taxpayers if it is over 10 million dollars. the schools should be privatized. I know you would see great results in the budgetand the schools. some mad politicians and governor

    I swear I hear something that sounds like a giant vacuum cleaner every time I go to Kinston.

    If the state has potential clients with concrete plans to build there and hire people then by all means provide incentives. Otherwise, stop wasting our tax dollars on a doomed project.
