Will name of Stewartville's package center be delivered soon?
Here's a little update on the still-nameless 60,000-square-foot package center being developed in Stewartville.
It looks like the Kansas City-based Jones Development Co. will officially wrap up the purchase the 7 1/2 acres in the Schumann Business Park in the next week or two.
The City Council has already approved selling the land for $2.74 per square foot, or a total of $895,158.
While the buzz in the area has long been that the tenant of the center will be overnight delivery giant FedEx Corp., it is still unknown if that theory is correct.
Looking at the background of Jones and others involved in this project, FedEx looks like a reasonable guess about what company is behind this big economic boost for Stewartville.
When all of the land sale papers are signed later this month, the 'Who' part of this development could finally be answered.
I'll do my best to package up and deliver that news as quick as possible, hopefully faster than overnight.
