Dothan officials launch project to build expandable spec building

DOTHAN, Alabama — Officials in Dothan have formally kicked off a project to build a 100,000-square-foot speculative building in the Sam Houston Industrial Park to better prepare the Southeast Alabama city for industrial prospects.

The building will be located on a 41-acre site called Lot 3 in the platted industrial park at 102 Austin Court. Construction on the new building is scheduled for completion in Fall 2022.

Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce, said having available building for prospects is needed to continue to spur economic development. Studies indicate that 85% of companies with projects are seeking existing buildings as opposed to greenfield development.

“The availability of quality-sized buildings in Alabama needs to be expanded, so seeing the Dothan-Houston County area spearhead this new addition to the state’s building inventory is a big enhancement to continue Alabama’s growth in the industrial development arena,” Secretary Canfield said.
