‘Transformational’ logistics park project kicks off in Macon County

TUSKEGEE, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey joined leaders of Farpoint Development and the Macon County Economic Development Authority at an event today to mark the launch of an ambitious project to build the Regional East Alabama Logistics (REAL) Park, which aims to supercharge economic growth in the Tuskegee region.

The groundbreaking ceremony comes as Farpoint begins construction on the first structure — an expandable, 169,000-square-foot spec building — in REAL Park, located on 683 acres off Exit 42 on Interstate 85 in Macon County.

Investment in the first phase of the project is approximately $20 million.

“I’m tremendously excited by the transformational potential that the Regional East Alabama Logistics Park represents for rural Macon County, and the elevating opportunities it can create for the hard-working citizens of the Tuskegee area,” Governor Ivey said.
