Plan Commission moves ahead with 'shell' building

PLYMOUTH - With flood plain issues nearly out of the way the proposed "shell" building on Plymouth's northwest side continues to leap hurdles.
The Plymouth Plan Commission voted to allow certain plat changes on the land proposed for the structure at the corner of Pioneer and Commerce just north of U.S. 30 and near 7B Road. The land is owned by the Plymouth Industrial Development Corporation (PIDCO).

Garamond Construction and Fanning Engineering are partnering with the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation and PIDCO to build the structure - a "move in now" facility to attract new businesses that may not be interested or able to buy and build before making a move.

The demand for move in ready structures with infrastructure in place is great and communities with vacant buildings with the right infrastructure have been able to attract businesses with an immediate need of a home.

The developers came before the Plan Commission to request that the land be re-platted to reduce a 75 foot setback to 50 feet and to allow a 120 foot access point to the property on the northeast side.
