This publicly-owned site represents one of the few available megasites on the East Coast. With more than 1,000 acres, the Sussex Megasite represents a unique opportunity for major industrial facilities needing to draw from a labor force of more than one million. The site is conveniently located at proximity to I-95, I-295, I-85, and Route 460. It is also well positioned to access rail, seaport and airport infrastructure, guaranteeing rapid and efficient shipments of merchandise.
