CAEDA and other Casper Groups bring new Speculative Building to our community

(Casper, Wyo.) – Surrounded by 600 feet of power lines, 400 feet of sewer lines, and 30 feet of water lines, the Casper Area Economic Development Alliance (CAEDA) Speculative Building opened its doors Wednesday. Located in Bar Nunn, Wyoming, the new structure offers 30,000 square feet and is expandable to 60,000 square feet. The group of board members cut the ribbon to welcome the newest facility to the Natrona County community.

Bill Edwards, President & CEO at CAEDA commented, “This building gives companies and businesses a place to land while they wait for another structure to be built.” “This building provides a wide array of options for businesses. It is sort of a last option for them until a new building can be constructed. It not only opens up a place for businesses inside the building, but we installed power lines, water, sewage to make that available for future businesses in the area,” said Edwards. CAEDA, the Economic Development Joint Powers Board, Granite Peak Development, the Town of Bar Nunn, and the Wyoming Business Council formed the partnership in order to acquire the five acres of land for the project, construct the building and install the infrastructures.

Casper Mayor Charlie Powell attended the ribbon cutting and commented, “Hopefully this building will help to put us in a position to bring more companies and businesses to Casper.” The project had been discussed by CAEDA and other groups for the past twenty years, according to CAEDA Chairman Chris Lorenzen.

This is a building of last resort, if we risk losing a client, we can offer this building for their use as a temporary fix. I am excited for it.” As board members stood in the wide open building, Bill Edwards commented, “This is going to be a great asset to our community.” [image: Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 8.34.25 AM.png] [image: Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 8.34.42 AM.png] [image: Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 8.34.50 AM.png] #oilcity #caeda #sponsored
