Project Location – Research Boulevard/Areva Drive, Lanesville, Indiana
Public Incentive – Indiana Income Tax Credit- $2 million and $200,000 for Job Training from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. Local support from the Harrison County Economic Development Corporation.
Project Description– The I-64 Interchange at Lanesville was constructed in 1974 when the Interstate was completed to St. Louis. After many years without adequate infrastructure to attract business growth, the Harrison County Regional Sewer District and the Town of Lanesville began cooperating to extend wastewater service to the interchange area. When Areva Pharmaceutical contacted the Economic Development Corp. about sites, we were able to obtain loan funds from the county to construct a building and provide the infrastructure to their site. This is the beginning of the Lanesville Business Park.

Economic Development Corp participation: The property was purchased from the ED Corporation at a negotiated price that was very competitive given the location. The Corporation also assisted with the Site Development planning and permitting.
Project Description: The project, which includes a 55,000-square-foot assisted living facility and skilled nursing center
will bring about 110 jobs to the county, 65 percent of which will be full time. The main building will house 55 skilled nursing beds and 35 assisted living beds.
Ten duplex villas will have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an enclosed garage. A small clubhouse will be built near the villas.
In 2010, the Harrison County EDC borrowed $1.6 million from Harrison County government to complete the infrastructure — roads, water, storm drainage and sewage — for the large undeveloped area between the Walmart Supercenter and Harrison County Hospital. After the change of ownership of a large portion of the property, the ED Corporation purchased the property and made it available to Trilogy for this project.
