JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (August 25, 2023)
America Place is a commercial real estate firm with a focus on developing and managing quality warehouse and office space in Jeffersonville, IN. Since the start of the company in 1985, America Place has doubled its portfolio to a total of 2.3 million square feet. However, the history of America Place actually began long before 1985.
During World War II, the Government had a need for large amounts of storage space. They decided to build new facilities at the Quartermaster Depot in Jeffersonville, Indiana, which had been in existence since prior to the Civil War. These new buildings were expertly constructed so they could be used for a multitude of purposes. Being ‘government issued’ they also were built to be blast-proof, still evident today with their nearly impenetrable structure. The buildings, totaling more than 1,150,000 square feet, were used as needed, for everything from supply storage to housing prisoners of war.
As peace prevailed, the government no longer had use for the buildings and sold them in 1960 to Joseph E. Seagrams and Sons, Inc. The entire site was used to house and age their barrels. Jeffersonville Public Warehouse d/b/a America Place began its life in 1985 when James Karp purchased the remaining 26 buildings containing almost 1,000,000 square feet on 68 acres from Seagrams. From the start America Place, with its 8” thick brick walls and open-span steel girders, has been an attractive place for businesses to locate.
America Place has a proud history of providing quality buildings at competitive rates. Several of the business park units are leased to tenants that have been with us from the very beginning, and with units varying in square footage, 5,000-40,000 Sqft, we can continue to work with our tenants as they grow. As such, the park has been an “incubator” for many companies that have grown from small organizations to international companies, such as Vericast and Atlantic Bingo Supply.
The Business Park is currently home to over 40 tenants, employing almost 1,000 people. These tenants represent businesses ranging from woodworking to window dressing, and design to distribution. We work with each one to customize the space to accommodate their needs. America Place offers climate controlled (office) environments, high amperage manufacturing and storage/distribution space; there truly is something for everyone at the America Place Business Park.
Due to the success of the Business Park, America Place purchased 11 acres of property from River Ridge in 2012 with hopes to create a larger campus. By 2013, America Place’s first warehouse of 150,000 square feet was complete. The demand for manufacturing and warehouse space of this size was so evident that America Place purchased an additional 50 acres to create what is now known as the Winner’s Circle campus.
Since the original purchase in 2012 America Place has become the largest landowner in River Ridge with more than 250 acres. The Winner’s Circle, which was completed in 2022, holds six warehouses ranging in size from 150,000 – 420,000 square feet. Throughout River Ridge, America Place has also developed two office buildings and currently holds 85 acres of available space for development.
America Place at River Ridge is currently home to 10 tenants, employing more than 1,500 people. These tenants represent businesses ranging from pharmaceutical services to manufacturing to warehousing to distribution. Each building was developed with the best technology of its time and each office has been customized to each tenant’s needs.
