Frontier Group of Companies, a company specializing in brownfield reuse and redevelopment, purchased the Hutchings Industrial Park site from Dayton Power & Light. After sitting vacant for a half-decade, Frontier decided to buy the plant and associated land in December 2020. Now, the company plans to transform the property into a mixed-use commercial development centered around manufacturing/industrial, residential and recreational uses. Solar energy also will be a big component of the site as it transforms from an industrial brownfield into a green energy facility.
Hutchings Industrial Park is strategically situation south of Miamsburg. Large-scale industrial and commercial facility reuse, repurposing and redevelopment is at the core of what Frontier does, which made the Hutchings site appealing to the company. This will be the third property Frontier has redeveloped in Ohio, joining other projects in Mingo Junction and Conesville.
Hutchings Industrial Park will tap renewable energy sources with the installation of the Hutchings Green Energy solar farm. This 2400 megawatt solar array is expected to generate enough electricity to power residential and commercial use while producing 300 CO2e in carbon offsets.
