Amelon Commerce Center

Amelon Commerce Center has multiple sites available varying from 4.6 – 30 acres. If a larger site is needed, several smaller sites can be combined to provide the needed acreage. If a smaller site is needed, lots can also be reduced. Most lots are cleared, level laying, and ready for construction. Lot 6 is pad ready. Amelon is zoned M-1 for general industrial usage; strategically located in Madison Heights; the southern part of Amherst County; and on a 4-lane connector road 2 miles from Rt. 29 bypass. Existing utilities include county water and sewer, AEP power, and multiple choices for communications (Comcast, Verizon, Lumos). A regional stormwater pond serves all sites.

Incentives for qualifying businesses can significantly reduce the price of all lots.

Current businesses in the park include manufacturing, warehousing/distribution, and professional services.
