The Louisville-based companies purchase two tracts for planned developments

Jeffersonville, IN (February 22, 2024) – In January, the River Ridge Development Authority finalized two land sales with the LDG Group and Summit Construction LLC partnership, totaling 20.4 acres.

Summit Construction LLC, based out of Louisville, KY, is a leader in Commercial and industrial construction projects. The company will develop industrial buildings on each of the sites for a total of approximately 300,000-square feet of industrial space.

Summit will begin site work by mid-year. Both buildings should be completed in 2025.

“Summit Construction is excited to continue our relationship with the River Ridge team as we construct two new industrial buildings within the Commerce Center,” said Jeff Robinson, President.  “Providing excellent service to our customers is a proud tradition here at Summit, and our facilities in River Ridge will allow us to continue this performance in a growing location.”

“It’s great to have such an experienced developer continue making a major impact at River Ridge and reinforcing what we already know – this is a great place to do business,” said Jerry Acy, Executive Director of the River Ridge Development Authority.  “Summit Construction has a track record of success and recognizes the value we offer here in Southern Indiana. We are pleased with their continued investment in River Ridge.”
