CSX designates Tennessee rail property a 'Select Site'

image CSX has designated the Columbia Tennessee Rail Site one of the Class I's Select Sites. Located in Columbia, Tennessee, the 225-acre site is located one hour south of Nashville and 15 miles west of Interstate 65. It is adjacent to an established industrial park and is flanked by the Tennessee Southern Railroad and U.S. Highway 43. CSX interchanges with the Tennessee Southern Railroad, which is operated by Patriot Rail, on the northern end of Columbia. Patriot Rail and the city of Columbia and others already have made impactful contributions to the property's development, CSX officials said in a press release. Select Sites are development-ready properties along the CSX network where standard land use considerations and comprehensive due diligence items have been addressed. The sites are able to meet the needs of a wide variety of manufacturers, significantly reducing the time required to build facilities and ultimately bring products to market. The Columbia Tennessee Rail Site is the second site in the state to be designated a CSX Select Site, and only one of two dozen properties across the Class I's service territories to meet the selection criteria.
