River Ridge Commerce Center: Indiana's 6000 Acre Crown Jewel
"When you're ready to reach the world, River Ridge is right where you need to be."
The River Ridge Development Authority was originally established to replace the lost economic revenue previously generated by the now shuttered Indiana Army Ammunition Plant. Our goal has expanded to meet the tailored needs and create the top destination for advanced manufacturing, distribution and industrial companies from across the nation and around the world. The new vision also includes providing homes for research and development organizations capable of keeping River Ridge on the cutting edge of technologies across the service spectrum. With our exceptional logistical advantages now in place and soon to be completed the River Ridge Commerce Center has all the elements to become America's premier development site.
River Ridge Commerce Center is a world-class business and manufacturing park with 6,000 prime acres under development in the Midwest’s top-ranked business environment. The Commerce Center is a high-profile location with large parcels of land along the Ohio River. It is close in proximity to the Greater Louisville, KY Metro area with access to I-265, I-65, I-64, and I-71. It’s adjacent to the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville & Clark County Regional Airport. The Commerce Center is minutes away from UPS Worldport at Louisville International Airport. CSX railroad also has connection via the Mid-American rail services along with the U.S. Foreign Trade Zone and Indiana Urban Enterprise Zone.
The River Ridge Commerce Center was formerly the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant. The plant manufactured gunpowder during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Congress declared the property surplus in 1998 and authorized 6,000 acres of the property to be conveyed to the River Ridge Development Authority for economic development and other parts of the property to be used for expansion of the Charlestown State Park.
