General Motors has plans for a new “state-of-the-art” parts processing center in Burton, Michigan. MLive first reported on the potential project last month after GM was outed as the client for a NorthPoint development project. The development company has handled numerous GM projects.
According to the latest report published on Monday, the Burton facility will be a $65 million investment into the 1.1 million-square-foot facility. GM plans to lease the land from NorthPoint. The details have slowly trickled out after the city of Burton unanimously approved a 12-year-long tax abatement, though a final approval must come from the State Tax Commission.
It’s unclear how many new jobs the new facility will bring, but a previous estimate hovered around 800 new positions with the Burton facility. Work should begin on the new facility later this month with a tentative opening date sometime in 2019.
