SOURCE: Land Betterment Corporation
FISHERS, Ind., November 28, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Land Betterment Corporation (“Land Betterment” or the “Company”), an environmental solutions company fostering positive impact through upcycling former coal mining and industrial sites to create sustainable community development and job creation is pleased to share updates on its Entrepreneur Zone (“E-Zone”).
Land Betterment’s first Entrepreneur Zone was established in a former coal mining company’s office headquarters located in Hazard, Kentucky. After acquiring the building, Land Betterment completely renovated, rehabilitated, and upgraded the old building into a new, modern office complex.
The 10,000 square foot E-Zone building now offers extensive technology upgrades and modern work spaces and provides a collaborative community environment that brings diverse entrepreneurs together. E-Zone offers workspaces, community resources, education and start-up capital to help foster and grow the businesses renting the space. Because the E-Zone building is both centrally and prominently located, this is a very desirable facility for lessees. Currently, there is a waiting list of both individuals and companies wanting to rent space.
The primary tenant who occupies 95% of the building is Mountain Comprehensive Care (“MCCC”). MCCC provides regional behavioral healthcare to individuals seeking support and is using the space for both professional offices as well as community space for individuals needing MCCC’s services. The additional floors of the building are shared with other tenants who are using this for professional offices such as occupational therapists and other.
Land Betterment is now looking to create additional E-Zone locations in other parts of the country. The next site is anticipated to be located in Indiana and will be finalized sometime in December 2022. The 1st Indiana E-Zone is expected to be larger than the Kentucky E-Zone.
Land Betterment’s Chief Development Officer, Tom Sauve, commented, “When we opened the 1st E-Zone in Kentucky, it was our plan to build out this model in additional states throughout the country so that we can continue to help more organizations not only rebuild but thrive. The current waiting list for occupancy at the E-Zone in Hazard Kentucky is a testament to the quality and attractiveness that the E-Zone model offers communities looking to attract new industries. We are thrilled to be narrowing in on a location in Indiana and expect this location to be significantly larger than our E-Zone in Kentucky. Beyond Kentucky and Indiana we continue to look to replicate the E-Zone model throughout the United States.”
