Anchor Works LLC makes Substantial Progress on former Anchor Hocking Site

Anchor Hocking

The former Anchor Hocking site, visible from U.S. Route 50 West, was once homes to Hazel Atlas, Continental Can, and Brockway Glass. Anchor Works LLC acquired the property and began work in June 2018.

City officials have been in discussion with the developer of Anchor Works LLC and are continuing to assist wherever needed to encourage and foster redevelopment.  The City has had much success in developing former industrial properties.  Past Brownfield redevelopment efforts include: Oliverio Italian Style Peppers built a new production line at the former Quality Foundry site; Valley Supply opened a regional distribution center at the former West Virginia Mack property; and lastly the redevelopment of the former Adamston Flat Glass site which includes Price Cutter (formerly Shop N Save), Pizza Hut and Dollar Tree.

The 22-acre property has a lot of potential because of its overall prime location to U.S. 50 and the railroad.  The property is currently zoned for commercial and industrial use.

The property is located in a newly certified Opportunity Zone.  The Opportunity Zones program was established under the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act to spur long-term private-sector investments and provide a unique opportunity to invest in communities and stimulate economic growth.  Clarksburg was fortunate to be selected for this highly competitive designation. 

According to the developer, construction has begun on a structural steel building on the rear portion of the site.  This building will be used for securing material and equipment internally as the property is developed.  Excluding the large silo, 70% of the pre-existing concrete building foundations have been removed and processed with an on-site crusher.  The company is actively removing the remaining foundations and processing the concrete for re-use. All of the scrap steel has been recycled to local scrap yards.

The large silo is anticipated to be razed by the end of June, weather permitting and all of the concrete will be recycled on-site as beneficial re-use.  By fall 2019, Anchor Works anticipates marketing the property to potential tenants and engaging in conversations around developing the available acreage, pricing, and overall intended use.
