The Warren County Port Authority is expected to sign leases with a developer on a 1.3 million square foot warehouse and distribution facility with the operators of an industrial park in Monroe.

On Thursday, the port authority board is scheduled to vote on leases and agreements with Park North 6, an affiliate of Industrial Developments International.

The leases would enable Park North 6 to avoid sales tax on materials purchased for the project.

It was unclear how much the developer would save as a result or how much the port authority was charging for closing or legal fees.

Park North 6 is a 70-acre industrial park off Ohio 63, east of Interstate 75.

The operators are soliciting contracts for the project and seeking the leases and agreements with the port authority, much like those on other buildings in the industrial park, according to documents to be voted on Thursday.
