Lake Park - Construction is underway a much-anticipated project in Lowndes County that will create hundreds of jobs.

This 89-acre site at the Lake Park Industrial Authority will be home to Home Depot's Regional Distribution Center.

The nearly $40-million project is expected to create 600 jobs.

The Lowndes County Industrial Authority hopes having a Fortune 100 company like Home Depot move in will help them recruit other big name manufacturers to the community. 

"We are starting to solidify ourselves as a distribution and logistics hub for I-75, I-10 coming and going. We are now blessed with multiple Fortune 100 companies that have located here," Crawford Powell, a board member at the Industrial Authority.

The Center is slated to open in the first quarter of 2009.
