PLEASANT PRAIRIE — A Pleasant Prairie company plans to expand its facility in LakeView Corporate Park.
On Monday, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission approved site and operational plans for Ta Chen International Inc. to expand its 471,645-square-foot facility at 8500 109th St. to 736,943 square feet.
The request was made by Melissa Roman with CenterPoint Properties for the addition.
Ta Chen International is a distributor of stainless, aluminum and nickel alloy coils, sheets, plates, long products, tubes and PVFs.
The company has about 65 employees, with no definite plans to hire additional employees.
This project will include an expansion to the east side of the existing facility, along with additional truck dock areas.
The six existing driveway access points on the site will remain, with one new proposed access driveway to 80th Avenue.
The site will be expanded to provide 116 total parking spaces, including five handicapped-accessible spaces.
Six new dock doors will be added on the north and south sides of the building for a total of 14 dock spaces for the site overall.
Forty-three additional future truck parking spaces are proposed to be constructed abutting 109th Street.
Construction of the addition will begin this summer and is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2020.
