A local partnership plans to build a 100,000-square-foot spec building offering modern manufacturing and warehousing space on the site of the former Western Reserve High School, 2668 Front St. SW.

The building will be the first phase of the new West Warren Industrial Park, which will be constructed using the former school property and the site of the onetime Westlawn housing projects.

The project is being developed by Sapientia Ventures LLC, whose managing partners are Chuck George, Mike Martof and Wiley Runnestrand, co-owners of GreenBoard IT in Warren.

The partners plan to spend $9 million to develop the first building, Martof said. The space is needed to meet the needs of existing local companies looking for modern space to expand as well as to attract companies looking to capitalize on developments including the emerging electric vehicle supply chain.
