“T-Rex plans to develop the site with a food manufacturing and/or research development center, a culinary marketplace with culinary retailers and related businesses and a hospitality zone, which will include construction of two hotels, a conference space and a potential spa,” Lee said.

The IDA incentives include a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT) agreement, mortgage tax exemption and sales tax exemption for an approximately $30 million project includes phase one construction of a hotel and site infrastructure.
