The Northern Plains Commerce Centre (NPCC) is a premier industrial park with immediate access to road and rail transport located in Bismarck, North Dakota. The NPCC allows companies to improve their ability to efficiently distribute products within the Northern Plains region and globally. Industrial expansion sites are available. The facility offers both rail and non-rail served sites.
Located adjacent to the Bismarck Airport, the NPCC is home to a variety of businesses, including the Bobcat Acceleration Center and Tubular Transport and Logistics (TTL). Tubular Transport and Logistics offers rail to truck reloading, trucking and storage services allowing non-rail served businesses to take advantage of long haul cost savings by using rail.
The NPCC has access to both Canadian Pacific and the BNSF via the DMVW Railroad. The truck route between US I-94 and the Northern Plains Commerce Centre is considered a heavy haul corridor.
Construction sites with or without rail service are available. Sites can be permitted on a fast track and utilities are available along Northern Plains Drive and Morrison Ave.
The Northern Plains Commerce Centre is a 243-acre industrial park that is rail served.
Whether customers of the NPCC are local manufacturers, distributors, retailers or suppliers of these companies, the ability to ship by rail offers another option for shippers to reduce transportation costs. The facility also provides a competitive edge in our ability to attract companies to locate or expand in our community with shovel-ready construction sites.
The NPCC is a 243-acre fully developed industrial park site. Rail and non-rail servied parcels of various sizes are available for lease or purchase.
The NPCC is designed for companies that expect to move large volumes of freight by rail and/or truck. Typically that includes advanced manufacturers, ag-processors, warehouse and distribution companies.
The Northern Plains Commerce Centre is located on the southeast side of Bismarck, adjacent to the Bismarck Airport. The industrial park has easy access to both US I-94 (east/west) and US Highway 83 (north/south). Directions: US I-94 to Exit 161. Turn south on to Bismarck Expressway and follow for appoximately 3 miles. Turn left on to Yegen Road and follow to Morrison Ave. The NPCC available property begins west of the Bobcat Company MSC on the south side of Morrison Ave. It includes property on the east and west side of Northern Plains Drive between Airway Ave. and Morrison Ave. The property extends south on Northern Plains Drive.
The 13.63 and 17.60 acre parcels on the south side of the property can be rail-served and both the switch and stub track are already built to the property. However, no other City owned parcels in the NPCC can be rail-served at this point.
The City is willing to sell or lease property in the NPCC. In general, sale prices range from $2.50 – $3.00 per square foot depending upon frontage to concrete streets and other factors. Lease rates will vary with the term.
Sections of Northern Plains Drive, Global Drive and Trade Street have recently been improved to concrete via a special assessment improvement district. Special assessments were applied to adjacent properties in the fall of 2015 with the first installment paid with the property taxes in 2016. After the City pays the special assessments for the parcels it owns, the sales prices will be adjusted accordingly.
All buildings constructed in the NPCC must receive clearance from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This is done in coordination with the client’s project engineer.
For those interested in utilizing the NPCC as a location from which to transload freight without leasing or purchasing property, please contact Tubular Transport & Logistics (TTL) at (701) 255-6700.
