Industrial Development – Site Selection

KCS’s Industrial Development team has the local market knowledge to assist you in your site selection or expansion. Our online site selection tool provides you or your client with information on properties available for rail served facilities. Please utilize the tool to both  search for rail served sites or buildings or, contact us, to make your property available via our database. On this site you will see both our ready to build Premier sites as well as Logistics Parks. 

KCS Premier Sites are certified, shovel ready sites that are pre-approved for rail service. Premier Site certification criteria include size, access to rail services, proximity to highways, workforce availability, natural gas, electricity, water, and wastewater, environmental and geo-technical standards. We understand that time is money and our prospects are anxious to be producing. As such, we can help significantly reduce the time to market for your new rail served facility by introducing you to KCS Certified Premier Sites that put you that much closer to breaking ground. 


Our premier sites offer:

  • Reduced development timeline and upfront risk
  • The ability to have rail built in
  • Larger size acreage (>150 acres)
  • Pre-approved zoning
  • Pre-existing utility and road infrastructure or prepared costs and timelines provided
  • Environmental and permit due diligence already completed
  • Committed local partner/advocate ready to assist
