We have worked closely with the City-County Council, private sector and neighborhood leaders, and RACER Trust to position this property to attract the kind of smart, sustainable development that would be a point of pride for years to come. It’s clear that work has paid off.
Bert Steinmann
Mayor, Ewing Township, N.J.
Redevelopment of the former GM property has long been a priority for the township, and I am grateful to RACER Trust and the NJDEP for their efforts and to Atlantic Realty for their confidence in our community. A project of this scale and magnitude will be tremendously beneficial to our residents and businesses, creating new housing, jobs and shopping destinations while significantly increasing our tax base with private investment.

I appreciate RACER’s consistent and proactive efforts on behalf of our community.

Our team in the city works very hard to attract the kind of investment and economic development that will broadly benefit our residents and businesses, and I am pleased that Commonwealth Development has chosen to be a part of our community and our growth. I thank Kevin McDonell and his team, as well as RACER Trust, for their collaborative efforts to bring this important development for Southside Muncie to fruition.

County Administrator, Spotsylvania County, Va.
This is great news for Spotsylvania County. We’re thrilled to welcome idX Corporation to our community and eager to see the former GM plant spring back to life. I thank Terry Schultz, Scott Stewart, and the whole idX team for their confidence in our community, Governor Terry McAuliffe and the Commonwealth of Virginia for their support, and RACER Trust for working tirelessly to market the property for beneficial reuse and new manufacturing jobs. Patience and persistence were rewarded.

The RACER Trust is proving to be an able, creative and strategic partner in Michigan's economic development efforts.

In tandem, the RACER Trust and MEDC can offer prospective developers broad capabilities to transform properties to meet an array of potential new uses.
