Certified Select Sites

CSX Select Sites are premium certified rail-served sites for industrial development and expansion. These properties are ready to accommodate rail-served industrial customers and have been certified by The Austin Company. Select Sites present a unique opportunity to purchase a property with lower upfront development risk and faster speed to market. 

To receive the Select Site designation, sites must meet a stringent set of criteria, including:

  • Size (the program’s optimal size is 100 to 1,000 developable acres)
  • Land control
  • Workforce availability
  • Infrastructure and utility availability
  • Environmental and cultural reviews
  • Wetland delineation
  • Appropriate zoning and entitlement
  • Rail serviceability
  • Proximity to highways or interstates
  • Other location attributes and due diligence criteria

Candidate sites for the program must have attractive characteristics for large industrial companies and be free of “red flags” or barriers to a quick development timeline. The sites must also be located in communities that are committed to attracting new industrial operations.
