Why Knox County?

Our community offers a rural lifestyle and connects with the Columbus metropolitan area – plus we have some of the finest landscape views in Ohio!

The Area Development Foundation’s understanding of Knox County’s high-quality workforce, shovel-ready commercial & industrial properties, and sophisticated economic development deal-making will impress you.

Real Estate

Since 1957, the Area Development Foundation has helped develop commercial real estate in Knox County.  We help market commercial and industrial properties including high-quality “shovel-ready sites” for immediate development by industrial end-users.

In October 2017, the Knox County Land Bank was created, with the Foundation providing operations support and management over its activities.
