The Owensboro Riverport Purchases New Riverfront Property for $1 Million

The Owensboro Riverport is purchasing riverfront property and a warehouse owned by a private company, for future use as a storage facility with river access.

Riverport President and CEO Brian Wright said the organization is purchasing 7.8 acres of land on the riverport property from Nutrine Ag Solutions. The site contains a bulk storage warehouse, offices, a truck scale and equipment for moving bulk material such as salt, grain or fertilizer from barges to the warehouse.

The property was originally owned by Miles Enterprises, which sold it to Crop Production Services, Wright said Friday. CPS later became Nutrine.

Nutrine has an updated site on the riverport property and is no longer using the warehouse, Wright said.
