Elected leadership and project stakeholders will gather to celebrate this collaborative project between the City of Brevard, Transylvania County, Golden LEAF Foundation and North Carolina Department of Commerce.

Approximately 30,000 square feet of the facility will be immediately occupied and leased by SylvanSport, a leading innovator and manufacturer of outdoor gear headquartered in Brevard, NC.
