Below are some useful links regarding business incentives in Tennessee and in Oak Ridge, where scientific and business development is booming.
Business Incentives and Support:
The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development compiled a list of grants for businesses plus economic incentives and tax credits: https://tnecd.com/advantages/incentives-grants/ Click on the county in the map to see what "Tier" it falls under for business incentives. Anderson County, where Oak Ridge is located, is a Tier 2 county.

Lot 4.05, 1004 Commerce Park Drive, Commerce Park, Oak Ridge
We have a cleared, 6.28 acre lot in Commerce Park listed for sale. This is the lowest priced, most affordable lot in the entire business park. View more details here: https://www.flexmls.com/share/2d8NF/1004CommerceParkDriveOakRidgeTN37830
People have asked a number of questions about the lot. Below are some questions and answers.
What can be built? A one-story or multi-story building could be constructed. With an IND-2 zoning, there are many permitted uses.
Can there be loading docks? Yes, the building could be fitted with loading docks.
Are there are least 800 amps of power? Yes, Commerce Park has the capacity to meet this need.
Are there natural gas lines? Yes, gas is available.
Where is Commerce Park relative to the downtown and the nearby highways? Commerce Park is situated south of the Oak Ridge downtown area, near the Y-12 National Security Complex and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, close to major highways. Trucks carrying your materials and goods would not be traveling through residential neighborhoods.
What is a major ongoing expansion project that is bringing jobs and money to the area? Anderson County and Oak Ridge, in my opinion, are highly open to new businesses. They have (wisely) approved a $6.5 billion construction project for a Uranium Processing Facility.
Can I buy the lot now and build later? Yes, it could be prudent to purchase the lot now and spend the upcoming months planning and ultimately constructing the right facility for your business or laboratory.
