Adidas, Patagonia locating in Luzerne County

HANOVER TWP. — Adidas, a multinational corporation that designs and manufactures shoes, clothing and accessories, and Patagonia, an American outdoor clothing company, will occupy the two buildings under construction next to online pet supply retailer, according to county documents.
Missouri-based NorthPoint Development, which owns a 172-acre tract in the Hanover Industrial Estates which houses the three buildings, identified the two new tenants in documents submitted to Luzerne County Council.
Brent Miles, vice president for NorthPoint Development, came to a city council meeting Tuesday seeking a tax break for another proposed project on Earth Conservancy land it plans to purchase in Hanover Twp. and Nanticoke.
Adidas has leased the 843,000-square-foot building and Patagonia has leased a 360,000-square-foot building in the Hanover Ridge Trade Center, according to county council documents.
Miles could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday morning but previously said the goal is to create a total of about 2,000 jobs on the site.
Construction of the three buildings will total more than 2 million square feet.
