St. John Properties, in partnership with Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), is developing The Government and Technology Enterprise (The GATE), a state-of-the-art office and technology business park for lease to government sector and non-government users. APG, a leading R&D and testing center for the U.S. Army, boasts some of the most sophisticated testing firms, defense contractors and other Army and Department of Defense units working on advanced research activities to complement APG's missions and help make it a Center for Excellence.
Chevron Energy Solutions and Keenan Development announced the commer- cial operation of a $100 million central utility plant to provide chilled water, continuous steam, electricity and standby emergency power to reliably meet the needs of the National Interagency Biodefense Campus laboratory and bio- defense research work at Ft. Detrick in Frederick, MD. This plant is the first energy project established through the Department of Defense's enhanced-use lease authority, which allows private companies to develop non-essential military property for commercial use. Chevron Energy Solutions, who operates the facility, designed and built the plant. Keenan Development owns the plant and leases the land from Ft. Detrick. "This plant will help ensure continued progress in biomedical research and other critical defense work at Ft. Detrick,"
In July 2009, General Motors and the U.S. Army officially opened GM's test facility in the southwest on the Army's Yuma Proving Ground. The opening marked the end of most construction activity and the beginning of a cooperative arrangement hammered out 2 years ago. The agreement will provide GM with a suitable test facility following the closing of their long standing Mesa Proving Ground. In the agreement GM has leased a portion of the Yuma Proving Ground from the government on which several test roads and support facilities have been built. Both the Army and GM will have access to road systems they currently did not have on their property. A win – win for both groups.
