Potash Corp., of Saskatoon, Canada, will spend about $64 million to build a 300-yard-long building just off Summer Street and Hump Road at the Gibson Yard, McDermott said Tuesday morning at City Hall.
It will take about 285 union construction workers to build the new facility, according to the city.
Indiana Harbor Belt Railway has been clearing land and laying new tracks at Gibson Yard for months in anticipation of Potash and other companies that may move there.
