BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. — Developers anticipate half a billion dollars in development coming to Charles Pointe, in part thanks to an $11 million infrastructure investment.

Genesis Partners, the district’s developers, held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday celebrating the investment, which was attended by numerous local, county and state officials.

Prior to the groundbreaking, members of Genesis Partners and local dignitaries gathered at the Bridgeport Conference Center to hear a presentation from Charles Pointe owner James Corton, as well as from Kris Warner, executive director of the West Virginia Economic Development Authority, who represented Gov. Jim Justice.

“For more than 20 years, the folks at Charles Pointe have been working with Bridgeport and Harrison County to develop the sustainable growth this area is known for across the entire state,” Warner said.

“We doubled the size of the city of Bridgeport. And when you think about that — it just takes some time. It takes some time to do these things,” Corton said.

The $11 million infrastructure investment will go toward building roads, establishing underground utility connections, flattening hills and filling a valley to create space for new businesses.

The first item on the agenda is removing a large hill at the site where a new Mon Health hospital will be built, Corton said. The cost of hospital will be about $30 million.
