Kingsboro MEGAsite. ready to roll.
At the crossroads of the East Coast.
The Kingsboro CSX Select Site is strategically located in the heart of the eastern seaboard, just off US Highway 64, and 10 minutes east of Interstate I-95. The capital city, Raleigh, is only one hour to the west.
This 1,449-acre site is located 5 miles east of Rocky Mount and 6 miles west of Tarboro. 60 minutes away is the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), while just 30 minutes away is the Pitt-Greenville general aviation airport. The site is equidistant between the busy ports of Norfolk and Wilmington.
CSX Transportation provides rail service to the area, and is adjacent to the site. Kingsboro is the first in the state to receive the esteemed CSX Select Site Designation, which confirms that land use issues have been addressed and the site is ready for development.
Aerial imagery shows the majority of the property surrounding the Kingsboro Megasite is undeveloped woods and agricultural land.

The topography map highlights the elevation change from higher to lower elevations by 10-foot color-coded intervals, along with high points and low points. The perimeter roads are located along the ridges of the property. The entire site drains north into Walnut Creek, which flows north into the Tar River located less than 1/2 mile north of Alternate US Highway 64.
The highest elevations are located near the proposed parkway and range from 102 to 112 feet. The low points of the property are located in and along the streams that flow to the north and range from 56 to 80 feet in elevation. The Kingsboro Mega Site is generally flat with an average slope of approximately 1.5%.
SLOPE ANALYSIS MAP
This map highlights the areas of the Kingsboro Mega Site where development may be limited by slope conditions. Approximately 94% of the site (1,364 acres) contains slopes of 10% or less. Roughly 4% of the site (50 acres) contains slopes between 10% and 15%. Slopes of 15% or more (27 acres) that would limit development are all located along the streams.
Although the amount of earthwork required for a facility will vary greatly depending on its size, cut and fill depths of 10 to 15 feet should be expected. Cut is anticipated along the higher elevations to fill the steeper or lower areas to maximize the buildable area.
MASTER CONCEPT PLAN (AUTOMOTIVE ASSEMBLY PLANT)
The Master Concept Plan features a curvilinear divided parkway with nine potential developable sites ranging from 6 acres to 364 acres. The new Kingsboro Road Parkway is proposed to be a 4-lane parkway with access to the major parcels by traffic circles. Most of the sites are located on the 1,295 acres north of US Highway 64, while two building pad areas are shown on the 154 acres to the south. Building Pad areas B, C and D are shown with a rail spur extension.
This concept includes closing Harts Chapel Road (SR 1217), which has been approved by the NCDOT. Each building pad area can either stand on its own or can be combined to form a larger building footprint as dictated by the prospective industry.
PROPOSED & Existing utilities PLAN
The Proposed & Existing Utilities Plan shows the location of the planned 2-mile access road, rail spurs to serve each site, and utility extensions. Proposed infrastructure, shown in red, is entirely conceptual, subject to change to suit the needs of development.
