Landscaping and road work is finished at Calvert Business Park on U.S. 43 in north Mobile County, and construction is under way on a facility for the first tenant, an ABC store, according to Riley Boykin Smith, president of Tensaw. Smith and his Tensaw partners, Starr Boykin and Lee Moncrief, are developing the 40-acre park less than a mile from ThyssenKrupp's main entrance. ThyssenKrupp's $4.65 billion project, which will house both carbon steel and stainless steel operations, is expected to employ 2,700 people when at full operation.
