'The options are unlimited' | A look at the 1,800+ acres of land at the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite

It's close to 1,900 acres and Toyota will soon call home as it builds its first-ever car battery plant in North America.

RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — The future is bright for the Triad. Plans are already underway for a Toyota facility at the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite.

Even though it's just a huge plot of land of trees and dirt right now, Triad schools are already training students to work there.

Construction hasn't started yet, but WFMY got a 360 look at the land.

"I am actually happy about it," Liberty resident Kevin Bowman said. "I know some people are upset, but if you get away from the tree and look at the forest we need growth."

The town of Liberty is right next to the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite.

It's close to 1,900 acres and Toyota will soon call home as it builds its first-ever car battery plant in North America.

"I see the downtown, the center part of Liberty staying the small bed and breakfast community we've always liked, but I see the outside of 421 and other areas more housing developments, some pop-up support business, and some more restaurants, some grocery stores because there's got to be more stuff for people," Bowman said.

For Chairman of the Randolph County Board of Commissioners, Darrell Frye, he said there are endless opportunities on the chunk of land. 

"I don't know how to envision 2025 with the size of the buildings, and the number of those buildings, how they'll be used, and if we go to phase three, that's even more use of the property," Frye said. "I just think the 1,900 acres gives Toyota lots of room to do whatever their future plans are."

"I feel relieved, I feel even more excited than I've been through the process, and just to sort of sit down for a minute and realize what we've done, and what lies ahead for us, for our county, and for this region," Frye said." "I think the options are unlimited."
