P&G intends to build a two-story facility that will encompass about 75,300 square feet and include laboratories, offices and storage warehousing, according to documents filed with the Reading Borough Council. A four-story garage that could accommodate 190 automobiles is also planned. The new structures would occupy about 3.7 acres of the P&G site in Reading. Plans call for the refurbishment of the southern half of the retained Gillette building and the erection of a rear extension that would include the new R&D laboratory and offices plus warehousing.
The site now includes manufacturing buildings, offices, a testing center, a warehouses and surface parking.
