Chesterfield County announces the availability of two properties ready for industry.
The Carolinas Centre speculative building is a 52,284 square foot facility expandable to 102,284 square foot. The building is LEED pre-certified and suitable for industrial manufacturers or suppliers since it will have a 26-inch clear height. The front of the building is designed for a two story office layout.
Located on a 162-acre “shovel-ready” Carolinas Centre Industrial Park on Highway 9 between Cheraw and Chesterfield, S.C., the building is ready for occupancy. Chesterfield County and the towns of Cheraw and Chesterfield, who jointly own the property, worked with Carlisle Associates and Southside Constructors Inc. to design and build the building.
The Lynches River Industrial site is a 23-acre site just north of the Walmart Distribution Center on Highway 151/601. Chesterfield County partnered with the Lynches River Electric Cooperative on the project. Alliance Engineering completed the design of a ready to build 50,000 expandable building on the site.
“We in Chesterfield County understand the need to attract industries and good jobs to our area and communities,” said Matt Rivers, chairman of the Chesterfield County Council. “Through an aggressive economic development program and our partnership with the towns of Cheraw and Chesterfield and Lynches River Electric Coop, among others including Progress Energy, we hope to bring more jobs to our area.”
“Nearly 85 percent of development projects begin with a search for an existing facility,” said Brenda Workman, executive director of the Chesterfield County Economic Development Board. “This existing facility may or may not suit their specific needs, but it attracts their attention to our area. Many times this interest is strong enough that the industry will build its own facility here.”
