UNION COUNTY — Are you in the market for a 100,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that can be doubled in size if needed located on a 24-acre site with additional land available and access to sustainable and green utilities at a cost of less than $4 million?
If you are, then the now under construction Midway Green Industrial Spec Building in Union County is the bargain you’ve been looking for.
Owned by Midway Green Development, LLC, the spec building is located at 260 Midway Drive, Union, in the Midway Green Industrial Park. Midway Green Industrial Park is a 142-acre South Carolina Department of Commerce Certified Industrial Park owned by Pacolet Milliken Enterprises. Being located in Union County means that the park and the spec building are centrally located in the southeast between Greenville/Spartanburg, SC, Columbia, SC, and Charlotte, NC with close proximity to the Port of Charleston and the Inland Port of Greer.
The spec building, which is projected to be completed in September, will be 100,000 square feet in size and is designed so as to be easily expanded to 200,000 square feet to accommodate the future growth of the company that acquires it. Speaking of expansion, the spec building is located on 24 acres within the 142-acre industrial park and therefore more acreage is available to accommodate even more growth.
Utilities to the site are provided by Lockhart Power (electricity), the City of Union Utility Department (natural gas, water, and sewer), AT&T and Charter Communications (Telecomunications). Over 99 percent of the power supplied by Lockhart Power comes from renewable resources and an adjacent wastewater treatment plant provides treated greywater for process needs.
The spec building is being developed through a public-private partnership between Union County and Lockhart Power who are sharing equally the cost of its development. Union County Supervisor Frank Hart, Lockhart Power Chief Operating Officer Bryan Stone, along with other local public officials, and representatives of Pacolet Milliken Enterprises, Inc., the parent company of Lockhart Power; Mcmillan Pazdan Smith, the architectural firm that designed the spec building; and THS Constructors, the company building it, formally announced the project during a groundbreaking ceremony this morning.
During the ceremony, it was announced that the spec building is expected to be completed by September though hopes were that before then it will already be sold to what speakers described as a “world class company” that would use it for a manufacturing facility that would bring with it much investment in Union County and create many good, high-paying jobs for county residents. It was also announced that the sale price of the spec building would be $3.9 million.
