Augusta Grove, an industrial business park in Greenville County, announced on Oct. 3 the start of construction of a second Class A, speculative industrial building, with the goal of attracting more major business to the area.
Based on the leasing momentum in the Augusta Grove Business Park and the success of the 1610 Old Grove Road spec building, a second speculative building is underway on a 75-acre site near the intersection of Matrix Parkway and Old Grove Road and will be completed by the late spring or early summer of 2019.
The Class A industrial building located at 1700 Old Grove Road, Piedmont, will be a 300,645-square-foot, tilt-wall concrete industrial project known as AG #14. The building will have will have a 32-foot minimum clear height, 48-by-52-foot column spacing, 135-foot truck court, 49 potential dock positions, trailer storage with expansion, ESFR sprinkler, LED lighting, 60-foot speed bays as well as utilities with the capacity to accommodate both distribution and manufacturing uses.
The rear-load facility can accommodate a single tenant or can be subdivided to accommodate a multi-tenant configuration.
Augusta Grove #14’s flexible design is the product of collaboration between architectural firm Wakefield Beasley & Associates – a NELSON Company and BlueWATER Civil Design. Harper Corporation will be handling construction.
“We are honored to continue being a part of the success of this vital business park for Greenville County,” said David Wise, president of The Harper Corporation, in a released statement. “Our expertise with Tilt-Up Concrete Wall Panel Construction will allow our team to create top-quality Class-A industrial product for the Augusta Grove ownership team and serve the Upstate’s industrial market for years to come.”
The project is being developed by a group led by TPA Group of Atlanta and Greenville-based Appian Investments.
