Nance Companies and MPV Properties (MPV) say they have started building the first of first two office/warehouse buildings at Clear Creek Business Park in Mint Hill. The firms are co-developing a total of 40,000 sq. ft. in the project’s initial phase.
Construction is scheduled to be finished in the summer of this year.
Cummings Construction is the general contractor, and Chris Hope Engineering is the architect and civil engineer.
Building A’ totals 16,000 sq. ft. and is fully leased to E.R. Plumbing Services, which is relocating from Matthews Executive Plaza. Building permit records indicate a $848,000 permit was issued Nov. 2, 2018 under the project name “ER Plumbing Services” at 11345 Allen Dr. to an owner/tenant identified as DL Parker Properties LLC.
“With the additional space, E.R. Plumbing Services will be able to increase inventory of parts, appliances and heavy equipment, all of which require significant warehouse storage space. The company also intends to provide top notch training and expand services,” says owner Dave Parker.
‘Building B’ is a speculative project totaling 24,000 sq. ft. that can accommodate multiple tenants. This structure, identified as “Berkshire #17”, had a building permit valued at $1,023,500 issued on Nov. 8.
Both buildings will be constructed of metal with brick masonry and windows lining the front and sides.
Roads and infrastructure at Clear Creek are already in place, and development activity near the business park has increased with the recent opening of Novant’s new Mint Hill Hospital and Cresswind’s 800 plus home community off of Albemarle Road, the developers say in a news release.
“The vast majority of industrial land in Mecklenburg County has been developed and we feel there isn’t much new product in the flex market, so we thought it was the right time to develop a spec building in conjunction with E.R. Plumbing,” Bailey Patrick of MPV said in a statement.
Completion of the first two buildings is slated to occur this summer, and several other land sales and build-to-suit projects at the park are also in the works.
