Foundry Commercial says it has started construction on Phase II of WestPark 85, a 565,000-sq. ft. cross-dock structure, making it the largest speculative industrial warehouse under construction in North and South Carolina.
Phase II, which is expandable by an additional 100,000 sq. ft., is expected to be complete later this year. The building will have a 36-foot clear height cross-dock with 7-inch floors, more than 560 auto parking spaces along with more than 200 trailer parking positions, and energy efficient LED lighting.
“Phase II of the WestPark project serves as the largest speculative warehouse under construction in the Carolinas, and we believe our team is uniquely qualified to attract and retain the right tenants to this location,” Charles Jonas, Foundry Commercial’s principal and Carolinas market leader, said in a statement.
With more than eight million square feet in the development pipeline, Foundry Commercial says it has quickly become one of the most active industrial developers in the southeastern U.S.
Edifice says the cross-dock facility, Building C, is an estimated 561,000 sq. ft. and once completed the entire Class-A industrial park will total just over one million square feet.
