A Class A industrial/office flex project under construction near Haywood Road should help meet the need in Greenville for light manufacturing, delivery services, warehousing, or office space, the project manager said.
Called Haywood Ridge, the 45,824-square-foot building at 510 Airport Road is being leased by NAI Earle Furman, whose brokers Alex Campbell and Hunter represent Central Realty Holdings in Greenville.
Central owns 50 percent of the property in partnership with the Goldsmith family of Greenville, said Tori Wallace, senior analyst, development coordinator and the project manager for Central Realty.
The first of two planned buildings and all of the site work should be finished in early April at an estimated cost of about $7.3 million, Wallace said.
The second building will be the same size and, once leasing on the first building is further along, it should be finished “pretty quickly,” Wallace said. The project cost for both buildings will total about $9.5 million, she said.
The project initially was expected to total 94,146 square feet, but current estimates are closer to 91,648, Wallace said.
The first building likely will hold five to 10 tenants. Because it is being built as flex space, the building could accommodate a number of uses such as delivery firms, offices, light manufacturing or warehouse operations, Wallace said.
She declined to name prospective tenants, but said two leases are being negotiated for about half the space.
“Obviously, this wasn’t going to be a site for any heavy manufacturing by any means but there is definitely that need in the Greenville market right now,” Wallace said.
The site, near the Downtown Greenville Airport, has “great connectivity” to Laurens Road and Interstate 385, she said.
The property, zoned S-1 for services firms, is in the city of Greenville, Wallace said.
