Hunt Midwest breaks ground on Evergreen Logistics Park in South Carolina market
State-of-the-art, 200-acre logistics park to offer I-85 access with options for up to 1 million SF for users
Anderson, South Carolina — June 7, 2022 — Kansas City-based commercial real estate development company Hunt Midwest has continued to rapidly expand its footprint in South Carolina with the groundbreaking of its first building in the new 2 million-square-foot Evergreen Logistics Park. The initial 258,801-square-foot industrial facility is scheduled for completion in fourth quarter 2022. The overall logistics park will provide users space from 75,000 to 1 million square feet in multiple configurations to meet market demands.
Located in the Anderson County industrial corridor, Evergreen Logistics Park will offer tenants immediate access to I-85, which connects to major Southeastern population centers including Charlotte, NC; Atlanta, GA; and Richmond, VA. With I-85’s proximity, Evergreen Logistics Park’s distribution capabilities provide one-day shipping to more than 94 million people and two-day shipping to more than 245 million people. The park’s location is also adjacent to a thriving manufacturing base as well as a major FedEx terminal.
“Anderson County offers immediate access to one of the biggest supply chain and distribution corridors in the U.S.,” said Michael Bell, Hunt Midwest’s Senior Vice President of Commercial Real Estate. “Across all markets, our team has been strategic in placing developments in locations where logistics and distribution companies can lower costs while maximizing efficiency within their distribution and supply chain operations.”
“Forthcoming industrial developments like Evergreen Logistics Park are evidence of the continuing growth of logistics in Anderson County — and the demand for our productive citizens who possess a strong work ethic,” said Anderson County Councilman Brett Sanders. “We’re looking forward to the additional economic development Evergreen Logistics Park will offer and continuing to create opportunities for our great citizens.”
“The pro-business environment, skilled labor force, interstate accessibility, population growth, and supply chain demand drivers have propelled Hunt Midwest to expand its footprint into the Anderson County,” said Hunt Midwest’s President & CEO Ora Reynolds. “Anderson County’s central location on the I-85 corridor with a high concentration of manufacturers makes it ideal for development of new Class A manufacturing and logistics buildings.”
Evergreen Logistics Park will occupy a 200-acre site at 1105 Scotts Bridge Road in Anderson. Starting at 258,801 square feet of leasable space, the park will offer a range of build-to-suit configurations of up to 1 million square feet. The first facility, currently under construction, will provide 26 dock doors (expandable to 57), 60-foot speed bays at docks, four drive-in doors, more than 200 parking stalls, up to 77 tractor-trailer parking spots, and a 185-foot-deep truck court. Additional building features will include cross-dock configuration with 36-foot clear height, an ESFR sprinkler system, and motion-sensor LED lighting.
Following the recent announcement of construction commencement at Fort Prince Logistics Center, Evergreen Logistics Park represents the second development by Hunt Midwest in the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson market with other developments to follow. Hunt Midwest brings its extensive development expertise in the Midwest to the Southeast with nearly 7 million square feet of logistics and manufacturing space under construction or in the development pipeline within the region.
Hunt Midwest has selected Seamon Whiteside for civil engineering, LS3P for building design, and Evans General Contractors as the general contractor overseeing construction of the Evergreen Logistics Park. Leasing opportunities remain available within the development in coordination with CBRE.
