A year ago Greer Development Corporation President Reno Deaton stood before City Council to deliver his annual report. At the end, Deaton told Council that Greer was void of 150,000 square foot speculative buildings to entice new industry.

Tuesday the GDC announced construction of a new 156,000 square foot Class A industrial building in Caliber Ridge Industrial Park by Liberty Property Trust is underway. Caliber Ridge is located off I-85 at Hwy. 101, across from the BMW Manufacturing Co.

AL Solutions, Inc., a distributor of filtration products for the automotive aftermarket, announced that it would locate a new manufacturing facility in about 50,000 square feet of this space in early 2014.

"It's great to see this type of building making a comeback in the upstate,” said David Wise, President of Harper Corporation. “We have a unique approach that allows us to deliver these Tilt Up structures at ultra competitive prices without sacrificing the speed and high level of quality our clients deserve."

Caliber Ridge is a planned Class A Industrial Park that when complete in the next two to three years will include up to five buildings offering a total of 720,000 square feet of space. 110 Caliber Ridge Drive features tilt up wall panel construction, 28 foot ceiling heights, multiple dock high and grade level access points, ESFR sprinklers, and aggressive tenant improvement packages. Caliber Ridge has been approved for Foreign Trade Zone status. The 156,000 square foot building is scheduled for completion in January 2014.

The industrial park can accommodate tenants from 20,000 – 400,000 square feet with several configurations possible including cross docking.

Massie Flippin, Vice President and City Manager for Liberty Property Trust Carolinas region, said, “The demand for industrial space in the Upstate has been solid over the past 24 months, especially in sectors tied to the region’s deep manufacturing base,” he said.

“Caliber Ridge offers tenants a first class industrial opportunity in the most sought after area in the market along the I-85 corridor,” said Brian Young, Senior Vice President and Managing Broker for Cusham & Wakefield /Thalhimer. “As such, we have seen strong interest from users that desire to locate near BMW and in between Greenville and Spartanburg.
