The building features ESFR sprinkler system, 32’ clear height, a 185’ truck court to accommodate on-site trailer parking and ample car parking for employees.
Beacon partnered at 545 Brookshire Road with Allen Cullum, developer of nearby Velocity Park, who has longstanding family ties to the Greer community. “It’s gratifying to see this building going up at such a promising time in the Upstate. South Carolina is doing an exceptionally good job with economic development these days and we’re thankful to be a part of that growth here in Greer.”
“Quality sites and buildings are the fuel that powers Greer’s economic development machine,” said Mayor Rick Danner. “We are truly grateful to Mr. Cullum and Beacon Partners for their commitment to attracting new industry to Greer. Their investment will yield new, high-paying jobs in Greer for years to come.”
