Greenville, SC – CRG is developing a 432,000-square-foot, Class-A pharmaceutical warehouse in Greenville, South Carolina pre-leased to Bausch + Lomb. This is the first phase of the project. Phase two allows Bausch + Lomb to expand operations by an additional 432,000-square-feet.
“In partnership with Gramercy Property Trust, CRG is pleased to announce the development of the state-of-the-art facility in Greenville, South Carolina,” CRG president Chris McKee said. “This development is important to Bausch + Lomb already established operations in the area.”
Its subsidiary, Bausch + Lomb, already operates a manufacturing facility located 4 miles from the new site with close proximity to I-85 and I-385.
“CRG has been a great partner to work with throughout the design and building process. We are looking forward to a successful completion of this project and being able to move into our new site.” Valeant Distribution and Logistics Executive Director Len Westermann said.
Parent company Clayco, Inc. will serve as the design-build firm. Subsidiary BatesForum will serve as the architect and Clayco will handle construction.
Once completed, the 432,000-square-foot facility will include a 38-foot clear height, temperature controlled warehouse, ESFR sprinkler system, 42 loading docks, one drive-in door, an expansion pad adjacent to the building, 101 trailer spaces and 94 auto spaces.
The development represents significant growth in the area. South Carolina’s largest employer, Michelin North America is currently expanding operations at its Greenville location. BMW US Manufacturing Company has a plant located in nearby Greer, South Carolina.
Construction began in March. Pouring of the footers, foundation and floor slabs are complete. Steel slab erection is expected to begin soon. The building will be available for occupancy in October 2017. For more information go to www.realcrg.com/projects/bausch-lomb-pharmaceutical-warehouse.
