CRG Developing First Phase of Bausch + Lomb Warehouse Expansion in Greenville, Partners with Gramercy Property Trust
The Class-A Pharmaceutical Warehouse will be 432,000 Square Feet, with the Option to Expand by an Additional 432,000 Square Feet
CRG, the real estate arm of Clayco, 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’s already established operations in the area.”
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 is the design-build firm. Its subsidiary Forum Studio Inc. is the architect.
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.
Clayco’s construction began back in March, with the pouring of the footings, foundation and floor slabs already completed. 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.
