Columbia, SC - Colliers International | South Carolina brokered the sale of a 200,000-square-foot industrial building on approximately 16.5 acres of land located at 1117 Sparkleberry Lane in Columbia to U-Haul. Colliers’ Midlands industrial team of Chuck Salley, SIOR, Dave Mathews, SIOR, and Thomas Beard represented the seller in the transaction.

U-Haul selected the former manufacturing site to be converted into a self-storage facility serving the fast-growing Northeast Columbia area. The manufacturing plant was formally occupied by Amcor, Inc. before expanding its operation to a 650,000-square-foot facility in Blythewood.

“This site works extremely well being repurposed from an industrial site to a retail site. Due to surrounding high traffic, it is difficult for industrial truck traffic to access the site. We think U-Haul’s adaptive re-use of the site is a great opportunity and is appropriate considering the extensive number of retailers in the neighborhood,” said Salley.

Salley, Mathews and Beard are the leading industrial brokerage team in central South Carolina, specializing in leasing, user sales and investment sales of industrial properties. Their multi-faceted platform gives them a unique insight into market conditions for all types of industrial properties.
