The existing 500,280-square-foot speculative building developed by CRG was the largest ever built in the Greenville-Spartanburg market. Expansion is currently underway to increase the total footprint to ±1.32 million square feet to suit the tenant’s needs, making the finished building one of the largest distribution centers in the market.
Greenville-Spartanburg – The building at Inland 85 Logistics Center is expected to deliver late 2019 and is the first of several master-planned speculative projects in the park encompassing a total of 325 acres. Proposed phase II and III speculative Cubes buildings within the park will add an additional ±2 million square feet near the Inland Port when complete.
The user is a Fortune100 company with large-scale distribution needs that will benefit from proximity to the Inland Port Greer less than two miles away, access to the Port of Charleston and more than 94 million consumers within a one-day drive.
The building at Inland 85 Logistics Center is the latest in CRG’s popular “Cubes” series, one of six currently underway nationwide. The Cubes is a speculative development brand conceived of by CRG, wherein each building must adhere to a set of guidelines including environmental responsibility, access to major transportation, state-of-the-art design and construction, 3D conceptualization, zero tolerance safety programs, modern truck docking, ample trailer storage and workforce availability.

Garrett Scott, SIOR, John Montgomery and Brockton Hall of Colliers International in Spartanburg were brokers of both the land purchase and leasing of the building. They advised the development team at CRG through site selection, land acquisition, related governmental affairs, economic incentives, site planning, market analysis, construction and tenancy.
CRG managed the project through its Southeast Regional division led by Senior Vice President, Michael Demperio. The development company also worked with building partner Clayco Construction, architecture and design firm BatesForum, civil engineer Thomas and Hutton and civil and site contractor, Clary Hood, Inc. to design and execute the structure.
“With record container volumes at the Inland Port Greer being continuously set, the health of the distribution network and supporting infrastructure bodes well for our economy and the future of developments like “The Cubes” being built here”, says Garrett Scott, Vice President of Colliers International in Spartanburg, “CRG’s vision has been rewarded – it built the first large speculative building offering expandability in excess of 1 million square feet and now has a tenant that needed exactly that. It was an incredibly intuitive and visionary play by the developer that has paid off and will set the tone for future industrial developments in the Upstate.”
The finished concrete tilt-wall building will encompass nearly 31 acres under roof and will feature cross-dock orientation with 36’ clear heights, ample trailer storage and car parking, 215 truck dock doors and 4 drive-in doors.
