The Nash County Board of Commissioners has announced plans for the construction of a 62,500-square-foot shell building in the Middlesex Corporate Centre and a 100,000-square-foot shell building at the county’s I-95 NC 97 industrial site.

The Middlesex shell building is the second one to be constructed following the sale of the first building in April to SinnovaTek, a Raleigh-based food-processing company. The 368-acre Middlesex Corporate Centre is located immediately off U.S. 264 and is an ideal location for companies to grow and thrive in Nash County and the Research Triangle region.

The 100,000-square-foot shell building will be located on Nash County’s 142-acre I-95 NC 97 industrial site. The 97 site is located immediately off I-95 and is ideal for logistics and distribution companies. The site can accommodate the development of a one million square-foot building.

“These are two very exciting projects for Nash County. Both properties have available utilities, and now two customizable shell buildings,” said Robbie Davis, Chairman of the Nash County Board of Commissioners. “Industrial shell buildings allow us to respond to companies and projects looking to land in eastern North Carolina and the Research Triangle region immediately, as we work to bring projects, investment, and quality jobs to our community.”

Once completed, both new shell buildings will be ready to welcome a company looking for a pre-built facility to begin operations quickly. The adjoining lots also provide additional space for the company’s future expansion and operational needs.

“The industrial segment of the real estate market currently has demands for existing high-quality properties easily customized to fit specific needs and uses. The demands are to deliver a finished product in a much shorter timeline than developing a property from scratch in order to meet the ever-changing global business climate,” said Andy Hagy, Nash County Director of Economic Development. “The 62,500 and 100,000 square-foot shell buildings put Nash County in a more competitive position to respond to industrial prospects who offer tremendous opportunities for quality job growth, innovation, and tax base expansion.”
