MINT HILL – Construction has begun on the first two office/warehouse buildings at Clear Creek Business Park, according to Nance Companies and MPV Properties.
The firms are developing 40,000 square feet in the initial phase of the project, which they believe will attract businesses looking for a spacious setting and quick access to Charlotte via I-485, U.S. 74, and N.C. 24/27.
Building A totals 16,000 square feet and is fully leased to E.R. Plumbing Services, which is moving from Matthews Executive Plaza. E.R. Plumbing Services has grown under the leadership of owner Dave Parker by using dispatch technology to reach customers.
“With the additional space, E.R. Plumbing Services will be able to increase inventory of parts, appliances and heavy equipment, all of which require significant warehouse storage space. The company also intends to provide top-notch training and expand services,” Parker said. “Increased capacity means improved ability to serve the Charlotte community.”
E.R. Plumbing Services has provided plumbing service since 1997.
Building B is a speculative project totaling 24,000 square feet that can accommodate multiple tenants. Both buildings front Allen Station Drive and will be constructed of metal with brick masonry and windows lining the front and sides. Available suites range from 2,400 to 12,000 square feet.
Roads and infrastructure at Clear Creek are already in place. Development activity near the business park has increased with the recent opening of Novant Health’s new hospital and Cresswind’s community off Albemarle Road.
“The vast majority of industrial land in Mecklenburg County has been developed, and we feel there isn’t much new product in the flex market, so we thought it was the right time to develop a spec building in conjunction with E.R. Plumbing,” said Bailey Patrick of MPV.
Completion of the first two buildings is slated to occur this summer, and several other land sales and build-to-suit projects at the park are also in the works.
Billy Thomas and Bailey Patrick Jr. represent the speculative building owners. Frank Larsen, of CBRE, represents the remaining acreage owner. Cummings Construction is general contractor. Chris Hope Engineering is architect and civil engineer.
