The 301 Grove Reserve property has been 100% filled with an undisclosed pharmaceutical company, according to MDH Partners. (Photo/Provided)MDH Partners of Atlanta has acquired 301 Grove Reserve, a new 158,886-square-foot class-A industrial building in Greenville’s Augusta Grove Business Park.

The building has been leased to an undisclosed pharmaceutical company, joining GE Aviation, Magna, Android, JTEKT, Orbis and KI Logistics. The terms of the acquisition also were undisclosed.

“Greenville-Spartanburg continues to be a target market of ours,” Joe DeHaven, senior managing director of acquisitions at MDH Partners, said in a news release. “Over the past few years we have witnessed Greenville establish itself as a key logistics market in the southeast, which compliments the market’s historically strong manufacturing presence. As a halfway point between Atlanta and Charlotte, we continue to see increased demand from tenants and investors alike, and we’re excited to add another class A asset in the Greenville-Spartanburg market.”

Situated in the Interstate 85 west submarket, the property is 16 miles southwest of Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and 22 miles southwest of the South Carolina Inland Port. The building was constructed in 2021 and the current tenant uses the facility to distribute cosmetic and pharmaceutical goods across the United States.

Wakefield Beasley & Associates, a Nelson company, and Greenville’s BlueWater Civil Design and Harper Corp. collaborated on the project, which was led by the TPA Group of Atlanta, Greenville’s Appian Investments and California-based Passco Companies, according to a 2020 announcement.

DeHaven served as the acquisition lead for MDH Partners. Clay Williams and Grice Hunt with NAI Global represented the seller.

According to CBRE, the Greenville-Spartanburg industrial market saw nearly 2.36 million square feet of space absorbed in the fourth quarter of 2021. Class-A warehouse activity specifically accounted for most of the forward momentum in the fourth quarter. The total footprint of the class-A warehouse market has increased by approximately 2.5 million square feet over the past four quarters, while 6.5 million square feet of class-A warehouse product has been absorbed in the same time frame, according to the release.

The purchase of 301 Grove Reserve increases MDH Partners’ S.C. footprint to approximately 700,000 square feet. The firm previously acquired 1700 Old Grove Road, a 300,645-square-foot building also located in Piedmont, and Wilson Bridge Road, a 219,054-square-foot building in Fountain Inn.
