The 476,280-square-foot spec project is the newest building at Fort Prince Industrial Park at 1090 Fort Prince Boulevard, a 47-acre site just west of Interstate 85. The center is ready for immediate occupancy and leasing options remain available for the full building or space down to 119,070 square feet, according to a news release from Hunt Midwest.

Fort Prince Logistics Center also features 48 dock positions with 36-foot clear height, mechanical dock equipment, seven-inch concrete slab flooring, spec office space, and cross-dock configuration. The center is fully equipped with 189 surface parking stalls expandable to 385, up to 125 tractor trailer parking stalls and a 135-foot-deep truck court.

Fort Prince Logistics Center is marketed for its proximity to Interstate 85, Inland Port Greer and Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. It also is near Walmart’s $450 million investment in a 720,000-square-foot grocery distribution facility in Lyman, which is expected to open in 2024.

“This location sits perfectly at the intersection of a growing manufacturing and logistics corridor with a highly skilled workforce,” Mike Bell, Hunt Midwest senior vice president for commercial real estate, said in the news release. “The billions of dollars investment by BMW, Walmart, FedEx and the Inland Port Greer in this part of the Upstate are a testament to how important this region is to the economy along the entire East Coast.”

The logistics center in Greenville is one of two under development by Hunt Midwest, the other being a 200-acre site in Anderson County.

Leasing for the project is being handled by John Montgomery, Garrett Scott, Brockton Hall and Dillon Swayngim of Colliers.

Fort Prince Logistics Center is part of Hunt Midwest’s plan to expand into the South from its traditional territory in the Midwest and Texas.

The company’s second Upstate development, Evergreen Logistics Park, is located on more than 200 acres off Interstate 85 just southwest of Greenville in Anderson County. The first building there will create 259,000-square-feet of industrial space and is nearing completion, the release said. The more than 200-acre site can accommodate either two more cross-dock buildings or 1 million square feet for a build-to-suit user. In all, Hunt Midwest plans more than 2 million additional square feet of industrial space at projects across the Palmetto State in the coming years, the company said.
