A new 301,000-square-foot speculative manufacturing and distribution facility is under construction on Old Murdock Road in Troutman.
Construction is expected to be completed in late July. The class “A” industrial building will have ceiling heights ranging between 31 to 38 feet; it will be designed to suit warehouse/distribution or light manufacturing/assembly operations. The building will include 76 truck docks, tow drive in doors and have ample amount of auto and trailer parking.
“We are hopeful that it will bring a few new tenants with good paying jobs to Troutman,” said Mayor Terros Young.
Matthew Greer and Brad Cherry with JLL will be representing the private developer to assist in leasing the property.
“Having a large spec building of this size will be beneficial to the entire county. Buildings of this caliber and size are limited in the region and will give us a competitive edge,” said James Mallory, Iredell County Chairman.
“Business is looking at Iredell County,” said Russ Rogerson, executive director of Statesville Regional Development. “This facility is less than 3 miles from the interstate, which is very attractive to distribution and manufacturing clients of all kinds.”
