MeadWestvaco’s Impact on Summerville is Significant

Tucked away off U.S. Interstate 26, between the Summerville and Jedburg exits, stands a monument to both speed and size.

Nearly completed in less than a year, the sprawling building has a perimeter of roughly one mile and about 1.1 million square feet of storage space beneath the 40-foot roof. The first half of the mammoth structure was opened about three months ago, when tenant TBC Corp. moved in and began off-loading tens of thousands of tires that will be delivered to its retail stores and other customers. The import giant will be getting the keys to the back end of its new warehouse any day now.

The completion of the distribution center marks the first major local real estate project to spring from the soil under an up-and-coming division of a longtime Lowcountry employer: MeadWestvaco Corp. At the same time, the super-size warehouse is a symbol of the Fortune 500 company’s resurrected real estate ambitions.
