Spec Building Coming Near Dillon Inland Port

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Spec Building Coming Near Dillon Inland Port

Dillon SpecA new logistics center is coming to a location near Inland Port Dillon. Leasing has been assigned at a new 373,100-square-foot speculative industrial development called the 95 Inland Port Logistics Center. The center is located in Dillon County, located just one mile from Inland Port Dillon.

CBRE’s Bob Barrineau and Brendan Redeyoff, as well as Palmetto Commercial Real Estate’s Drew Chaplin, are spearheading leasing efforts at the property.

“Inland Port Dillon allows cargo owners to have increased flexibility and gain efficiency on their inland transportation expense,” Barrineau said. “We’re very excited to market the closest spec building to the Inland Port. The property’s strategic location and proximity to the Inland Port is going to generate substantial interest from importers and exporters taking advantage of direct access to the Port of Charleston via CSX rail, lower cost of empty containers, demurrage savings and reducing their carbon footprint.”

Industrial Boomtowns Rise In Unlikely Places

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Industrial Boomtowns Rise In Unlikely Places

crane sign copyRail has always been the economic backbone of Dillon. Throughout the 20th century, trains shipped tobacco and cotton from this South Carolina town to processing plants up and down arteries on the Eastern Seaboard. By the 1990s, the tobacco industry was in sharp decline, and the trains to and from Dillon slowed to a crawl. Nearly 30 years later, trains are active once more, hauling cargo containers 160 miles from Charleston — one of the South’s busiest ports — into a new $50M distribution hub called Inland Port Dillon.

Once a forgotten town in the heart of the Deep South, Dillon, with a population of 6,604, is now overtaking cities more than 40 times its size to become an anchor of America’s burgeoning warehouse and e-commerce fulfillment center explosion — a $24B construction surge that is being brought into the U.S. mainstream. Dillon is reaping those dollars, but it is far from alone. From Fremont, Nebraska, to Locust Grove, Georgia, to Front Royal, Virginia — all communities with populations less than 30,000 — the next industrial boomtowns are springing up in seemingly unexpected places across rural America. These distribution hubs are attracting newfound population and myriad development opportunities that never would have been possible in the last decade.
