Jasper opens new
RIDGELAND, SC-Jasper County leaders gathered at Cypress Ridge Industrial Park in Ridgeland on November 14 for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the 40,000 SF speculative Cypress Ridge Industrial Building to attract new industries to the area. Located at 4427 Grays Highway on Highway 278, the expandable building is situated 5 minutes from Exit 21 on Interstate 95, 35 minutes from the Port of Savannah, GA, and 80 minutes from the Port of Charleston, SC.
Construction of the building was completed within five months of the groundbreaking last June 14. "Jasper County's location, with I-95 and easy access to the Ports of Charleston and Savannah, creates a perfect situation for manufacturing, assembly and distribution," said SCA President and CEO Danny Black. "However, many companies are looking for existing buildings as a way to shorten their start-up time and to begin operation more quickly.
An expandable industrial building like this one, which can be finished to suit the company, is ideal for attracting these companies." Expandable to 98,000 square feet, the industrial speculative building will be close to the aerospace hubs surrounding Boeing in Charleston, South Carolina, and Gulfstream in Savannah, Georgia. The Cypress Ridge Industrial Park, where the building is being constructed, is a S.C. Certified Site, which means all of the due diligence has been completed at the park, including cultural, historic and geotechnical studies.
The building is being constructed through a partnership among SouthernCarolina Regional Development Alliance, Jasper County, and Santee Cooper. Key partners include the S.C. Department of Commerce, Palmetto Electric Cooperative, Inc., the Town of Ridgeland, St. Peter's Parish/Jasper County Public Facilities Corp. and Cypress Ridge Business and Industrial Design and Review Committee. The building was designed by Carlisle Associates and constructed by Brunson Construction.
