Developers expect to begin construction on a 373,100-square-foot speculative building in Dillon County later this year as part of an effort to connect warehouse and distribution space to transportation facilities with access to the Port of Charleston.
Commercial broker CBRE will be marketing the new property located 1 mile from the inland port in Dillon County. The company said Philadelphia-based Equus Capital Partners Ltd. is developing the 95 Inland Port Logistics Center with Class A warehouse and logistics space.
“Inland Port Dillon allows cargo owners to have increased flexibility and gain efficiency on their inland transportation expense,” CBRE Senior Vice President Bob Barrineau said in a news release.
He said the property’s location, with access to Interstate 95, would be attractive to importers and exporters looking for direct access to the Port of Charleston by CSX rail and by truck.
“South Carolina has made a substantial investment by constructing the Inland Port Dillon,” said Dan DiLella Jr., senior vice president of Equus Capital Partners. “Equus believes in the inland port model and the need for users to want to utilize this type of facility to service the growing population throughout South Carolina and North Carolina.”
Inland Port Dillon opened in 2018 inside a 3,400-acre industrial site. The S.C. Ports Authority, which owns and operates Inland Port Dillon, also operates Inland Port Greer in the Upstate.
