Neither snow, nor rain, …

Building Number Ten is underway in the SouthPoint Park in Davie County, NC

January 8, 2019

Mocksville, NC (January 8, 2019) Neither snow, nor rain, … have delayed the recent construction of a new 253,052 SF industrial facility at SouthPoint Business Park in Mocksville, NC. A rare December storm resulted in record snows on the job site.  For a southern builder, this much snow was an unusual occurrence on one of their job sites.  Significant rain followed and combined with the snow melt resulted in muddy conditions throughout the job site. Progress slowed briefly but construction continued with the crews working diligently to erect the steel frame prior to the Christmas holiday. Now that the New Year holiday has passed, the steel frame is erected, and the job site is dried out; the roof construction has begun without any delay to the final completion date. The new 253,052 SF facility is being built on “spec” and will be available for lease in Q2, 2019.

A 108,960 SF masonry and steel industrial building within SouthPoint is recently completed and available for lease.  This building is suitable for light manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution.  The Hollingsworth Companies are bullish on the industrial outlook in the Piedmont Triad area and have prepared two additional building sites in SouthPoint for future industrial facilities.  These Build to Suit projects can range in size from 108,960 SF to 259,944 SF.  With this expansion, the SouthPoint Business Park has become one of the largest semi-rural industrial parks in North Carolina.

With 40 years of project experience from Virginia to Mississippi, The Hollingsworth Companies have completed Build to Suit and “Spec” industrial building projects in record time at very competitive prices.  The Hollingsworth Companies have been a long time supporter of the Mocksville community with the introduction of the areas first industrial park in 1997.  “I would like to thank the community for being willing to invest time, effort, and money into being a true partner in making this park successful and I want to thank the entire county for their willingness to help us develop their area,” Hollingsworth said.

Terry Bralley, President of the Davie County Economic Development Commission added “Mocksville-Davie County has been the envy of rural communities in North Carolina for 20 years. Our community has developed the perfect public-private partnership to support an industrial park with speculative buildings bringing 100’s of jobs and new investment to our community.

Hollingsworth believed in our community when others did not. Without industrial buildings in today’s fast paced environment, communities do not have the opportunity to grow future jobs.

The partnership with Hollingsworth, the largest non urban industrial real estate developer and construction firm in the southeast United States continues to creates an incredible winning story for our community, of which we are most grateful.”

The SouthPoint Industrial park is located adjacent to the I-40 between the I-85 and I-77.  This location is ideally suited for manufacturing and distribution companies that support the Charlotte, Winston Salem, and Greensboro MSA’s. The Charlotte MSA has seen strong growth with defense-related industries with four of the nation’s top ten defense contractors locating facilities in the area as well as a strong market for distribution companies located along the I-85 corridor. Greensboro has well established manufacturers in chemicals (pharmaceuticals), transportation equipment, machinery, and fabricated metals.  While the Winston Salem area sees continued expansion in Apparel, Aerospace, and Construction Equipment manufacturing.
