News Trinity Partners Announces Shopton Ridge Build to Suit

Apr 8, 2014

Shopton Ridge Build to SuitShopton Ridge is gearing up for a busy 2014 in Southwest Charlotte, the city’s largest and most active industrial submarket. Trinity Capital Advisors and PCCP (in a joint partnership) own four buildings in the industrial park, totaling 422,400 SF of Class A office/warehouse space. An additional 25 acres are ready for development, and the owners are currently marketing a 125,000 – 300,000 SF build-to-suit that’s attracting attention.

“We’ve seen a lot of interest from companies who need to be connected to Charlotte’s transportation hubs and understand the value of our location,” said Sherrie Chaffin, Trinity Capital’s Director of Development. “Shopton provides excellent access to the new intermodal yard, airport, and Charlotte’s major highways, and new amenities like Charlotte Premium Outlets only enhance the submarket’s popularity and momentum.”

The prime corner location at Shopton and Sandy Porter Roads is ideal for companies who need 125,000 – 300,000 SF of space, and the building can be delivered in eight months. Chaffin noted several key differentiators make this build-to-suit unique. “Our location gives the tenant tremendous visibility and signage exposure,” Chaffin said. “We’re able to be both flexible and nimble to accommodate tenant’s specific needs and give them our dedicated time, attention, and expertise.”

The build-to-suit will become a part of Trinity Capital’s existing 422,400 SF, four-building Shopton portfolio, leased by Trinity Partners’ Bill Wood. The park is currently home to a variety of tenants, including Apria Healthcare, Cardinal Health, Rent-A-Center, and Linde Gas. “The buildings at Shopton Ridge are uniquely qualified to accommodate tenants seeking a higher-end presence, with remarkably competitive lease rates for this type of Class A product,” said Wood. “Heavy parking ratios, substantial storefront glass, and shallow bay depth make these buildings well-suited for tenants with heavier office requirements and who want to present a Class A image to their employees and clients.”

Wood recently welcomed Shopton’s newest tenant, Integrated Global Solutions, Inc. to Shopton’s 18-A building. The group leased 16,575 SF of space and was represented by Harry Cole of Percival McGuire Commercial Real Estate.

“As the submarket continues to garner attention, we’re seeing companies who need to be in their new space within a few weeks, not a few months, so we’re upfitting 6,444 sf space in Building 18-A for those tenants on a tighter time frame, ready for immediate move-in,” said Wood.

“We’ve designed and permitted the space, and will install utilities, T-5 lighting, heat, and a new rear exit,” Wood said. “A company can tour the space, sign a lease, and move in 45 days ahead of the normal occupancy timeframe, taking advantage of new HVAC, plumbing, lighting, and office build out.” The space also features one existing dock high loading door and knock-out panel, providing a small tenant with the rare ability to benefit from two dock high loading doors or both dock high and drive-in access.
