April 15, 2020

Columbia, South Carolina (April 15, 2020) – Red Rock Developments, along with NAI Columbia, is pleased to announce Sandy Run Industrial Park. The venture will be located in the bustling counties of Lexington and Calhoun, which have seen continuous growth in their industrial markets. Sandy Run features direct access from Highway 21 on Interstate 26 (Exit 119) and is located near the Amazon Distribution Center, Nephron Pharmaceuticals and the Columbia Metropolitan Airport. The park is strategically positioned close to Interstate 77 and I-20, allowing for a quick and efficient distribution process for a multitude of manufacturing purposes.

Red Rock Developments’ CEO, Bill Smith, is excited about what Sandy Run Industrial Park has to offer. “The park is near the Charleston port, Volvo’s new manufacturing facility in the Lowcountry and BMW in the Upstate. The location, coupled with the excellent highway system of the Midlands, makes this an excellent option for companies looking to locate in a Class A industrial park within the great labor shed of South Carolina. On behalf of our investors, strategic partners and service providers, we want to thank the South Carolina Department of Commerce, and both Calhoun and Lexington Counties for their partnership, and we look forward to making Sandy Run Industrial Park the preeminent location for industrial tenants for years to come.”

"NAI Columbia is proud to partner with Red Rock Developments to market sites for sale and lease in Sandy Run Industrial Park," said Jonathan Good, CEO of NAI Earle Furman. "We are fully vested and confident that Sandy Run Industrial Park is the best location as a Class-A Industrial Park to serve Columbia and the Midlands market."

Sandy Run is a ±760.9 acre, fully entitled industrial park with access to all utilities. Red Rock Developments is the exclusive developer for build-to-suit and speculative buildings and plans to complete over 5.9 million square feet of Class-A Industrial space in the park.

"Even as we deal with the severe but temporary measures related to the Coronavirus, Calhoun County looks forward to the great potential of the development in Sandy Run Industrial Park once the virus is no longer a threat. The future assembly of industry in this park will complement the new Zeus plant, a state-of-the-art facility providing high paying jobs and significant tax base to Calhoun County,” said Councilman, John Nelson, Calhoun County District 3. “The other industries that will locate in Sandy Run Industrial Park in the coming years will provide great jobs for our children and grandchildren while serving to keep our taxes low. We will soon get beyond the intense pain associated with the virus. Once that occurs, the collective development in Sandy Run Industrial Park will be the centerpiece that leads Calhoun County into its next period of fiscal strength and prosperity for all our residents.”

“The Sandy Run Industrial Park is the result of the cooperation between regional governmental relationships and private partnerships,” said Lexington County Council Chairman Scott Whetstone. “We look forward to having Calhoun County as a strategic partner, and we celebrate knowing that this park will have the benefits of creating jobs and adding tax base for both of our communities.”

"On behalf of the County of Calhoun, Calhoun County Council and Administration, we welcome and are proud to have the Calhoun Land Investors, Red Rock Development, NAI Columbia and Alliance Consulting Engineering invest in and promote the Sandy Run Industrial Park in the County of Calhoun. This investment is a testament to our location, skilled workforce and pro-business environment," said Administrator and Director of Economic Development, John E. McLauchlin, County of Calhoun.
