Greenville Industrial Real Estate Market Overview
Greenville, SC, is located in the heart of the fastest-growing region in the U.S along the I-85 corridor linking Atlanta, GA, and Charlotte, NC. Almost 1.5 million people live in the Upstate South Carolina area, half of them in the labor pool. Companies can reach an astounding 130 million consumers within a one-day drive. Market growth is being driven by industries re-thinking their supply chain and the re-birth of onshore manufacturing.
CenterPoint’s portfolio in Greer, SC, gives companies unparalleled access to regional and international transportation infrastructure. In addition to proximity to I-85, South Carolina Highways 14, 80, 101, 290 and 357 all run through Greer. It’s also just 5 miles from the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport.
CenterPoint was instrumental in building Greer’s South Carolina Inland Port (SCIP), a critical intermodal hub exclusively serviced by the Norfolk Southern Railroad. The SCIP has not only been a boon for our tenants in Greer, but it also changed the regional shipping landscape by increasing international freight movements from one of the busiest container ports in the nation, the Port of Charleston, to companies throughout the Southeast.
