(JAMES CITY COUNTY) – Lovett Industrial, the Houston-based real estate investment firm, closed on 328 acres of land in James City County, Virginia in late April 2023 with plans to develop Enterprise Logistics Park, an approximate 2.2 million square foot business park uniquely positioned to capture growing demand from the Port of Virginia.
The business park will be constructed to industry leading specifications and will be designed to accommodate a variety of building sizes ranging from approximately 100,000-1,000,000 square feet. The groundbreaking of the initial phase is anticipated for the first quarter of 2024, with design currently underway. Upon completion, Enterprise Logistics Park will be the largest speculative industrial development ever completed on the I-64 corridor between Norfolk and Richmond.
Located in the primary transit corridor between the Port of Virginia and I-95, Enterprise Logistics Park also features immediate access to I-64, where a substantial lane expansion project is currently underway. Planned infrastructure improvements will include a major collector road, which will enable efficient ingress and egress from the property, along with major utility infrastructure capable of accommodating a variety of uses including manufacturing uses. Additionally, the park will feature recreational amenities for employees working within the park along with retail and convenience amenities that will benefit the trade area.
Ben Swift, Senior Associate at Lovett Industrial commented, “The Hampton Roads industrial market has some of the strongest fundamentals in the country. With the economic engine of the Port of Virginia investing heavily in their operations and capacity coupled with the billions of dollars of infrastructure improvements expanding I-64, we believe this region is positioned well for future growth and a strong demand for industrial space. We are excited to partner with James City County and the Port of Virginia on this project.”
Marketing and leasing efforts for Enterprise Logistics Park will be exclusively handled by Geoff Poston and Ellis Colthorpe at Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer.
