When industry decision-makers are selecting a site for a cold storage facility, a number of important factors come into play. Whether the facility houses products in need of refrigeration, freezing temperatures or both, a reliable primary power supply is a critical requirement of cold-storage warehouse spaces. South Carolina based real estate developer RealtyLink completed the purchase of 69 acres in Camp Hall’s Campus 5, where they’ve already broken ground this year. Quick and easy access to interstates and other major modes of transportation is critical, too. And at next-generation commerce park Camp Hall, located in the highly desirable Charleston, S.C., region, businesses can find all of these vital attributes in an environment renowned for business friendliness and workforce livability.
With a burgeoning population and an average of 34 new people moving to the region daily, Charleston boasts the state’s highest growth rate. Further, experts don’t expect the region’s high growth levels to change any time soon — meaning that an abundant workforce is available and will remain for incoming companies.
