When industrial decision-makers are eyeing potential locations for establishing, growing or relocating their businesses, a long list of critical factors must be considered. And while any business’s specific needs will dictate its optimal location choice, factors such as infrastructure, logistics, site size and availability, commercial property services, economic development incentives, business climate, workforce availability, environmental attributes, and life-enhancing amenities for employees typically land among the most closely examined property characteristics.
Especially for business leaders seeking industrial property in the highly sought-after Charleston, South Carolina, region, one next-generation commerce park — Camp Hall — distinguishes itself in all of these areas and more.

- A dedication to environmental preservation — Since its beginnings, Camp Hall has striven to be an environmentally friendly industrial park. And its eco-focus is set to continue moving forward, with 28% of the campus’s land set aside for natural growth, wildlife habitats, and features focused on ecosystem maintenance and improvement. To further wetlands-preservation efforts in South Carolina, Camp Hall has vowed to restore approximately 365 acres of wetlands impacted by years of intensive tree farming, as well as to permanently protect approximately 1,265 acres of freshwater wetlands. In addition to making the area a better place to live both today and into the future, Camp Hall’s environmental efforts have earned it state recognition via the prestigious Community Star Award from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
