Richland County purchased 1,300+ acres (enough space to build 5.3 million sq.ft. of office space and Class A technology + manufacturing buildings) in Blythewood with plans to develop it into Blythewood Business Park, in an effort to attract big-name companies, create more job opportunities, increase tax revenue + more. A business park of this caliber will allow the county to continue to compete with similar mid-sized metropolitan regions across the Southeast. And for reference in size, the Pentagon is 6.1 million sq.ft., so this business park would only be slightly smaller.
“Class A” buildings are one of the highest quality buildings in the office building market, typically having the highest rent – which attracts the highest quality tenants. They’re well-located, have good access + are professionally managed.
Blythewood Business Park will be accessible from two interchanges on I-77 (a major win for traffic flow in the area) and will include green spaces, natural areas and have buffers so it doesn’t interfere with the adjacent community.
