CONCORD — The Silverman Group plans to construct a 108,000-square foot speculative building with a projected investment of approximately $7 million. The flex building will be located on a 12-acre parcel on Aviation Boulevard near the Concord Regional Airport.  The flex space will feature a 32’ clear height and can be subdivided.

The Silverman Group has already constructed two spec buildings, totaling 552,000 square feet, in the Concord Airport Business Park. They recently purchased another 136 acres on Derita Road for future development. The company built the facility that houses the Amazon distribution center.

“We are pleased to continue our successful partnership with the city of Concord, Cabarrus County and Cabarrus Economic Development. The support from the community is important to our collective success in bringing industry and jobs to the area,” Blake Silverman said. “We believe there is demand for higher end building product, with enhanced exterior finishes.”

CONCORD, N.C. —

There is a boom of businesses from across the country looking to move to Concord.

City officials told anchor Allison Latos that creating buildings for warehouse or industrial use is their biggest tool to recruit companies. 

Latos got a look at the latest project in the works, the types of companies already interested and how all this growth is fueling the airport, too.
 
The land near Concord Regional Airport will soon transform from an empty field to a 108,000-square-foot building for new companies to call home. 
 
Chris Skibinski is marketing the land for the developer.
 
The area is on the brink of becoming an industrial corridor because it is so close to Interstates 85 and 485, he said.
 
Amazon already employs several hundred people at their distribution facility at the land near the airport and companies across the country are expressing interest.
 
“Specifically, we've talked to retailers, consumer goods companies, aerospace companies, food manufacturers, electronics companies,” Skibinski said.
 
Work is finishing up on a 152,000-square-foot building where a manufacturing company from an unidentified California company is expected to move.
 
Concord Mayor Scott Padgett said the construction is crucial to the city's ability to compete.
 
“They're shells so they can convert to the needs of the client,” Padgett said. “It is really, really important. If you don't have them, you're behind.”
 
An increase in industrial companies is bringing increased air traffic at Concord Regional, too.

Commercial flights are packed and Padgett expects Allegiant Air will add even more destinations.
 
The land won't be the last development because there are bigger plans, Skibinksi said.
 
“We've got on the drawing board potentially a phase 3 that would be another 1.5 million square feet of development,” he said.
