MEBANE — Samet Corp., developer of the N.C. Commerce Park, plans to build a 134,000-square-foot spec building on the site.
The new building would joint three others there: the Wal-Mart and Lidl distribution centers, and Prescient.
The new building will go where the current Chandler Concrete plant sits. Samet is preparing a new site at the center for the plant.
The plant was initially temporary, but Chandler decided to stay at the park. The Mebane Planning Board agreed to recommend rezoning the property Tuesday, April 12, from light manufacturing to heavy manufacturing.
Samet Director of Development Brian Hall said the spec building will be representative of the other industrial spec bindings that the developer has built in Alamance County since the 1980s.
It should be finished by fourth quarter.
Samet also has constructed buildings at the N.C. Industrial Center in Mebane.
Hall says that since 2001, Samet has developed 350 of 600 acres available in the park and center, and has constructed 2.75 million square feet, creating about 1,300 jobs and $180 million in the tax base.
