Colliers International industrial brokers complete multiple transactions at 1281 First Street

Columbia, SC – Colliers International | South Carolina’s industrial brokerage team of John Peebles, Dave Mathews, SIOR and Thomas Beard secured two leases for 1281 First Street South in Columbia. The team represents the landlord, Riverview Lane LLC.

1281 First Street South is a 29,000-square-foot industrial building located near Bluff Road and Interstate 77. GMS services, an HVAC repair company represented by Peebles, is a new tenant, occupying 3,400 square feet.

“We were pleased to complete this lease,” said Peebles, a Brokerage Associate in Colliers’ Columbia office. “GMS Services needed to be in a new space by the end of July and we secured their lease within two weeks. We were able to overcome the challenge of having limited options in the Columbia market for their requirements.”

Additionally, McKesson Corporation, whose reach extends to retail pharmacy, the health care supply chain, oncology and specialty care and health care technology, renewed their 9,000-square-foot lease in the building.

Thomas Scarborough, a Property Manager on Colliers’ Real Estate Services (REMS) team, provides property management services for the property. 

Peebles, Mathews and Beard are the leading industrial brokerage team in central South Carolina, working alongside Chuck Salley, SIOR, specializing in leasing, user sales and investment sales of industrial properties. Their multifaceted platform gives them a unique insight into market conditions for all types of industrial properties.
