Columbia, SC – Weston, Inc., an Ohio-based industrial real estate owner, has acquired a vacant 182,160-square-foot industrial building at 3240 Brittain Drive in Newberry, SC. 

“Weston sees this property in Newberry as a value-add investment and is planning several improvements which will increase the functionality of the property for a new user,” said Eileen McConville, Asset Manager for Weston, Inc. “We know that Newberry County will attract a healthy pool of prospects to lease the building as it is a great county for doing business and the quality of life is excellent.”

Colliers’ industrial brokerage team of Chuck Salley, SIOR, Dave Mathews, SIOR, Thomas Beard and John Peebles represented Weston in the purchase and is currently marketing the property for lease. Grant Butler from Colliers’ Real Estate Management Services (REMS) division has been retained as the Property Manager. 

Weston has also hired LCK, Colliers | South Carolina’s project management affiliate, to oversee and manage the capital improvements at the property to prepare the building for occupancy.

“There is a scarcity of rail-served buildings in South Carolina, especially buildings with a spur and switch in place,” said Salley, Vice President and Director of Industrial Brokerage Team in Colliers’ Columbia office. ”In addition to being rail-served, 3240 Brittain Drive has excellent truck loading facilities, trailer storage and outdoor storage. 

3240 Brittain Drive is now part of Weston’s Southeast Industrial Properties portfolio. Weston is a Cleveland-based commercial real estate owner and developer with nearly 7 million square feet of assets in South Carolina, making it one of the largest privately held industrial landlords in the state.
