The 100,000 square foot speculative building under construction on the east end of the Village of Carey is receiving its final touches. The building is situated in the newly created Arrowhead Commerce Park that encompasses the former location of a nursing home that was demolished last year, and adjacent open acreage. Arrowhead consists of nearly 30 acres of land with an interior road that connects East Findlay Street (SR 199/103) to Elm Hill Road (TH 98).
Village utilities were extended and now service the entire industrial park, and a 44-inch drainage tile was installed during development to handle storm water runoff from the new spec building and potential future facilities in the immediate area. Sites for future facilities and a possible extension of the speculative building have also been detailed.
For the building itself only a few items remain to be completed including the installation of block and windows at the northwest corner of the building that will create a visually appealing façade that serves as the main entrance. Outside a 65+ space parking lot will soon be poured as well as various walkways and landscaping. Inside, the facility will remain without a concrete floor to suit the varying requirements of potential users and layout of the interior space. Sprinklers will also be left uncompleted until a future occupant’s needs are determined.
Features of the building include: 8 truck docks located at the center rear of the facility, 2 drive-in doors at each end of the rear side, 28.6’ tall ceilings (floor to joist), 50’ column spacing, and insulated walls and ceilings. Temporary electric services the facility; again until the future occupant’s needs are determined.
Close proximity to 4-lane US-23 and the availability of all utilities on site including high-speed fiber connectivity greatly contribute to the marketability of the new speculative building and industrial park. The WCOED continues to promote the site through the Ohio InSite and Location One database systems as well as through local leads and its NW Ohio JobsOhio partner. Vaughn Industries also recently partnered with a broker to help market the asset.
