In 2013, CM Black completed construction of an 88,527-square-foot, class “A” speculative industrial building at 4541 Enterprise Drive in Concord, NC’s International Business Park. The project, a co-venture between C.M. Black, The Nolim Group, the real estate developer behind the International Business Park, and CESI Land Development Services, was designed by BJW Architecture.

The building fills a void of available manufacturing and warehouse space in the Cabarrus County region, and was developed with future expansion capabilities in mind.  Property features include expandable space up to 141,000-square-feet, built to suit office area, 28’ minimum ceiling clearance and the potential for LEED certification.
