DAVIDSON, N.C. – Leading developer, Childress Klein Properties, the Lake Norman Regional Economic Development Corporation (LNREDC) and the Town of Davidson, N.C. are pleased to announce the construction of Two Harbour Place, a 51,000 sq ft, three-story office/retail building located at the northwest corner of Griffith and Jetton streets in Davidson. Well-known paint company, Valspar, will be relocating their Charlotte regional office to the project.
“We are excited to announce an anchor tenant of such great quality to Harbour Place,” said Paul DeVine, partner at Childress Klein Properties. “This validates our efforts to add a different type of product to the Class A office market.”
Construction on Two Harbour Place has already begun and the building is expected to be completed by February 2015. Childress Klein Properties is working with Valspar to design a state-of-the-art training center as part of the project. Valspar will be moving from their current location within Morrison Plantation in Mooresville, N.C.
“We enjoy the culture of Davidson, so when Childress Klein presented this opportunity to be so close to I-77 but also intentionally knit into the town, we knew this was the spot for our new office,“ commented Kelly McGlynn, operations manager for Valspar. “We love that our employees will be able to enjoy walkability to all the great amenities of Davidson mixed with the ability to get employees to work quickly.”
Two Harbour Place is part of the 50-acre mixed-use Harbour Place development begun by Childress Klein in 2007. The development consists of approximately 500,000 sq ft of space that includes a mix of office, retail, residential, hospitality and educational uses. Valspar joins MSC Industrial Direct, Wells Fargo, and Homewood Suites as major tenants in the development. The development is also adjacent to a nature preserve, walking trails and park, with access to Lake Davidson.
“This site is part of the 2004 Northeast Quadrant Master Plan — it is exciting to have a new building in town to fill out this area,” said Town manager Leamon Brice. “We’re hoping this development will provide more employment opportunities and services to the citizens of Davidson.”
“As soon as you get off the interstate (on exit 30), you can tell Davidson is a unique place. Tenants love that this area doesn’t feel like an office park; it’s part of the community,” added DeVine.
“We are pleased that construction will begin soon at Two Harbour Place,” said Ryan McDaniels, executive director of LNREDC. “Valspar is a highly regarded company that will complement our growing collection of consumer and industrial products office locations.”
