LINCOLNTON, North Carolina – (Feb. 21, 2024) Crescent Communities, a nationally recognized market-leading real estate investor, developer, and operator of mixed-use and industrial communities, announced today that construction has started on AXIAL Midway 321, the fourth project in the Charlotte region slated to open under the AXIAL brand.

Located conveniently off Highway 321 in the Lincoln County Industrial Park, AXIAL Midway 321 will offer one rear-load building totaling approximately 175,000 square feet, complete with 133 employee and 17 trailer parking spaces on a 25-acre lot. Its strategic location midway between I-85 and I-40 off Highway 321 will allow tenants efficient access to the Southeast’s major transportation corridors, including I-40, I-85, and the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, currently ranked as the seventh-busiest airport in the world for air traffic.

"We’re excited to begin work on the latest addition to Crescent Communities’ dynamic Charlotte portfolio,” said Bryan Blythe, managing director at Crescent Communities. “With an advantageous location and a robust roster of corporate neighbors like FedEx, Medline, Bosch, and TMS, AXIAL Midway 321 presents a prime opportunity for businesses to thrive in a world-class industrial space.”

Featuring a 32-foot clear height and 50 dock-high doors, AXIAL Midway 321 will provide flexibility to accommodate multiple local, regional, and national distribution tenants in addition to light manufacturing and assembly users. The building will also include around 2,800 square feet of speculative office space, LED lighting in the warehouse, and multiple pit levelers.

The groundbreaking of AXIAL Midway 321 marks the latest project in Crescent Communities’ robust industrial portfolio, including the continued construction at AXIAL Rapid Commerce in Charlotte, NC, AXIAL Bonds Farm in Concord, NC, AXIAL Gateway 95 in Richmond, VA, and AXIAL Southgate 77 in Rock Hill, SC, and the completion of AXIAL 301 Manatee in Bradenton, FL, and AXIAL Crosspoint in Greenville, SC, collectively solidifying the company’s position as a leader in industrial development.
