From the Triangle Business Journal, by Evan Hoopfer
Plans for a new commercial and industrial development that will bring more than 1 million square feet of space to the southern Triangle are becoming clearer.
Charlotte-based Beacon Partners has submitted new plans for Apex Gateway, a 132-acre development that will bring several large speculative facilities to the western edge of Apex. The development sits at the intersection of U.S. Highway 64 and N.C. Highway 751 on the Chatham side of the Chatham/Wake County border.
Beacon Partners previously discussed plans for the project, but now those plans are coming into focus. A site plan submitted with the Town of Apex shows plans to develop five new buildings totaling over 1.2 million square feet of space.
One of those buildings – measuring 163,000 square feet – will be occupied by Durham Coca-Cola Bottling Company. Triangle Business Journal reported last year that the company was relocating its headquarters to a new facility in Chatham County and closing its operations in Durham and Sanford as a result.
