Work is moving forward on the county’s newest industrial park.
Cherokee County Building Official Donald Elder said developers have submitted preliminary site plans for spec buildings at the Axis I-85 industrial park.
Elder said the preliminary site plans show two spec buildings as well as the location of a retention pond.
The next step will be for the developer to submit building plans.
Atlanta-based Tamarack Investments is developing the project on a 337-acre site near Bommer Industries and Whelchel Road.
Other work at the site is ongoing as well with Gaffney Board of Public Works officials awaiting Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for a 2-mile sewer line at the park.
Last year, Cherokee County Council gave the project a boost with passage of a tax incentive package.
The land now qualifies for the agricultural use exemption, which typically means the land is taxed between $1 and $1.50 an acre compared to the 4 and 6 percent assessments for residential and commercial parcels.
Tamarack Investments LLC, a privately held real estate firm based in Atlanta, is the project’s developer. Consulting and engineering services were provided by Atwell LLC of Marietta, Ga., which certified the site.
