BIRMINGHAM– Birmingham-based Graham & Company and Sunbelt Paper & Packaging announced on Wednesday, Nov. 10 plans for a 216,000 square-foot state-of-the art distribution facility located in Calera.
Sunbelt Paper & Packaging, one of the largest privately-owned packaging and industrial supply companies in the Southeast, will anchor the project occupying approximately 108,000 square feet in the building. The remaining 108,000 SF will be available for lease with the facility estimated to be fully operational by the third quarter of 2022.
The project is significant as it represents Graham & Co’s first speculative development in the Calera/southern submarket since completing Shelby Commerce Park in 2007.
From 2000 to 2007, Graham & Co developed more than 1,800,000 square feet of distribution space in Calera.
“We’re excited that the market’s demand for additional distribution space has allowed us the opportunity to partner with Sunbelt and further serve the needs of Shelby County,” says Henry V. Graham II, Vice President of Development at Graham & Co.
