The Ware Malcomb Industrial Project, as proposed by Ware Malcomb would develop an approximately 3,417,199-square-foot multi-story high-cube warehouse and related improvements, on approximately 69 acres of privately-owned land. The project site consists of 1 site located on 1 parcel. The proposed facility would have a first-floor footprint of approximately 649,650 square feet (including approximately 33,000 square feet of office space, and break and ancillary space) that would primarily facilitate material handling equipment and warehouse uses. The project’s permanent facilities would include, but are not limited to, perimeter security fencing and nighttime directional lighting at the on-site warehouse and distribution facility, new pavement, curb and gutter, and sidewalk on frontage roads with associated signing and markings, office, break and ancillary space, and Robotic Storage Platforms (RSP) that would house a large, automated storage retrieval system with shelf-like storage units (pods) that are moved by low-profile robots.
