(Indian Land, SC)  CrossRidge Development has signed contracts with top-tier firms in the next step of development for a Class A spec office building at CrossRidge Center in Indian Land, SC.  The announcement comes from CrossRidge Chief Operating Officer Ben Cerullo.

“This announcement is an important step in the full development of CrossRidge Center,” Cerullo said. “Over the past two years we have interviewed numerous property design, development and management companies. Today, I am excited to announce that we have finalized and executed agreements with two of the premier firms in their respective fields.  Perkins Eastman has signed on as the architect and interior designer and Edifice, Inc. has been selected as the general contractor.”

“The Charlotte office of Perkins Eastman is excited to partner with CrossRidge Development on this important next step of the realization of CrossRidge Center.  Our office building design will complement the existing architectural aesthetic and maximize on the magnificent natural beauty of the site to establish CrossRidge as a Class A office park destination,” said Raleigh Cline, AIA, associate principal of Perkins Eastman.  “Our design will plan for future building, landscape and site development that will become the full vision of the live/work/play environment planned by CrossRidge Development.”

Bryan R. Knupp, senior vice president of Edifice said, “The Cerullos have a dynamic vision for the balance of an already beautiful property south of Charlotte.  Edifice is honored to be part of the team that will bring this vision to reality.”

Cerullo added, “Both of these firms possess an unprecedented level of expertise, credibility and passion.  They understand our vision to create a high-end live/work/play environment currently missing from the Lancaster County panhandle.  Along with the Upper Palmetto YMCA (under construction), CrossRidge Center promises to be the go-to destination for individuals and businesses looking for upscale design, dining and amenities.”
