CrossRidge Signs Agreements for the Design and Development of a State-of-the-Art Class A Office Building in Indian Land, SC
(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.
Earlier, during the joint groundbreaking of the Upper Palmetto YMCA and CrossRidge Center on May 31st, Cerullo announced plans to develop Class A spec office space as part of the CrossRidge Center complex.
“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.”
CrossRidge Center plans to break ground on the project in Q1 2020, with occupancy in Q4. For more information, visit www.crossridgecenter.com.

(Indian Land, SC – May 31, 2019) In a rare move, CrossRidge Center today announced plans to develop Class-A spec office space just across the NC border in Indian Land, SC. The announcement was made by Ben Cerullo, COO of CrossRidge Development, during the joint groundbreaking of the Upper Palmetto YMCA and CrossRidge Center.
“We know this is a unique initiative in the world of development,” said Cerullo. “But this decision demonstrates our confidence in the region’s continued growth and CrossRidge’s ability to position itself to attract regional/national companies looking for the type of aesthetics and amenities we offer. And the parcel we’ve selected for this build is one of the premier sites on campus, with the best road access, ample parking, breathtaking views, and proximity to the CrossRidge Conference and Event Center.”
Bryan Tuttle, consultant for the project, couldn’t agree more. “This initiative by CrossRidge Development makes a bold statement to the regional office market, that they are ready, willing and able to step up to the unprecedented demand in the South Charlotte market for new Class-A office space. The biggest problem in recent times is not the demand for space, but the sheer availability of space. This especially is true in the Upstate of South Carolina and Lancaster County, in particular, where the business environment and quality of life is so attractive. CrossRidge wanted to respond in advance to this growing market demand in the Highway 521 business corridor just South of Ballantyne, especially as the YMCA moves toward completion and prospective tenants look to call CrossRidge home.”
CrossRidge Center currently boasts one of the most significant office buildings in all of Lancaster and York counties. The 120,000 sq. ft. anchor tenant is central to the development. Visitors are welcomed by a beautiful monumented entry drive and flag court, surrounded by a scenic lake, fountains, bridges, sidewalks, and landscaping unrivaled in the region.
Interviews with architects and engineers are being finalized now. CrossRidge Center anticipates breaking ground on the project in late 2019, with a Fall 2020 grand opening. For more information, visit www.crossridgecenter.com.
