Next month, a Berks County design-build firm will start construction on a business park off Route 222 in Maidencreek Township for small companies.
D&B Elite Construction Group of Sinking Spring will start construction on March 1 on The Business Park at Maidencreek, an estimated $3.4 million business park with 22 units, said Mark Keever, production manager of D&B Elite.
The project will have 11 buildings up to 3,000 square feet each, divided into 22 units with some flexibility, Keever said.
“At the beginning of construction, potential tenants have the option to use the spaces as they see fit,” Keever said. “The option is there for all the other buildings as well.”
Business owners could request smaller or larger spaces depending on their needs, he added.
D&B Elite is collaborating with GSP Properties LLC, the developer of the project.
The park will go up on the former site of Riedel’s Nursery, two vacant, single-family dwellings on two parcels. D&B Elite will demolish the two structures to build the park, Keever said.
The firm plans to finish construction in October.
The tenants would be retail and professional office space users, and the buildings have fully finished interiors for all units. Each unit includes an 8 ft. x 10 ft. garage, which could potentially serve as a space for tenants to accept shipments, he added.
James Koppenhaver of Wyomissing is the architect and Stackhouse Bensinger Inc. of Sinking Spring is the civil engineer.
