Fort Mill SC keeps growing. The new Koll Development Company 150,000 square foot Intellicenter building in Fort Mill SC is finished and has been turned over to Daimler Trucks of North America. Freightliner LLC changed it corporate name last January to Daimler Trucks of North America.
Last October Daimler Trucks announced the move of its 340 job sales and marketing division from Portland OR to Fort Mill, SC. As of the company deadline for relocation decisions last January, 118 Portland Daimler employees are making the move to Fort Mill, SC. I took a look at Daimler’s job opening website. Only 14 positions were listed as available. Daimler had a job fair in March so many of the non relocating positions may have been filled.
The Daimler Trucks sales and marketing new office is located on Deerfield Drive near the Gold Hill and I-77 interchange. Here is the last picture from the construction job site camera of new building taken on May 21st.
You can see the exterior of the building and landscaping is complete. Work left to do is focused on the interior office set up including furniture. Daimler Trucks expects operations to begin in the new offices the first part of August.
What is the latest about the Daimler Trucks HQ move from Portland to the York County area? I searched for press releases and articles. I found a couple May articles in the Charlotte Business Journal about the move. Daimler Trucks has an option on 400 acres on the west side of Lake Wylie near the Big Allison Creek area. The articles claim Daimler Trucks corporate office campus would be part of the Crescent Resources or Allison Creek Partners 2,300 acre master planned development project in York County on the Allison Creek. A Daimler Trucks spokesperson confirmed they were working with local landowners, developers and York County SC officials on the project but no final decisions have been made.
The Allison Creek master planned development plan is estimated to contain almost 4.4 million square feet of office space and a potential of 3,500 homes. If Daimler Trucks would be relocated to the development, the plan would allow for many support companies to relocate near the corporate campus. The over plan would almost triple the current York County multitenant space if and when finished.
