McShane Construction Co. says it has broken ground for the development of 500 Pittsburg Ave., an industrial project located in Richmond. Owned by Black Creek Group, the development will feature a 481,500-sq. ft. distribution center on a 34-acre site near the intersection of Pittsburg Avenue and Richmond Parkway.
HPA is serving as the project’s architect of record for the project, which is slated for completion in November 2021.
The structure will include concrete tiltwall panel exterior with storefront windows, 36-foot clear heights, 84 truck doors, four drive-in doors, seven-inch concrete slab floors and ESFR sprinklers.
For the first phase of the project, McShane completed extensive ground improvements, including wick drains, deep dynamic compaction and grading. The company will also widen Richmond Parkway and Pittsburg Avenue and add turn lanes and traffic signals
