Beavercreek, OH— Synergy Building Systems will begin development of a 63,000 square-foot Class A facility designed to meet the growing needs of the defense contractor community supporting Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
“This facility will be designed to accommodate the customized research and development needs of the defense community to execute WPAFB’s mission outside the fence,” said Synergy Building Systems Director of Development John Kopilchack. “Synergy is proud to deliver innovative and collaborative defense space to a marketplace that is currently underserved in the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base area.”
Located in Greene County, the site has access to I-675, is near WPAFB and Wright State University and has all utility infrastructure in place. The site is shovel and pad ready and will target companies in the defense contracting industry needing secure space to support Wright-Patterson Air Force Base’s mission.
“Available secure facilities are extremely undersupplied in the market limiting the amount of work able to be done outside the fence in support of WPAFB,” said the Dayton Development Coalition’s Executive Vice President of Regional Development Julie Sullivan. “Given the current 6% vacancy rate in East Dayton, this new development is critical to allow the defense sector to grow.”
This project was made possible due to the close partnership between the City of Beavercreek, Greene County, JobsOhio, and the Dayton Development Coalition.
“This development will help to solidify the City of Beavercreek’s vision for this area,” said the City of Beavercreek’s Mayor Bob Stone. “The addition of 63,000 square feet of office space to support numerous high-paying office jobs will be a welcome addition to the City’s commercial sector, which will strengthen and diversify our already thriving local economy.”
JobsOhio approved an Ohio Site Inventory Program (OSIP) grant. OSIP offers grants and low-interest loans to support speculative site and building development projects with no identified end user. The primary goal of OSIP is to fill gaps in Ohio’s real estate inventory with real estate targeting near-term sector wins to ensure our state is more competitive for reactive site selection projects.
“Synergy Building Systems continues to strategically develop in Western Ohio, helping the Region capture the economic development opportunity presented by the growth of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, a major economic driver for the Dayton Region,” said J.P. Nauseef,
JobsOhio president and CEO. “This 63,000 square-foot speculative building strengthens Ohio's reputation to meet the high demand for establishing secure spaces critical to attracting contractors that will advance our national defense initiatives.”
