Gateway West Commerce Park

Gateway West Commerce Park is a shovel-ready development, owned by Rutherford County and developed for high quality advanced manufacturing, automotive and technology opportunities. The 74-acre park was master-planned to develop a campus-like setting with more than 16 additional acres available for complementary commercial development. Over 12 acres are pre-graded and available to reduce time, risk and cost for your project. A state maintained road runs through the park creating convenient ingress and egress with two park entrances. Robust utilities are located within the park to meet a wide range of industry needs.      

Gateway West Commerce Park is strategically located adjacent to Isothermal Community College and is located within a one hour drive of Greenville, SC, Charlotte, NC and Asheville, NC. Convenient access to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport easily connects you to the world.
