August 29 - Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) is marketing the Macalloy Intermodal Terminal and Break-bulk Park for private infrastructure investment and terminal operating interests.
Privately-owned by Shipyard Creek Associates LLC, the 115-acre Macalloy Intermodal Terminal in North Charleston is being developed to complement South Carolina's port system, including the adjacent future Navy Base terminal currently being developed and operated by the SCSPA.
JLL says that Macalloy Terminal offers bulk material maritime solutions and is designed for mixed-use purposes, including breakbulk, ro-ro, manufacturing, general cargo and raw material handling.
"The Macalloy terminal represents an extraordinary opportunity for leading maritime interests to become vested in the next generation of US port infrastructure," said Rich Thompson, managing director and head of JLL's Port, Airport and Global Infrastructure (PAGI) group.
"As well as supporting the state's existing terminal system, it will provide additional rail/intermodal solutions that benefit shipping interests in the Charleston Harbour."
Macalloy is located in the industrial hub of North Charleston and boasts direct access to both rail and roadway arteries and has direct access to international shipping lanes.
JLL is serving as development and investment advisor to the owners of Shipyard Creek Ocean Terminals, which includes Macalloy and states that it is working with world leaders in infrastructure investment, terminal operations and marine development to evaluate opportunities regarding operating or investing in the Macalloy terminal. The development is scheduled to be completed in 2014.
