With soda already flowing elsewhere in the building, additional construction is now underway on a warehouse in Chesterfield County that was leased earlier this year by a Coke bottling company.

Work kicked off in November on the addition of new offices and other interior facilities within the footprint of Coca-Cola Consolidated’s 350,000-square-foot distribution center in Meadowville Technology Park.

The distribution center is located at 1400 Digital Drive and is owned by an LLC tied to South Carolina-based Red Rock Developments.

The ongoing construction project is expected to finish in spring 2023, Coca-Cola Consolidated spokeswoman Natalie Arrowood said in an email.

The Coke bottling facility was built on the site outlined in red above.

Coca-Cola Consolidated leased the facility and began operations there in July. The facility employs 25 workers and features 36-foot-high ceilings and 185-foot truck courts, according to Arrowood. The company has more than 575 employees in the Richmond region and also operates a bottling facility at 500 Eastpark Court in Henrico County.

Coca-Cola Consolidated bottles and distributes Coke products. The North Carolina firm is publicly traded and independent of the Atlanta-based soda giant Coca-Cola Co.

The general contractor on the Chesterfield project is The Conlan Co., a Georgia-based firm. Arrowood didn’t respond to a question about whether Coca-Cola Consolidated or Red Rock is covering the costs of the interior improvements.

Red Rock bought the 54-acre site where the facility is located in March 2021. It paid $3.2 million to the Chesterfield Economic Development Authority for the land and built the warehouse on spec.

A county news release from that time stated the project was the first speculative development in the industrial park, which is located near Chester.

The facility’s construction cost was estimated at $20 million in March 2021. It’s unclear what the final cost of the construction came to. Red Rock didn’t respond to an email seeking comment.
