SG Blocks Announces Updates for Its Wholly Owned Subsidiary SGB Development Corporation
The Company has released growth updates for SGB Development Corp. sites and manufacturing campus updates
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SG Blocks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“SG Blocks” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures, announced site updates of SGB Development Corporation (“SGB DevCorp”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, focused on real estate development, in addition to expansion updates of the Company’s manufacturing campus footprint.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer to our shareholders an update on SGB DevCorp’s growth and recent developments. Earlier this month, we published to our website the land appraisals for three SGB DevCorp sites and our McLean & St. Marys factories,” Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks explained. “Given the assessed value of those properties, along with our recent site and factory updates below, we are pleased with our real estate development performance and are excited about our future growth as the Company continues to capitalize on its record backlog of approximately $765 million with 4,000+ units to be built.”
Lago Vista, TX
The Lago Vista property recently received approval for a 100% long term rental in the PDD amendment and remains on schedule currently to close in Q4.
SG Blocks is excited that the site plan for a 1,400-acre waterfront parcel, and largest project to date, has been approved for development. The Cumberland Inlet Project is envisioned to revitalize the downtown St. Marys area with an emphasis on creating a community in harmony with the natural surroundings.
Initial deliveries of the modular residential units are expected by Q3 2023, with updates to the manufacturing site to follow.
The location will serve as home to 1,280 units made up of single family, multi-family, vacation and hospitality use, as well as a full-service marina, village, and upscale Eco-Tourism park inclusive of camping, yurts, cabins and cottages.
St. Marys, GA (Manufacturing Facility)
The Company has purchased approximately 33 acres of land from the Camden County Joint Development Authority (JDA) for the development of a new manufacturing facility that will support the Cumberland Inlet project.
Located in the heart of St. Marys Commerce Park, this location provides perfect accessibility to the metropolitan area’s transportation infrastructure. The 114,000 square foot manufacturing facility will welcome roughly 125 new employees within the first three years. The new campus will serve a multitude of projects including the Cumberland Inlet and Norman Berry projects.
On August 26th, Paul Galvin gave remarks at the Groundbreaking ceremony and ribbon cutting for the Cumberland Inlet project in conjunction with Jacoby Development. Many were able to witness the moment in person and met esteemed members of the local and state community including Governor Kemp, Mayor Morrissey, and the Georgia Deputy Commissioner of Tourism.
McLean, OK (Site and Manufacturing Facility)
Since the November 2021 closing of 114-acre “McLean Mixed-Use” site in Durant, Oklahoma, the Company has received approval to build 400 more multi-family units, bringing the total to 800 units in the “McLean Residential Project.” Given the significant need for workforce housing driven by the expansion of employers in the area, the Company capitalized on this opportunity to meet the increasing demand of the community.
The “McLean Mixed use” site also intends to be home to SG Echo at McLean Manufacturing facility, totaling approximately 120,000 Square feet. The remaining property will support approximately 1.1 million square feet of distribution, cold storage, industrial and manufacturing space in the near future.
SG Echo at Waldron (Manufacturing Facility)
In November 2021 the Company received a forgivable loan of $750,000 by The Durant Industrial Authority to renovate and increase in size an existing manufacturing facility site. The Company has since added approximately $3.0 million of improvements. SG Echo at Waldron will serve as the Company’s second manufacturing campus in Durant, OK. The facility will begin manufacturing modules in December 2022.
The new state-of-the-art facility intends to help stimulate economic growth within the area while sitting near Dallas, Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa. Working together with the Durant Industrial Authority, as part of the forgivable loan program, SG Echo at Waldron will create roughly 75 new jobs for the area. The Company has spent the last year renovating the space and is targeting November 2022 for the ribbon cutting.
