Anderson County

Several years ago, Anderson County Council established the ___-acre Alliance Industrial Park near the intersection of Interstate 85 and S.C. Highway 81. In January 2004, after a number of years of on-and-off interest from potential clients, the long-anticipated announcement came: Walgreen would build a major distribution center in the Alliance Park. The massive facility would cover 17 acres of ground and would provide employment for hundreds of workers.

Prior to the coming of Walgreen, the county had erected a shell building on another tract within the park. That structure places Anderson County in a strong position for its ongoing program of recruiting industry and jobs to the area. Blue Ridge made RDA contributions to infrastructure improvements for the Alliance Industrial Park in 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2003.

Total Blue Ridge RDA contributions to Anderson County: $330,000
