New Way of Retail Opens in Hampton

Hampton, VA – October 26, 2017 – A ribbon cutting ceremony marked the end of construction for the City of Hampton’s 90,000 SF E-Commerce Center on Thursday, October 26. With the grand opening scheduled for November 4, the facility will provide convenience to the internet seller by providing one place to work, store merchandise, and ship. The center will feature 70,000 SF of temperature controlled self-storage, 15,000 SF of dynamic office spaces, and a retail shipping store.

The center is located at Todds Lane and Aberdeen Road in the City of Hampton. Local civil engineering and landscape architecture firm, Timmons Group, has been instrumental providing services for this project led by General Contractor, W.M. Jordan in Newport News. PMA Architects in Chesapeake was the architect for the project.

“The E-Commerce Center represents what we are going to see more of in the future as retail continues to change drastically,” said Mark Richardson, Principal of Timmons Group’s Hampton Roads office. “Big Box stores have been struggling amid online competition and we are seeing a trend in retailers wanting smaller offices with larger storage spaces. The trend comes from consumers wanting ultra-convenience and instant gratification, and this type of facility allows for that.”

Timmons Group provided surveying, construction documents, site development plans, including grading, drainage and stormwater management, landscape design, environmental site assessment and utilities for this project.
