BMW Master Plan
Spartanburg, South Carolina
In 2013, BMW stakeholders embarked on a Master Planning process for the new Central Office Complex at the BMW Plant 10 Manufacturing Facility outside the City of Greer in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The site identified for the new Central Office Complex is comprised of approximately 78 acres and located in the Southeast corner of the existing campus bounded by Interstate 85, Highway 101, and the plant’s Main Visitor’s Entrance. Perkins+Will working in conjunction with the BMW team, several development scenarios for the location of the new Central Office Complex on this site were studied, with the final consensus Master Plan reflected in this overview.
The final Master Plan makes accommodation for up to four phases of growth, supporting primarily office use. Traffic and civil engineering studies were undertaken to confirm that no additional significant traffic, stormwater, or utilities modifications would need to be provided to support an initial Phase One building project. To accommodate BMW’s immediate growth need, a Phase One implementation of this Master Plan is required that will accommodate approximately 300 employees in a new office building in the range of 50,000 – 65,000 gross square feet.
