The Warren Norman Company is proud to announce the groundbreaking of our newest development ‘The Perch’. It will be located on the corner of Cherry Road and Oakland Avenue next to Winthrop University. The Perch will consist of a new +/- 22,382 SF two-story building and the existing +/- 5,343 SF former Coca-Cola bottling plant. The new 2-story building will be a mixture of restaurant, retail, and office users with space available for lease now. As for the ‘Coke building’ as often referred, we have a very exciting announcement coming soon! The development will also feature an artificial turf outdoor games area with traditional lawn games and the ability to host live music and other exciting events.

When the Warren Norman Company set out to make this project a reality, they knew it needed a great name to effectively brand and market the project. To accomplish this the Warren Norman team leaned on Jane Thomas and Stephanie Lawson, professors in the College of Business Administration at Winthrop University. It soon became a semester long project in a few of the higher-level classes to research and gather feedback from the Rock Hill community. After months of hard work, they presented many ideas and branding strategies, and ‘The Perch’ was chosen as recommended by Winthrop students.

With over +/- 27,725 SF of leasable space at The Perch there are many spaces available for a restaurant, office, or retail user.
