Posted October 01, 2019 04:29:10 Disney has said it will build a 3-million-square-foot (1.1-million square-meter) indoor and outdoor campus at the company’s Haller Industries headquarters in Greenville, South Carolina.
The new facility will be a key element of Disney’s push to capture new and existing businesses that would otherwise go unserved in the southern region of the United States, according to the company.
Disney will build the campus on a 10-acre (3-hectare) site in Haller’s former home of Greenville’s Greenville County Industrial Park.
The park is currently home to the Greenville Golf Club, the Haller Enterprise Greenville Business Center and the Hallers’ National Golf and Country Club.
Disney currently operates more than 700 of the company´s more than 7,000 indoor and outdoors resorts around the world, including its popular Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom parks in Orlando, Florida, and Epcot in Florida.
The Haller enterprise, based in Hallerville, Georgia, is the parent company of Haller Corporation, which has a portfolio of about 70 businesses, including hotels, restaurants, retail stores, and food service businesses.
Disney has been expanding its portfolio of business in southern Florida since 2015 with the addition of its first Florida location, the Disney Springs Resort, in Orlando.
In 2019, Disney opened a brand-new $50 billion resort, the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, in the Florida resort’s Florida World-Dome.
The company has also announced plans to expand its business in the Gulf of Mexico with plans to create a large, open-air park in a coastal resort in the town of Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
