St. Paul – Former Bush Furniture Building

Partnering for progress, connected for success.

Ideal for Industrial Manufacturing


This building offers solid construction and direct access to Highway 58 in St. Paul, Virginia. Also, access to I-81 is just 30 miles away in nearby Abingdon. The 284,406 square-foot, single-story building is ideally suited for industrial consolidation or expansion and offers the potential of having all key processes located under one roof – development, manufacturing, transportation and distribution. The structure has ample office space (fully heated and cooled); an open warehouse area with 24 to 30-foot ceilings; numerous, manual dock-high loading doors; and several, large drive-in and floor-level doors. This site also has rail access which can be served by either Norfolk Southern or CSX.

The site has access to Town of St. Paul public water and sewage and CPC OptiNet, a fiber-optic infrastructure capable of tier-4 data center performance. Broadband redundancy is also available through local providers Verizon and Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel).
