A landscaping company recently moved to a business park near the intersection of U.S. 421 and Interstate-140 in Wilmington.

Turf Medic now occupies a 2,400-square-foot office and shop space at 364 Metro Circle, in Roymac Business Park, owned by RL Blanton & Co. Inc., according to a news release from Coldwell Banker Commercial SunCoast.

Don Harley, a partner and agent with Coldwell Banker Commercial SunCoast, negotiated the lease agreement with Turf Medic. The firm's Roymac Business Park space is a newly constructed, free-standing office and industrial flex building divided into three, 2,400-square-foot bays. Turf Medic relocated to the new facility this month from its former location in Leland, the release said.

“We were attracted to Roymac Business Park because of its location,” said Stephen Caracciolo, owner of Turf Medic, in the release. “Once I-140 is complete, we will be in the perfect spot to quickly access our service areas in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties. We’re also ideally located just a few minutes from most of our suppliers in the Wrightsboro area.”

The N.C. Department of Transportation is "making every effort to get the [I-140] bypass open" on Dec. 15, a department spokesman said Wednesday. 

"But we still have a handful of steps to make before that happens, so we may not make that decision until early the week of the 15th," said Steve Abbott of the N.C. DOT, in an email. "As always, weather is also a factor. We will get an update out when the yes or no decision is made regarding making it happen by that date."

Even when the road opens, Abbott wrote, the N.C. DOT doesn't consider the project complete because crews will continue working on the project until next year.

Turf Medic was established in February 2006 and employs nine people, the CBC SunCoast release said.

"In addition to the office and shop space, the 364 Metro Circle location will provide storage area for the firm’s trucks and plant materials," stated the release. "The landscape care company specializes in lawn care, weed control, and tree and shrub care, and services primarily residential clients in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties."

The release said additional tenants and property owners at Roymac Business Park include Roymac Partnership (Kyle McIntyre); Ferrell Gas Co.; Parker Gas Co.; Quarles Petroleum Inc.; Saunders & Saunders LLC; Terry Spell Mechanical; M 2 LLC; Absolute Wall & Ceiling Systems; Maola Milk; Between the Rivers LLC; and B & B Holdings.
