QVC Rocky Mount Warehouse Rebuilt After 2021 Fire Sells for $21 Million

QVC has sold its former Rocky Mount, NC warehouse that was damaged in a devastating fire for $20.8 million. The buyer is RMQ Ventures LLC, which is affiliated with Cogency Global. 

On Dec. 18, 2021, the fire spread across much of the 1.2 million-square-foot distribution center on Highway 64 across from the Kingsboro CSX Select Megasite. Extensive renovations have been completed to repair and repaint the facility.

In addition to Cogency Global, RMQ Ventures also lists New York residents Schmiley Schick and Jonathan Tawil among its company officials. The new owners’ plans for the site have not been disclosed.

Carolinas Gateway Partnership, a public-private organization that recruits industrial companies to the region, is showing the site to companies that may be interested in taking the space.

The facility coming back on the market gives a boost to warehouse industry in North Carolina’s Greater Triangle.
