Today Torch Technologies announced a major construction project to renovate and occupy a new headquarters facility and conference center. The announcement was celebrated with a groundbreaking event at the site of the new conference center. Torch’s sister company, Freedom Real Estate & Capital, LLC, recently acquired the office buildings located at 4090 South Memorial Parkway and 4035 Chris Drive as well as approximately twelve surrounding acres. Torch has partnered with Freedom Real Estate & Capital to develop the properties and Torch will serve as the anchor tenant of the multi-tenant facility which will be named The Freedom Center. The project development partners include Matheny Goldmon Architecture and Turner Construction.
The construction will include a total renovation of the 40,000 SF four story 4090 South Memorial Parkway building, construction of a new 10,000+ SF conference center and a partial renovation of the 40,000 SF four story building at 4035 Chris Drive. The 4035 Building currently serves as the headquarters for Torch Technologies, Inc. and Invariant, LLC as well as Freedom Real Estate & Capital, LLC.
The newly constructed 10,000+ sq. ft. conference center will connect the buildings located at 4090 South Memorial Parkway and 4035 Chris Drive. When completed, the combined properties will be named The Freedom Center. Torch will fully occupy the building currently at 4090 South Memorial Parkway, the new Conference Center and a portion of the building at 4035 Chris Drive.
John Watson, President of Torch Technologies, commented that “We are excited to be growing and be in a position to establish a permanent Corporate Headquarters in southeast Huntsville. We are anxious to complete the new facilities for our employee owners as well as the customers we serve on Redstone Arsenal. This is a major milestone for our company and we’re looking forward to completing the construction by the end of the year.”
Bill Roark, CEO of Torch Technologies & Freedom Real Estate & Capital added “It is satisfying to kickoff this milestone project, for Torch and Freedom Real Estate, and to contribute to further development in southeast Huntsville. We are particularly proud to name the combined facility The Freedom Center, in honor of the many Military members, as well as civilians, who fight and work every day to keep our country free.”
