Lititz, PA (December 18, 2015)—Rock Lititz, the 96-acre live event production campus created as a partnership between Clair Global and Tait Towers, opened in the fall of 2014 with its first edifice—Rock Lititz Studio, a custom-designed, $7 million, 52,000-square-foot facility for designing, assembling and testing large-scale event set ups. Now the joint venture has broken ground on its next phase: Pod #2, a 250,000-square-foot building on 10.08 acres that will house multiple live event vendors and resources.
Construction of Pod #2 is expected to be completed by December, 2016; nine companies are lined up to be tenants, including Clair Global, and the new building as a whole is at 75 percent occupancy. Clair, which already has considerable facilities elsewhere in Lititz, will use its Pod #2 location to support “expansion into new product lines,” according to a statement.
Also moving into Pod #2 will be Atomic, a provider of set construction, rental solutions, lighting, design and production services; CM Motors, which provides lifting and positioning equipment for riggers; Project Opus Films, a video and film production company; logistics company Rock-It Cargo; touring industry product supplier Tour Supply; Upstage Video, which deals in large-scale LED video solutions; TFB Catering; and a satellite location of the Lititz Rec Center.
“This ‘industry cluster’ model promotes interactions and personal relationships between people in different companies that build trust and facilitate the flow of unique market, technical, and competitive information,“ said Andrea Shirk, general manager of Rock Lititz. An announcement concerning the addition of a lodging facility is planned for later this year.
