Project description: Convoy of Hope is replacing its Springfield distribution center with a new building off of James River Freeway, between Springfield and Republic. The international humanitarian nonprofit sold its 300,000-square-foot center to O’Reilly Automotive Inc. (Nasdaq: ORLY) for an undisclosed sum, and officials say they’re applying proceeds from the sale toward the new building. The 330 S. Patterson Ave. property most recently appraised for $7 million, according to Greene County assessor records. Convoy spokesperson Jeff Nene said the new distribution center on 135 acres is designed with space for the disaster services team and equipment, as well as volunteer activity areas. Jon Dodd, a partner with project architect Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective, said the firm also completed interior design work.
