29.73-Acre Site to Boast New Class A, Spec Industrial Building


ATLANTA, GA – Trammell Crow Company and partners Huntington Industrial Partners and Amstar, have acquired a 29.73 acre land site in the I-85 South Atlanta submarket. Development plans include the construction of Fairburn 85 Distribution Center, a Class A, speculative industrial building totaling 317,520 square feet. The development team expects to break ground 3Q 2014.

“We are pleased to announce this acquisition and have the opportunity to break ground on our first speculative industrial development in Atlanta this cycle on a great site in one of the most desirable submarkets,” said Mark Dishaw, Senior Vice President of Trammell Crow Company’s Atlanta Business Unit. “The 1-85 submarket has experienced tremendous growth in the past decade and given the positive attributes of this site, limited amount of first generation space, restrained development and strengthening demand, we believe this will be a successful speculative development.”

Fairburn 85 Distribution Center will be a 32’ clear, modern, cross-dock warehouse with efficient ingress/egress and a flexible design that can accommodate multiple tenants. This site is well positioned in the industrial market along I-85, providing direct connection to Atlanta’s I-285 metro loop. The site is also in proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and the CSX Intermodal Facility.

First Vice President Todd Barton and Senior Vice President Greg Haynes with CBRE Atlanta have been hired to lease and market the project.
