GLL closes purchase of fully leased Atlanta logistics property
By: GLL Real Estate Partners
The purchase of the 100 percent leased property is GLL's second major logistics acquisition in the U.S. and brings its industrial portfolio to almost 1.5 million square feet.
"Our North American industrial portfolio continues to grow with our ability to source and close purchases of best-in-class, core assets in markets with strong fundamentals, a positive economic outlook and high barriers to entry," said Christian Goebel, Executive Vice President, GLL.
Southwest 85 Logistics was completed by Core5 in September 2018 and fully leased to Saddle Creek Logistics Services, an omnichannel supply chain solutions company with 44 locations nationwide. The facility is within the 850-acre master planned Coweta Industrial Park and fronts I-85, the Atlanta area's major northeast-southwest freeway.
The state of the art Class A logistics facility has 40-foot clear heights, cross-dock loading, 60-foot staging bays and plenty of auto and trailer parking.
