News Release: Seefried Breaks Ground on 800k SF Spec Development Near Metro Atlanta
Jackson County, Georgia [September 10, 2021] – Seefried Industrial Properties has officially launched construction on an 800,590-square-foot speculative industrial building at Valentine Farms in Jackson County, located 50 miles north of Metro Atlanta. The project – Valentine 85 Logistics Center Building 2 – is centrally located off of I-85 between two major interchanges at GA Highway 82 and Georgia 11 which offers direct access to the building. The project is the second phase of development at Valentine Farms, also located near Jackson County. Seefried developed the first phase of development which included a single 1,021,000-square-foot spec building which was sold to Hillwood Investment Properties in 2018 for an undisclosed price.
The modern bulk distribution center is being built with 40-foot clear heights, 134 trailer spaces, 336 parking spaces, 153 dock doors and four drive-in doors.
“The I-85 submarket in Jackson County has proven to be a terrific logistics and distribution location for many of the nation’s largest retail and e-commerce users,” said Greg Herren, Senior Vice President and COO of Seefried.
The building is slated to open for occupancy in September 2022. Marketing efforts for the project will be led by Doug Smith and Joseph Kriss of Seefried as well as Scott Plomgren and Harrison Marsteller of Colliers. FCL Builders is the general contractor.
