ATLANTA (April 20, 2015) - USAA Real Estate Company and Seefried Industrial Properties recently purchased a 183-acre site in Jackson County for industrial development with close proximity to I-85. The venture will aggressively pursue build-to-suits for distribution, fulfillment, and manufacturing prospects from 500,000 up to 1,800,000 sf.

The project - Valentine 85 Logistics Center - is centrally located off of I-85 between two major interchanges at GA Highway 82 and Georgia 11 which offers direct access to the park. Valentine 85 is a fully entitled site with established infrastructure, signalized ingress/egress and flexible building configurations.

"This site is in the center of Jackson County's robust industrial distribution market," said Greg Herren, chief operating officer of Seefried Properties.

Lange Allen, USAA's National Director of Development recognizes the need for speed and flexibility in accommodating the requirements of distribution users, "In this market, capital requirements for tenant directed infrastructure often dictate that buildings provide the highest quality, state of the art features with the shortest possible delivery times.
