The Atlanta office of Trammell Crow Company (TCC), a global commercial real estate developer, and JV partner CBRE Investment Management, on behalf of a fund it manages, broke ground on the first phase of the Jackson 85 North Business Park (Jackson 85) in Jackson County, Georgia. Located on a 287-acre site in the northeast Atlanta submarket along Interstate 85, Jackson 85 will deliver 2,252,000 square feet of Class A logistics space upon full completion in 2025.

The first phase of development at Jackson 85 will include 1.5 million square feet across two cross-dock facilities. Building 1 will comprise 538,450 square feet and Building 2 will offer 1,001,000 square feet. Phase one is expected to deliver in Q1 2024. Construction on Phase two will begin in mid-2024 and include a single 713,050-square-foot cross-dock facility, delivering in 2025. Features of all three buildings will include 185’ to 190’ deep concrete exterior truck courts, 40’ clear heights, ample power, ESFR fire sprinklers, and R-19 insulation.

“We are excited to officially break ground on Jackson 85 North Business Park in Jackson County, which continues to see an increase in demand for high-end logistics space that can meet the needs of a variety of today’s industrial users,” said Will Lombard, a Senior Vice President with TCC Atlanta. “In the wake of our success at nearby Jefferson Mill Business Park, this project emphasizes our belief in the market and our team’s ability to execute Class A projects of scale.”

“We’re proud to partner with TCC to bring this well-located, modern logistics development to fruition in one of Metro Atlanta’s most active logistics corridors,” said Mary Lang, Head of Americas Direct Logistics Strategies for CBRE Investment Management. “We believe that the Atlanta area’s robust infrastructure network, strong demographic and economic growth, and multimodal accessibility will enable this asset to provide long-term value to various manufacturers and distributors in the area.”

Leasing for the project will be handled by Wilson Hull & Neal Real Estate.

The Jackson 85 North Business Park is located approximately 60 miles northeast of Atlanta. The location will afford tenants easy access to I-85, to Metro Atlanta and major markets in other nearby states.
