First phase of the 560-acre mega-site includes 1 million square foot speculative building, 611,050 square foot pad
CRG, in partnership with Pope & Land Enterprises, Inc., is developing The Cubes at Bridgeport, a 560-acre industrial mega-site with 8.5 million square feet of planned industrial space in the Southwest Atlanta submarket.
Located in Coweta County, the Bridgeport development is strategically located on the I-85 interchange at exit 41 and near major transportation systems, including both CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International and Newnan-Coweta County Airport, a 5,600 square foot regional airport.
In a joint venture with institutional capital, the first phase of the development includes a 1,002,150 square foot speculative building with 40′ clear height, ample trailer storage and car parks associated with the new state-of-the-art distribution theme, capable of handling high-cube warehousing, e-commerce and manufacturing requirements. In total, Bridgeport can accommodate building sizes exceeding 2 million square feet.
“The I-85 South corridor continues to be the most vibrant and active industrial area of Atlanta. There is over 200 million square feet of industrial base in the region,” CRG Southeast Region Vice President Mike Demperio said. “Top companies in the U.S. such as Google, Proctor & Gamble, Clorox, Lowes, and Kellogg’s have new 1 million square foot facilities in the area. Access to I-85, CSX Intermodal Yard, and the Atlanta Airport have been key ingredients to these business’s success.”
“We are proud of our partnership with CRG on such an important development to the area. We look forward to working with future tenants to provide quality jobs and a strong community for the people of Coweta County,” President of the Coweta County Development Authority Trae Westmoreland said. “Coweta County is a recognized leader in developing the talent and workforce a company needs. We’re geographically located to help companies attract workers from throughout the Georgia and Alabama region.”
The first phase also includes major infrastructure improvements such as ramp upgrades, a new signalized intersection on Highway 29, a public parkway and overpass above the CSX main line providing access to the development as well as water, two miles of new sanitary sewer, and electric utility improvements.
Clayco is the design-builder and its subsidiary, BatesForum, is the architect on the project. Construction on the 1,002,150 square foot building will be complete December 2018. JLL’s Chris Tomasulo and Steve Grable have been chosen as the marketing team for the project.
As the industry begins to measure cubic feet and maximize racking space, CRG’s “The Cubes” industrial brand is a commitment to meet the tremendous demand in the speculative warehouse market. E-commerce is driving business at CRG as demands to meet tenant’s modern consumer centric needs continue to increase. With most of today’s existing inventory obsolete, CRG is anticipating the needs of next generation of industrial users.
The Cubes at Bridgeport is CRG’s sixth industrial park. In the Southeast region, CRG developed The Cubes at Locust Grove, a 1 million square foot distribution center in the Atlanta suburb of Locust Grove. The Cubes at Inland 85, a 324-acre site in the Greenville, South Carolina market will include 500,280 square foot speculative building expandable to 1,186,680 square feet and is currently under development.
