Panattoni Kicks Off 1.55 Million Sq. Ft. Development at Lambert Farms

JLL Represents Landlord in Pre-lease of 1MM SF and Speculative 550K SF

ATLANTA, August 2, 2017  – Panattoni Development Company, Inc. announced that it has commenced construction on an additional 1.55 million square feet of space at its Lambert Farms Logistics Park in Henry County, south of Atlanta.

One million square feet of the space has been pre-leased to an international consumer brand. The additional 550,000 square feet is being developed as speculative space. A JLL team led by Executive Vice President Wit Truitt, Senior Vice President Chris Tomasulo and Vice President Reed Davis represented the ownership entity in the lease negotiations and currently is marketing the spec portion of the project.

Panattoni started construction on the development in June and expects to complete it in the second quarter of 2018.

"Lambert Farms continues to attract interest from blue-chip companies, and Panattoni is pleased to be expanding the project once again," said Dayne Pryor, Partner at Panattoni. "The large lease and additional spec development is a testament to Lambert Farms' and Henry County's position as a preferred location for major logistics facilities."

In 2016, upscale retailer Tory Burch leased a 753,000-square-foot distribution center at Lambert Farms. Expected to be operational later this year, the distribution center is projected to create more than150 new jobs.

"This latest lease continues the momentum Panattoni has created at Lambert Farms," Truitt said. "Corporate America really likes the development's location as an ideal spot for both distribution and e-commerce users."

According to Truitt, metro Atlanta's superior logistics location, proximity to the UPS and FedEx hubs in the region, and the access to the Georgia Ports Authority import centers in Savannah, are some of the key drivers for the success of Lambert Farms.
