Infill Atlanta industrial complex trades
JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of the eight-building light industrial property in the West Midtown area
ATLANTA, Feb. 8, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Seaboard Park, an eight-building light industrial complex totaling 267,442 square feet in Atlanta’s West Midtown area.
Seaboard Park is 95 percent leased to six tenants in diverse industries, including Georgia-Pacific, InterContinental Hotels Group, Zep and Door Dash. The property offers the tenants features such as multiple loading positions and ample parking.
From its irreplaceable location at 1310 Seaboard Industrial Blvd NW, Seaboard Park’s tenants can reach over 1.5 million people – comprising the majority of their respective customer bases – in under 30 minutes. The facility is proximate to some of Atlanta’s critical logistical infrastructure, including Interstates 75 and 285, the Norfolk Southern – Inman Rail Yard and CSX Howell yard. Additionally, it is in Atlanta’s Upper Westside, a rapidly developing extension of West Midtown that provides proximity to Buckhead, Midtown and the Northwest Atlanta suburbs.
The facility is within Atlanta’s Chattahoochee Industrial submarket, a highly sought-after, infill submarket. According to JLL Research’s Atlanta Industrial Insight report, this submarket ended the fourth quarter of 2021 with a low 4.1 percent vacancy rate. Additionally, with no completions and no space currently under construction at the end of 2021, competition for space is high for both tenants and investors attracted to infill industrial product.
The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team that represented the seller was led by Matt Wirth, Huston Green, Dennis Mitchell, Britton Burdette, Jim Freeman and Maddie Davis, with assistance from Joseph Rogers and Jamie Hargather with Wilson Hull & Neal.
“The deep and varied buyer pool for Seaboard Park was evidence of the continued demand for irreplaceable infill industrial assets,” Wirth said. “Along with the extreme growth potential in rental rate from an industrial perspective, the Upper Westside location also means there’s unique long-term upside and flexibility with the potential for adaptive reuse. It’s rare to find those qualities while also having a significant credit story, which the seller was able to put together in leasing the buildings to tenants like Georgia-Pacific, IHG, DoorDash and Saltbox.”
