SAVANNAH, July 26, 2023 –  JLL Capital Markets announced today that it arranged the $74.7 million sale of an infill industrial, build-to-suit transload facility totalling 136,240 square feet in Savannah, Georgia.

The newly built facility located at 4833 and 4835 Old Louisville Road, which has 69 parking spaces and 884 trailer parking spaces, sprawls over an approximately 60-acre site and includes 134 dock doors. Located just south of the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and along U.S. Route 80, the facility is within a five-mile radius of I-95, I-16, the CSX & Norfolk Southern intermodals, and both terminals of the Port of Savannah. JLL represented the seller, InLight Real Estate Partners, and procured the buyer, JPMREIT.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Directors Britton Burdette, Patrick Nally, Dennis Mitchell and Matt Wirth and Directors Mitchell Townsend and Jim Freeman.

“We are pleased to have acquired what we believe is a high-quality asset that will serve as both a critical drayage/transload facility and a place to securely store excess trailers and ocean containers, located less than five miles from the fast-growing Port of Savannah,” said Dave Esrig, Co-President of JPMREIT. “We continue to see strong demand in the transload sector, and this transaction aligns with our strategic investment focus on income-producing assets that are positioned to benefit from the consumption trends of the new economy.”
