JLL capitalizes Atlanta Goodyear Distribution Center

The build-to-suit is the largest industrial project currently under construction in the Atlanta MSA 

January 28, 2020

ATLANTA, January 28, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged an equity partnership for the development of a build-to-suit Goodyear Distribution Center, a 1.5-million-square-foot warehouse and distribution center in the suburban Atlanta community of Newnan, Georgia.

JLL worked on behalf of Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, to arrange the equity partnership with Stonemont Financial Group to fully fund and own this new facility for Goodyear.

Situated on 147 acres at the intersection of Interstate 85 and Georgia Highway 16, Goodyear Distribution Center is currently the largest build-to-suit industrial project under construction in the Atlanta metropolitan area. The facility will be constructed on a former golf course that was repurposed into an industrial park and expected to be completed in March 2021.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the developer was led by Managing Directors Britton Burdette, Matt Wirth and Pete Pittroff; Senior Managing Director Dennis Mitchell; and Director Patrick Nally.

“Having this project land in Atlanta is important for the city and demonstrates the many advantages the market has in attracting large-scale distribution operations to the area,” Burdette said. “Prologis’ development expertise combined with Stonemont’s commitment to high-quality investment opportunities led to a great execution and results for Goodyear.”

According to a recent JLL Industrial Outlook Report, market fundamentals for United States industrial product in Q3 are continuing to perform well. Demand remains strong, and tenants have expressed preferences for new, modern spaces and shorter leases to meet product delivery timeline.
