ATLANTA, July 28, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets has announced today that it has closed the $12.275 million sale of a fully leased, low-coverage industrial building in Savannah, Georgia.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Hight Knox Properties, LLC, and procured the buyer, Kokot Realty Enterprises.

48 Artley Rd. consists of a 100%-leased, 64,372-square-foot production facility with 3.6 acres of trailer/outdoor storage within the SPA industrial Park. The building features 3,109 square feet of office space, 34’-38’ clear heights, four grade-level drive-ins, six dock doors and 27 car parking spots. The building is leased to Celadon Fiber, which processes corrugated cardboard and wastepaper into clean commodity products for export. The property is situated in a high barrier to entry infill area of Savannah just minutes from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and less than eight miles from the Port of Savannah’s booming Garden City Terminal.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Britton Burdette, Dennis Mitchell and Matt Wirth, Director Mitchell Townsend and Associate Jim Freeman.

“We received a very strong response from the market for the asset,” Burdette said. “Well-located, infill, low-coverage assets are in high demand and short supply. In addition, the strength of the Savannah industrial market, now with the lowest vacancy rate in the country along with some of the highest amount of tenant demand, drove significant interest for this offering.”
