ATLANTA, Dec. 7, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today the closed sale of a new, Class A, 425,660-square-foot, single-tenant distribution building in Atlanta (McDonough), Georgia.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, PNK Group. The property was acquired by KKR’s Americas core plus real estate strategy.

Completed in 2021, the cross-dock building features a 36-foot clear height, LED lighting, ESFR fire protection, 50 loading positions, 97 trailer parking stalls and low office finish. The building is within a new 260-acre master planned industrial park which features a full slate of best-in-class amenities, including landscaped walking and biking trails; electric car charging stations; food truck courts with seating areas; modern building designs; and two points to access Interstate 75.

The asset is located within the McDonough industrial micromarket, a desirable location in the larger I-75 South submarket. This location provides easy access to Atlanta’s five major thoroughfares, allowing the tenant to reach more than three million people within a 60-minute drive and access approximately 80 percent of the U.S. population within a two-day drive. Additionally, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is 25 miles from the property. The Port of Savannah is approximately 200 miles from the property.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team that represented the seller was led by Britton Burdette, Matt Wirth, Dennis Mitchell and Mitchell Townsend.

“The top-tier credit backing the lease and state-of-the-art core building design provided a vital piece that balanced the overall portfolio of which this property was a part and helped to drive buyer demand for the offering,” Burdette said.
