ATLANTA, Nov. 29, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub 1F & 1H (Savannah Gateway), two Class A industrial buildings totaling 1.1 million square feet in Rincon, Georgia.

JLL represented the seller, Broe Real Estate Group, in the sale to TerraCap Management, LLC.

Completed earlier this year, the buildings located at 1008 and 1009 Gateway Parkway, Rincon Georgia are leased to two tenants, Lion Brand Yarn and DHL Supply Chain, the North American contract logistics subsidiary of Deutsche Post DHL Group. The buildings are part of the Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub, a 2,600+ acre multi-modal logistics park.

Highlighted by dual rail service from both Norfolk Southern and CSX and switching by OmniTRAX,The Broe Group’s transportation affiliate, Savannah Gateway is situated 12.7 miles from the Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal and is minutes from Interstates 95 and 16 and Highway 21. As a result, tenants can reach major Southeastern markets, such as Atlanta, Charlotte, Orlando and Jacksonville, in under four hours. Over three million square feet in three buildings have been completed since 2021 and another 1.5 million feet is currently in development. Construction of Effingham Parkway, which runs through the projected 18 million square feet park, will further enhance Savannah Gateway’s connectivity to the port.

Savannah Gateway benefits from its position near the Garden City Terminal, the single largest and fastest-growing container terminal in America, growing cargo volumes by 20% year-over-year. According to JLL’s Savannah Industrial Insight – Q3 2022, Savannah ranks as one of the best industrial markets in the country with the lowest vacancy rate in the nation at 0.5% and one of the highest amounts of tracked tenant demand at 30 million square feet. This has led to explosive rental rate growth in the market (25.3% YOY) which is projected to continue. The market has a robust pipeline to keep up with tenant demand, however, 47% of new construction is already pre-leased or in negotiations.

The JLL Capital Markets Industrial team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Britton Burdette and Dennis Mitchell and Associate Jim Freeman.

“This sale is yet another example of the high demand for quality industrial assets in Savannah. This is being driven by the outstanding performance of the market,” said Burdette. “With extremely high demand for space and nearly no availabilities, Savannah is one of the best industrial markets in the country. Investors have taken note and are targeting opportunities in the market.”
