Seefried Properties, a national real estate firm specializing in the development, leasing and management of industrial properties, along with capital partner and leading real estate investment manager Clarion Partners, LLC., have recently acquired an 80-acre site for the development of a 969,620-square-foot Class A logistics center known as Buford North Distribution Center. Located in the dynamic northeast Atlanta submarket along Interstate 985 in Hall County, GA., construction on the first phase of development is expected to begin in August 2022 with completion during the fourth quarter of 2023.
Buford North Distribution Center will include 969,620-square-feet of logistics space across three buildings featuring flexible designs to accommodate multiple tenants with varying size requirements. Phase two of the project is scheduled to begin construction in the third quarter of 2023 and will include 434,320-square-feet of space across two buildings. Features of all three buildings will include 185′ deep concrete exterior truck courts, 36′ clear heights, ample parking, and ESFR sprinklers.
“Seefried and Clarion Partners are very excited about this new project in Northeast Atlanta,” said Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Seefried. “The location of Buford North at Interstate 985 and Friendship Road is square in the middle of one of the most desired locations for businesses and distributors in metro Atlanta and the Southeast.”
The Civil Engineer on the project is Eberly & Associates; the Architect is Atlas Architecture. Leasing efforts for the project will be led by the Seefried leasing team comprised of Joseph Kriss, Tripp Ausband and Doug Smith.
Buford North Distribution Center is located approximately 40 miles northeast of Atlanta. The location will afford tenants easy access to I-85 as well as Metro Atlanta and other nearby states.
