Chick-fil-A Signs Long-Term Lease for 111,252-Square-Foot Industrial Facility That Lincoln Is Developing Near Atlanta Airport
Lincoln Property Company Southeast (Lincoln) is developing a 111,252-square-foot industrial facility at Airport West Distribution Center near Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport. Chick-fil-A, whose corporate headquarters on Buffington Road is across the street from Airport West, has signed a long-term lease to fully occupy the building upon its completion in January 2015.
Denton Shamburger, vice president for Lincoln, represented the landlord, Morgan Stanley, in the lease and was the only broker involved in the transaction.
The lease means Chick-fil-A will occupy nearly 85 percent of Airport West when the third building in the park is completed. Airport West currently features two buildings totaling 287,703 square feet, of which Chick-fil-A occupies 221,449 square feet.
“Airport West has been a great success story, and Denton has done an outstanding job of leasing this industrial park,” said Tony Bartlett, senior vice president at Lincoln who oversees the Atlanta office. “Chick-fil-A is every owner’s dream tenant, and we are proud to be able to call them one of our valued clients.”
