Lincoln Property Company Southeast Breaks Ground on Spec Distribution Center in Atlanta

05 Apr 2018

Lincoln Property Company Southeast announced it has broken ground on Union 85 Distribution Center, a 243,540-square-foot spec warehouse/distribution center in the premier I-85 South industrial corridor of Atlanta.

The new cutting-edge industrial facility will feature 32-foot clear heights, 38 dock-high doors, two drive-in doors, front load configuration and 40 existing spaces for excess trailer storage. The new building will be located at 3725 Royal South Parkway, less than a half mile from I-85 and at the first full-diamond interchange south of I-285 via Flat Shoals Road. This region is one of Atlanta’s top industrial markets, serving numerous corporate clients including Google, Kraft, Samsung, Amazon, Proctor & Gamble, Keurig, Duracell and SC Johnson.

“Union 85 will provide a state-of-the-art industrial space in a thriving industrial corridor of Atlanta,” said Lincoln Vice President Denton Shamburger. “As more companies continue to expand their e-commerce capabilities, accessible, well-located industrial projects like Union 85 will remain in high demand.”

Lincoln will execute the development and arrange the lease of the project upon completion, which is scheduled for later this year.

“Union 85 will be a tremendous opportunity for companies seeking warehouse space in a strategic location,” said Lincoln Senior Vice President Tony Bartlett. “With unsurpassed connectivity to major interstates, close proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and a location in one of Atlanta’s hottest industrial markets, this facility will be very attractive to major industrial users.”

The company developed and delivered its most recent spec distribution center in the region, Flat Shoals 85 Distribution Center, at year-end in 2017. That facility is fully leased by Future Forwarding Company.
