Atlanta Industrial

Second Half 2019

High-End Properties Maintain Pace of Construction; Ports and Airports Driving Industrial Growth

Investors will find value in Atlanta as companies create new corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities. Industrial properties continue to perform well in the metro, as it serves as a unique hub for Southeastern states. The Port of Savannah functions as one of Atlanta’s major industrial drivers as its cargo shipment from European markets often distributes from the metro north and south on both I-87 and I-75 and east/west on I-20. Various flagships like XPO Logistics, Chewy and Amazon have either signed or renewed leases on their warehouse and distribution space. Manufacturing facilities have also come into focus as companies like GE and Hyundai-Mobis expand in the region, triggering third-party vendors to locate nearby. Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport remains a magnet for developers, as the majority of Class A distribution centers underway in the metro are in the airport’s immediate area. Class B properties under construction are spread out across the metro, notably a cluster of distribution and logistics centers situated in the western outskirts of Atlanta toward Lithia Springs.
