Rockefeller Group Breaks Ground on 222K-SF Distribution Center in Metro Atlanta

Real estate developer, owner and operator Rockefeller Group has broken ground on a 222,330-square-foot speculative distribution center in Braselton, GA.

Located along the I-85 North corridor on Broadway Avenue in Braselton, the building is slated to be completed in the first quarter of 2021. It will be a front-load, multi-tenant distribution building with 32-foot clear ceiling heights, up to 233 parking spaces and up to 63 trailer spaces. Rockefeller’s Steven McGee is leading the development of the project.

“The North Atlanta industrial submarket along I-85 has seen high demand over the past several years with low vacancies and high absorption, mostly driven by larger users,” said McGee. “The Braselton site is within a four-hour drive of more than 21 million people. By entering the market with a small-bay, light industrial building, we feel we can offer a flexible building design for smaller tenants looking to enter the market or existing tenants looking to expand.”
