First building completed in June; second scheduled for October occupancy
IRVINE, Calif., July 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CIP Real Estate completed the first of two industrial buildings in its 1.3 million-square-foot Gwinnett Commons portfolio in June. The 88,500-square-foot building is located at 1760 Corporate Drive in Norcross, Georgia, and was pre-leased to a division of Hyundai. Specifically designed for distribution, the building features 28-foot clear height and dock and grade loading with oversize doors.
Additionally, a second industrial distribution building in the portfolio is under construction by CIP Real Estate. Consisting of approximately 89,500-square-feet at 1700 Corporate Drive at the corner of Shackleford Road, the facility is scheduled for occupancy in October. This building was pre-leased to Walgreens for a fully automated distribution warehouse and features above-standard office finishes, 32-foot warehouse clearance, 4,000 amps of power and a secured yard.
The two buildings are situated on surplus land parcels and were originally planned on a spec basis but were leased to both tenants at commencement of construction.
“These two in-fill industrial buildings were the only options in the market for this size of tenant requirement. CIP Real Estate provided design flexibility that allowed for the early lease-up to two credit tenants,” said JR Wright of Strategic Real Estate Partners, the leasing agent for the project.
The two buildings are being developed for approximately $25 million and were financed by Pinnacle Bank. Ordner Construction is the general contractor, and both buildings were designed by Randall Paulson Architects.
