Building B, offering 1.1 million square feet (MSF) of industrial space to a future tenant, was recently finished at Southern Gateway at Lambert Farms. The development, approved by the board of commissioners in 2015, includes 260 acres and will total approximately 3.4 MSF of industrial space upon completion.

Southern Gateway at Lambert Farms is located off State Route 42 and King Mill Road in McDonough. Plans include four buildings at full build-out. Building A will be the largest on-site with close to 1.6 MSF under one roof. Other buildings C & D offer smaller build to suit opportunities ranging between 275,400 square feet and 358,400 square feet of space.

King Mill Road home to several pre-recession projects

The property is surrounded by other developments approved a decade ago. Located immediately to the east, Lambert Farms Logistics Park contains the initial 181 acres that were rezoned in 2009. That property contains two buildings housing tenants Tory Burch and Ghirardelli chocolate.

Across the highway, Majestic King Mill Commerce Center totaling 163 acres was approved in 2007. That property, best recognizable as the home of Whirlpool, delivered a new 250,000 square foot building earlier this year.

These projects represent only a small percentage of the total industrial space under construction throughout metropolitan Atlanta. The growing demand for industrial space is driven by Georgia’s emphasis on the port of Savannah expansion project and a growing market share for e-commerce shopping. Since the land was rezoned years ago, no approval is required by local elected officials today for these developments to build.
