Media release: Black Creek Group, a Denver-based real estate investment manager and development firm with a more than 25-year history, announces the purchase of 53 acres in the I-75 Northwest Atlanta area for the development of a three-building Class A, industrial park. The park will total 777,000 square feet and will be able to accommodate multiple tenants ranging from 40,000 square feet to 400,000 square feet.
“We are very excited to add such a high-quality site to our development pipeline,” said Matt Breaux, Black Creek Group’s senior vice president for the Southeast Region. “Industrial fundamentals are strong across-the-board in the Greater Atlanta area but the I-75 Northwest submarket has pent up demand with very limited new supply.” He noted that the vacancy rate in the submarket is just 3.6%, compared to about 5.7% for Atlanta as a whole.
Dubbed River Point, the project is in Emerson and represents the firm’s third industrial development in the Atlanta area. The development will bring Black Creek’s industrial footprint in the region to approximately 5.8 million square feet. Initial plans call for construction to commence on all three building in the fourth quarter of this year.
