873,800 SF Core5 Logistics Center at Shugart Farms Purchased by Private Investor
ATLANTA, June 19, 2017 – Atlanta-based Core5 Industrial Partners announced today the recent sale of their initial development in Metro Atlanta, 873,800-square-foot Core5 Logistics Center at Shugart Farms, to a private institutional investor. The high cube logistic facility completed construction in early 2017 and is fully leased on a long-term basis to The Duracell Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.
“The location, building quality, site functionality and the tenant were all key elements which made this asset highly sought after by investors,” stated Lisa Ward, Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Core5. “We are delighted with the results of our first investment in Metro Atlanta. Core5 is very bullish on the market and has another 4.8 million square feet in seven projects under construction or in the immediate pipeline around the city. We continue to see significant demand from large-scale users in the metro area with absorption outpacing supply.”
Core5 was represented on the investment sale by Chris Riley, Frank Fallon and Trey Barry of CBRE National Partners.
“Core5 Logistics Center at Shugart Farms was one of the best industrial investment offerings in the country and achieved pinnacle pricing for the Atlanta market,” noted Chris Riley of CRBE National Partners.
