Rooker Acquires 600 Acres in Northeast Georgia, Plans 6 MSF Industrial Park
COMMERCE, GA. — Rooker has acquired 600 acres in the northeast Georgia city of Commerce to construct Bana 85 Commerce Center, a planned 6 million-square-foot business and logistics park. Road and utility construction are slated to begin in 2020, as will grading for an initial site to accommodate 1.5 million square feet. Bana 85 Commerce Center will have sites available in a range of sizes for build-to-suit or user sales in the warehousing, distribution and manufacturing sectors. The site is located 20 miles east of Georgia Ports Authority’s 104-acre inland port in Gainesville, which is slated for completion in 2021. Atlanta-based Rooker acquired the undeveloped land by assembling multiple properties within the area. The land acquisition included several industrial-zoned parcels and three commercial-zoned parcels. Brent Story of Avalon Real Estate Partners represented the sellers in the land acquisition.
