The Atlanta industrial market is comprised of more than 400 million square feet of leased and owner-occupied space. The city is known as the capital of the Southeast and is a major distribution center due to its comprehensive transportation network of air, rail and interstate highway systems. Atlanta is served by two railroads and the world’s busiest airport. Flights out of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport reach 80 percent of the major cities in America within only two hours. Additionally, Atlanta is the convergence of Interstates I-20, I-85 and I-75, and 80 percent of the U.S. population can be reached via freight shipments within 24 hours.
With relatively inexpensive and developable industrial land, a desirable quality of life, moderate climate, favorable cost of living, tax incentives and solid infrastructure, Atlanta is well positioned to continue its role as home to many of the country’s Fortune 500 firms and major distribution centers.
Richard Bowers & Co.’s Industrial Division is well staffed to serve industrial real estate requirements on a tenant and landlord representation, disposition and investment basis.
