Scannell Properties to Break Ground on Phase II of Gardner Logistics Park

Indianapolis-based Scannell Properties has completed the acquisition of 80 acres in Locust Grove, Georgia, for Phase II of Gardner Logistics Park, a Class A industrial park that could total more than 3 million square feet upon completion. The company expects to break ground by the end of July.

“We’re excited to work with Cushman & Wakefield on our development of the Gardner Logistics Park,” said Scannell Development Associate Zachary Zweifler. “This is a great opportunity to support Locust Grove’s growth today in the Atlanta market.”

James Phillpott, Lisa Pittman and Helen Cauthen of Cushman & Wakefield oversee leasing for the property. Scannell is pursuing multiple build-to-suit sites and opportunities as well as speculative development on a phased basis.

“The activity and success at Phase I have been based on Scannell Properties delivering a first-class industrial park and continued growth and optimism in the industrial sector,” Phillpott said. “Additionally, Mayor Price and the staff at The City of Locust Grove coupled with the Henry County Development Authority have been phenomenal to work with, Henry County continues to be one of the best places to locate a business in the state.”

Located on Highway 42, the park offers a prime location with easy ingress and egress and access to Interstate 75.
