The sale of three industrial buildings for telecom hotels is rejuvenating Atlanta’s rundown west end industrial area.

Yale GSG Lee Real Estate Ltd., a subsidiary of Yale Properties of Canada, bought a 280,000-sf former food warehouse for $2.5 million or $8.93 psf.

Telcom Holdings of Atlanta paid an estimated $1 million or about $9.09 psf for a 90,000 sf-building and a nearby 20,000 sf structure.
