ATLANTA-Dallas-based J.A. Green Development Corp., a 60-year-old name synonymous with the development and management of airport-adjacent industrial buildings, plans to break ground in January on the first 350,000-sf phase of the J.A. Green International Distribution Center, a planned 905,000-sf, 72-acre business park at West Fayetteville and Pleasant Hill roads in nearby Clayton County.

The park will comprise 715,000 sf of warehouse, air cargo and freight-forwarding space and 190,000 sf of office. The spec-built park is expected to be completed in 2006.

The site is a mile from Hartsfield International Airport and will be competing with nearby product from several developers including Atlanta-based Seefried Properties, area brokers tell

Green has comparable airport-adjacent properties in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, TX and Seattle. The family-owned and operated company moved its headquarters staff in 1998 to Texas from Great Neck, NY where the firm had been an industry fixture since its founding in 1941.
