ATLANTA-Following a growing national trend by some manufacturers leaning towards mega distribution centers, Kellogg Co. of Battle Creek, MI will break ground this month here on a 900,000-sf, $42.6 million complex.

The breakfast cereal producer has started a $47.4 million, one million-sf comparable center in Minnoka, IL. The combined 1.9 million sf represents a $90 million investment. Completion of both projects is scheduled for 2003.

Profesional Real Estate Services of Newport Beach, CA is developing the Atlanta distribution center for Kellogg. Catellus Development corp. of Woodridge, IL is handling the Illinois project.
