DOUGLASVILLE, GA-Five miles west of Downtown Atlanta, Douglas County already has been tapped by major industrial and mixed-use players for near-future, multimillion-dollar ventures. New to the arena is Staples Inc., the Framingham, MA-based office materials supplier which plans to develop a 400,000-sf, estimated $20-million warehouse and distribution center here.

The new industrial campus will serve Staples’ Southeast territory, filling orders for businesses that have ordered supplies from the Internet or from catalogs, the company says. The warehouse-distribution center is planned for the 244-acre, 2.3-million-sf Terminus West Business Park. The park opened on Blairs Bridge Road near Interstate 20 in 2002 by First Industrial Realty Inc. of suburban Lithia Springs.

The new center, expected to create 155 jobs, will replace two smaller Staples properties on Fulton Industrial Boulevard and another on Gwaltney Drive, according to the Douglas County Development Authority.

Dominating the future Douglas County development scene will be the estimated $2-billion, 11,800-acre mixed-use community the Douglasville division of Austin, TX-based Temple-Inland Inc. which plans 500 acres of office space, 500 acres of retail, 19,000 town homes, a conference center, golf course and a 2,500-acre public park. The developer is waiting final approvals from local and state agencies.

Also in Douglas County, Atlanta-based Seefried Industrial Properties Inc. plans a total 920,000 sf of new warehouse structures at Douglas Hill Business Park. Catellus Development Corp. of Dallas, GA is also developing 150,000 sf of industrial product in the same park. Catellus has another industrial project in the county in the 170-acre Thornton Road Business Park where APL Logistics is the anchor tenant.
