ATLANTA-Locally based restaurant chain Chick-fil-A Inc. has signed a long-term build-to-suit lease with locally based Oakmont Industrial Group, which will construct two buildings totaling 205,000 sf within the Parkway Logistics Centre development. Oakmont expects to break ground in May with the buildings scheduled to be completed by the fourth quarter.

Sean Boswell, Chris Tomasulo and Chris Cummings, of Colliers Spectrum Cauble, represented Oakmont in the transaction. “Oakmont’s location adjacent to our Buffington Road corporate campus coupled with a high-quality business park environment initially drew our attention,” says Chick-fil-A senior vice president of real estate and general counsel Bureon Ledbetter. “These new facilities will provide much needed office/distribution space, which will aid in Chick-fil-A’s continued expansion efforts.”

Parkway Logistics Centre is located off South Fulton Parkway near the intersection of Interstate 85 and Interstate 285 and is in close proximity to the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The general contractor on the project is the Conlan Co. and the architect is Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart & Associates. The development will have 28-ft to 32-ft clear height ceilings, multiple store front entrances, ESFR fire protection systems, full-concrete truck courts and reinforced floor slabs with vapor barrier protection.

When fully built out, the business park will have five buildings with 755,000 sf. Two of the buildings have already been constructed and two will be constructed for Chick-fil-A. Construction of the fifth building, a 137,000-sf speculative building will begin shortly after construction for the Chick-fil-A buildings begins.

“After we secured the leases with Chick-fil-A we felt we could move forward with the speculative building,” Oakmont senior vice president of development Tom Cobb tells GlobeSt.com. “Marketing efforts for that building will begin after we begin construction.”
