LITHIA SPRINGS, GA-First Industrial Realty Trust Inc. has signed ConMed Corp. to a 157,200-sf lease in its newest and last building at First Park Terminus West. The 2.2-million-sf industrial park near Interstate 20 West in Douglas County has slightly more than half of the 330,000-sf Building 100 available for lease at 1250 Terminus Drive.

ConMed, a medical products manufacturer specializing in surgical instruments and devices, will utilize the space as its East Coast distribution center, says Tommy Hiles, First Industrial’s marketing and leasing director in Atlanta. The company’s global reputation in the field of medical technology makes it a perfect tenant for the facility, he says.

“It’s going to be an ideal two-tenant building,” Hiles tells GlobeSt.com. He adds that First Industrial’s priority will be to attract clean industry and distribution tenants to Building 100, which features front loading docks and 32-foot ceilings.

Chicago-based First Industrial, which has nearly ten million sf of inventory throughout the Atlanta area, has been developing First Park Terminus West for most of this decade, landing major tenants such as Maytag Corp. and Staples Inc. Most recently, it signed Exel Logistics late last year to the entire 585,000-sf Building 200.

“Despite what has been going on with the economy, we’ve managed to stay immune to it,” Hiles says. He notes that First Park Terminus West might be able to expand farther if more land was available.

“The overall interest in First Park Terminus West has been very high,” says Todd Barton, first vice president with CB Richard Ellis in Atlanta who assisted First Industrial with the ConMed lease. He notes that its proximity to two I-20 interchanges and the Norfolk Southern Corp. intermodal terminal has helped the industrial park’s success.

Greg Haynes, CBRE senior vice president, worked with Barton in lease negotiations. Another CBRE broker, Brent Weitnauer, represented ConMed.
