A new development at the former Orchard Hills Golf Club is moving forward with infrastructure improvements. Prologis, a logistics real estate investment company, is currently in phase one of its large-scale construction project in which a distribution center will be built at the site of the former golf course located at 600 GA-16 in Newnan.
“Right now, they are waiting on a specific customer before they begin construction on the building, so it’s going to be a build-to-suit for whoever decides to go into that location,” said Coweta County Development Authority President Trae Westmoreland.
Westmoreland said Prologis plans to build a distribution center on 280 acres at the former Orchard Hills Golf Club.
A Prologis spokesperson told The City Menus that the company hopes to finish construction on the 1.2-million-square-foot facility by early 2019. According to renderings obtained by The City Menus, “Building “100” will have up to 234 docks while a “Building 200” will be slightly larger at 1,492,400-square-feet and will have 318 dock doors.
“They are still waiting on a buyer; it’s going to be a build-to-suit project,” said Westmoreland. “The owners of the park who bought the property from the golf course will have 70 acres remaining that they will have the option to create a manufacturing site or commercial and retail space on the frontage.”
Westmoreland praised the project as part of a number of positive growth developments in the area.
“It’s another sign of continued growth in this 85-South corridor,” said Westmoreland. “We’re doing our best to manage and get the best kind of growth we can, as well as making sure we don’t overburden our local area. This development will bring in good tax revenue and good growth for our community.”
