Recently, National Real Estate Investor released a list of predictions for fulfillment centers in 2015. They foresee construction of more facilities to meet the needs of e-commerce growth, a steady buildup of traditional industrial space and an increased willingness from banks to finance speculative projects.
What about Atlanta? We’ve already seen the beginning of the e-commerce trend, with Majestic Realty securing Wal-Mart’s 1.2-million-square-foot facility.
And Vice President of KBD Group Mike Rhinehardt predicts: “We will continue to see an influx of corporate relocations to Atlanta, as the Southeastern United States continues to be the hot bed for new manufacturing facilities.”
