ATLANTA (Oct. 1, 2014) – Looks like Cobb County-based mixed-use developer Pope & Land a key member of the Braves development team, is jumping into the industrial real estate market – in a huge way.
Bridgeport Industrial, planned for 1,064 acres on U.S. 27/29 in Coweta County would become one of metro Atlanta's largest industrial parks, with more than 8 million square feet, according to the just-filed DRI. The site is metro Atlanta's only "Mega-Site," according to Pope & Land.
The development would be completed in 2018 abd include training space. (In other words, Pope & Land might have a large manufacurer in mind for the site already.)
Pope & Land Enterprises affiliate P&L Bridgeport I, L.P. and P&L Bridgeport II, L.P. (yes, the names are misspelled in the DRI filing) have submitted plans to develop Bridgeport Industrial that would comprise more than 7 million square feet of manufacturing space, 294,000 square feet of research-and-design space, 736,000 square feet of wahouse and 100,000 square feet office space.
P&L Bridgeport has asked that the property be rezoned to accommodate its industrial project.
In its home county, Pope & Land is the key member of the development team selected by the Atlanta Braves to create a mixed-use village around the team's planned new stadium.
