Capital Development Partners has begun construction on a $125 million logistics campus at the Port of Savannah in Georgia.
The 190-acre industrial campus will offer dual rail service via Norfolk Southern Railway and CSX. The site also will offer transload capability and more than 2,000 container storage positions, according to a Capital Development press release.
Demand for modern industrial and logistics facilities is fueled by the widening of the Panama Canal, as well as a global e-commerce boom, company officials said.
The first building to be constructed is a 1,075,000-square-foot industrial facility featuring a 40-foot ceiling, cross dock capability and dual rail service ready for occupancy in April 2019.
Construction on the second building — a 1,310,400-square-foot industrial facility featuring a 40-foot clear ceiling, cross dock capability and dual rail service — is expected to begin late this year.
The Savannah Port Logistics Center is a joint venture between Capital Development Partners and Greenfield Partners.
