MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) — Developers plan to build a $110 million distribution complex south of Atlanta, where they hope to attract manufacturers or other companies looking to transport goods in the region.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://on-ajc.com/1k6fR7Y ) insurance giant MetLife has invested in the project along with a California real estate company, Panattoni Development Co. The partners said Wednesday they plan to develop 183 acres in Henry County, about 15 miles south of Atlanta's airport.
The Lambert Farms Distribution Center, as the project is being called, joins other recent high-profile development projects south of Atlanta such as a Kroger distribution center at Fort Gillem, the former Army post, and automaker Porsche's new North American headquarters at Georgia's former Ford plant.
