ATLANTA (August 30, 2018) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced design is complete and construction has begun on the new 985 Lanier Logistics Center project located on Georgia State Route 13 and Lanier Islands Parkway in Buford, Georgia. Ware Malcomb provided architectural design services for the project, which is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019.

The 985 Lanier Logistics project is comprised of three Class A industrial buildings totaling 615,572 square feet. The 44-acre project will accommodate tenant suites ranging from 25,000 to 236,000 square feet. The three buildings – which are 209,252 square feet, 167,080 square feet, and 236,240 square feet in size, respectively – feature 32-foot clear heights and 38- to 42-foot dock high doors. The design incorporates tilt-up concrete panels, glass, and a framed metal canopy at the building’s entrance. To allow for natural daylight, the warehouse features celestory windows throughout. The project also includes 160 tractor-trailer stalls.

985 Lanier Logistics is conveniently located within easy access to Interstates 985 and 85.

“We are excited to help bring this new, state-of-the-art industrial center to this developing market,” Jason Dooley AIA, Regional Director of Ware Malcomb’s Atlanta office. “985 Lanier Logistics will fill a tremendous need for businesses, and we have designed the space to be flexible enough to accommodate the various requirements of a range of potential tenants.”
