Lithia Springs, Ga. (Sept. 24, 2020) – Wheelock Street Capital announced it has acquired 242 Westfork Court in Lithia Springs, GA, an 86,630-square foot light-industrial building that was completed in summer 2020 and is located less than three miles from Austell Norfolk Southern Intermodal Terminal.

The building gives local, regional, and national users quick access to Metro Atlanta and the Southeast and features available space ranging between 20,000 and 86,630 square feet. The building includes an existing 2,000-square foot dedicated office space, ESFR sprinkler system, LED lighting, 24’ clear height, 54’ x 50’ column spacing, 60’ deep dock bays, and 34 (9’ x 10’) dock doors, including two drive-ins. A state-of-the-art infill distribution facility, Westfork Commerce Center is also located just over two miles from Interstate 20 and only 7.4 miles from Interstate 285.

The acquisition marks Wheelock’s first industrial purchase in the Atlanta market. “We remain bullish on the prospects for well-located, infill industrial properties within the fast growing southeast markets. Westfork Commerce Center’s location and access offer small and mid-size tenants a great option within the greater Atlanta market,” stated Hunter Jones, Principal for Wheelock Street Capital. “We are excited to be working with Foundry and look forward to welcoming future tenants to the building.”

Foundry Commercial, a full-service real estate services and investment firm, was selected by Wheelock to handle the leasing and management of the recently acquired building. Foundry’s Ryan Blackburn and Jordan Camp are the leasing agents for the building.
