Gillem 200

Project summary provided by submitting company.

This speculative cross-dock warehouse is the first of several buildings in a development by Robinson Weeks at Gillem Logistics Center in the historic decommissioned Army Base Fort Gillem in Forest Park, Georgia. This 36’-0” clear tilt-up concrete distribution building has striking corner office elements featuring sweeping angles and large expanses of glazing. There are office elements on the three corners with one having EIFS until a tenant requires additional glazing. There are knockouts located along the center of the dock wall for potential tenant or dock offices. The four corners have drive-in ramps. The warehouse features many clerestory windows for natural light along the dock walls. There are knock-outs for louvers to allow for three air changes. The slab has been left-out to the pour-back strip at the dock doors to allow for easy installation of any size of tenant required dock levelers of any size. There is trailer parking along both truck courts with auto parking on both ends. Forest Park is centrally located with easy access to I-75, I-285, I-675, the airport and downtown Atlanta.
