IDI Signs 192,780 SF with R.N.C. Industries in NE Atlanta
Hamilton Mill Business Center Building I Fully Leased
ATLANTA DECEMBER 02, 2011– IDI, a leading full-service industrial real estate company, has signed a new lease with R.N.C. Industries Inc. in the northeast Atlanta sub-market totaling 192,780 square feet. R.N.C. Industries will occupy space in Building I at IDI’s Hamilton Mill Business Center, located at 2510 Mill Center Parkway in Buford, Ga., beginning in December of this year. Joining Daimler Trucks North American, LLC (376,380 SF), and Mizuno USA, Inc. (301,320 SF), R.N.C. will bring Building I to full occupancy.
R.N.C. Industries, one of the leading manufacturers of shipping containers for temperature sensitive products, will use the facility for storage, production, shipping and distribution of their products. The company previously operated out of approximately 110,000 square feet of space in Lawrenceville, Ga.
“R.N.C. sought a larger, Class-A space that they could build out to their current requirements, but that also provided the option for future expansion,” said Lisa Ward, vice president of leasing for IDI’s Atlanta market office. She added, “We were able to meet all of these needs with the Hamilton Mill space and the Gwinnett County location provided further incentive to R.N.C. through lower taxes and utility costs.”
Notable features of Building I include 32-foot clear heights, a 185-foot-deep truck court, 54-foot by 50- to 60-foot column spacing and early suppression fast response (ESFR) sprinklers. Strategically located at Hamilton Mill Parkway and I-985, IDI-owned Hamilton Mill Business Center consists of seven buildings totaling 2.8 million square feet and offers easy access to I-85, I-985, Buford Highway and Georgia 20.
