Project Overview

Gillem Logistics Center (the former Fort Gillem Army Base) is an 1168-acre master planned park that can accommodate over 8 million square feet of industrial space and one-half million square feet of mixed-use buildings. The state-of-the-art regional distribution and e-commerce logistics center is fully zoned and entitled, with new infrastructure including a four-lane divided spine road, a GA Power substation and fiber within the park.

Located within the city limits of Forest Park, Ga., Gillem Logistics Center is within 4.5 miles of Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, 12 miles from downtown Atlanta and close proximity to I-285, I-75 and I-85. It is within one-half mile of the Anvil Block interchange of I-675.

Forest Park Development Partners is the Master Developer and is charged with master planning, marketing, and project managing, and the firm has rights to develop a significant portion of Gillem Logistics Center. Robinson Weeks Partners is the general partner of Forest Park Development Partners.

Robinson Weeks Partners developed a 848,4521 square foot distribution building in the Fall of 2016. The building is designed for regional distribution and e-commerce.

The Kroger Company (NYSE:KR) purchased 253 acres of land in June of 2014 and is developing a regional distribution center of up to two (2) million square feet. With plans to invest $200 million into the new distribution facility over the next five years, the company’s first building, 1.2 million square feet is complete and opened in the fall of 2015.
