Florida company buys 22 acres in Pooler for industrial building

A Florida company has announced the purchase of 22 acres near Interstates 95 and 16 in Pooler for an industrial building.

McCraney Property Company officials said they will develop a 345,600 square-foot building at the site. They have named the property 95 Logistics@Pooler Parkway.

The building will have about 48 dock-high doors and 100 tractor-trailer parking spaces. The building design will allow for the option of subdividing the space for tenants ranging in size from 100,000 to 345,600 square feet.

“Savannah’s expanding port continues to fuel the environment for the success of large logistics companies,” said Steven McCraney, president and CEO of McCraney Property Company. “The port has the necessary infrastructure in place to support high traffic without congestion as well as available land for much industrial growth in the coming years. Now is the ideal time to enter the Savannah market, and our development provides the perfect location for industrial users who will be drawn to its easy access to the Savannah Port, the Savannah Airport, and Georgia’s main interstate arteries offering connectivity throughout the Southeast.”

Steve Croy, principal of Croy Group, LLC, represented McCraney Property Company during the Savannah land acquisition. The transaction comes on the heels of McCraney Property Company announcing 1.7 million square feet of industrial projects under development or planned in Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; and Rock Hill, S. C.; with Principal-Managing Director Dave Williams providing oversight.

“With rising demand causing historically low vacancy rates and record absorption activity, new construction is the only way for Savannah to sustain its current rate of growth fueled by e-commerce and its hub-and-spoke locational requirements,” said Croy. “We are pleased to have facilitated McCraney Property Company’s land acquisition for its first industrial project in this robust market.”
