THE DEAL SHEET
Following its grand merger with AMB, ProLogis plans to ?right size? in Atlanta. (Good news for Goldilocks; she's sick of trying everything before she finds the right size.)
 
brian cardoza prologis amb right size atlanta industrial summit bisnow grand hyatt spec merger
That's the message from Prologis' Brian Cardoza, who told our audience at this year's Atlanta Industrial Summit at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead last Friday that Prologis is reconsidering its portfolio companywide, including in Atlanta and may even ?reconsider? secondary markets. Brian did not elaborate. But Prologis is building spec across the country, including a 400k SF facility in California, two spec warehouses in the DC market, and even a Bed Bath & Beyond build-to-suit of 700k SF in New Jersey. ?In Atlanta? I'll echo what's been said. We've got to lease space. We're not going to go spec any time soon,? he says.
