Ackerman & Co. Scores Big With Uline Lease In Braselton
Ackerman & Co.'s bet on Braselton is paying off with a 1M SF lease. Shipping supplier Uline has inked a deal to occupy all of Braselton Logistics Center in a 10-year deal. The location will serve as its Southeast logistics hub.
The facility — being developed in a joint venture with The Yates Group and JAC Real Estate investments — is slated to deliver later this year.
The deal means Uline will move and expand from its existing warehouses in both Duluth and Buford, totaling more than 650K SF. The company plans to add jobs to the economy, initially with 450 workers that will grow to a 600-person workforce at the Braselton facility within the next few years, Uline Vice President of Distribution Duke Uihlein said.
Brett Buckner of Ackerman & Co., Todd Yates of The Yates Group and Julian Brown of Transwestern represented the landlord in the lease transaction. Dave Desper and Blaine Kelley of CBRE represented Uline.
