MetLife announced today that it will soon break ground on a 3 million square foot industrial park at a cost of $110 million. Named the “Lambert Farms Distribution Center,” the distribution space will be set up to accommodate up to two 1.5 million square foot facilities.
The site will be located in Henry County, Georgia, 25 miles from downtown Atlanta. The project is expected to create 1,200 full-time construction jobs for a warehouse that will feature LEED certified buildings.
Atlanta is just the first stop on MetLife’s warehouse building spree. The insurance behemoth also plans to set up distribution centers in Seattle, Chicago, the Inland Empire market of California and another project in the Northeast Atlanta sub-market.
