Officials recently broke ground on the 2.2 million square foot Huntsville Logistics Center. The development will include four buildings situated on 132 acres located at Old Highway 20 and Gunters Way, just off County Line Road, close to the Amazon and Buffalo Rock plants.

Edwin Moss, J.H. Berry & Gilbert executive vice president, said he expects the project to bring more than 700 jobs to the area, not to include 450 jobs that will be part of the construction. The work will be done in phases on the Huntsville Logistics Center. The first phase of the project will include two warehouse buildings with more than 1 million square feet of modern bulk distribution.

The construction is expected to be completed early next year, and the facility will have immediate access to I-65 and the Huntsville International Airport.

“Huntsville is the fastest growing city in Alabama, and we believe the Huntsville Logistics Center is a perfect site for both logistics and industrial businesses with its strategic location between the new Greenbrier Parkway and the Huntsville airport,” said Edwin Moss, J.H. Berry & Gilbert executive vice president, according to a release. “The Flint Development team that will be delivering this project has extensive experience and has delivered several similar Class A projects around the country. We are honored to be a part of this new addition to the Huntsville landscape.”

Buildings 1 and 3 will be expandable up to +/-1,261,980 square feet, and Buildings 2 and 4 will be expandable up to 939,060 square feet. All four buildings have the ability to accommodate tenants with large square footage, heavy transportation or utility needs. The site is located within access to I-565, Mazda Toyota Manufacturing U.S.A. campus and the Huntsville International Airport.

“When you look at some of the leading employers in Huntsville, including giants such as Polaris, Mazda Toyota Manufacturing, Buffalo Rock, Amazon, LG Electronics, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and of course NASA, the Huntsville Logistics Center is positioned alongside some exciting industrial business leaders and innovators,” Moss said. “Our Industrial team knows that this will be an exceptional addition to the Huntsville business community.”
