The Louisville industrial real estate market is about to get another modern distribution facility. Grisanti Group Commercial Real Estate has sold a 29-acre parcel of land for industrial development. The property is 7830 National Turnpike in Louisville’s Southside/Airport industrial submarket. Grisanti Group represented the seller in the transaction. The buyer plans to construct an approximately 400,000 square foot modern logistics/distribution facility.
A tenant for the proposed warehouse has not yet been announced, but our bet would be that an e-commerce distribution facility eventually calls this beautiful property home. As this article from Wealth Management states, “E-commerce had been averaging gains of 10 percent annually throughout much of the past decade, but those numbers have skyrocketed in recent years. A recent Deloitte study predicts that e-commerce will account for 30 percent of all U.S. retail sales by 2030.” Regional distribution facilities that enable “e-tailers” to provide customers with expedited delivery and return service are a crucial component of the e-commerce supply chain. The Louisville industrial real estate market has seen this boom result in millions of square feet in construction for logistics and distribution warehouses for e-commerce tenants over the last decade.
This new facility at 7830 National Turnpike will fit that mold. Grisanti Group is proud to have helped our client capitalize on this trend.
