Union Avenue Kroger continues to develop, bringing vision to fruition.
Pickering Firm, Inc. is serving as Panattoni Development’s Architectural, Structural and Civil Engineering firm of choice for its Gateway Global Logistics Center (GGLC), a 1,500-acre industrial park site located in both Fayette County, Tennessee and Marshall County, Mississippi.
The park is adjacent to the Norfolk Southern intermodal terminal and accessed via Highway 72 and Highway 302 from SR 385 and future I-269. There is heavy-duty road access throughout the park, allowing future tenants the ability to maximize container loads. A $30 million widening project of Highway 72 will feature a flyover of Highway 72 over GGLC's park road with cloverleaf access to the park.
At this time, construction is complete on 6 of the build-to-suit facilities:
Construction is about to begin for GGLC’s Spec 5 building, which totals 554,000 SF. Since GGLC’s opening, Pickering has provided engineering and architectural design services for nearly 6 million total square feet of facilities.
The initial phase of design development included master site planning of the entire 1,500-acre park. Consideration was given to infrastructure needs and access for each building along with earthwork to allow for balanced sites and master stormwater detention design. The individual building projects have included site planning, grading, storm drainage and detention design, sanitary sewer, domestic water and fire protection, and phased erosion control.
