Asset Description

a forward commitment opportunity, to-be-completed speculative shell, 548,720 SF, Class-A distribution

center, located within the explosive Savannah, Georgia industrial market. Situated 0.5 miles from Interstate 16 and 13 miles from

to numerous, newly built and stabilized, Class-A assets, proving substantial tenant demand in this location.

Investment Highlights

Port of Savannah

• Savannah is the single largest and fastest-growing container terminal in America. In 2021,

the port moved a record breaking 5.6 million TEUs, growing cargo volumes by 20% year

over year

• The port’s growth has continued at an astounding rate

» January 2022 saw an increase of 3.7% from January 2021 and represents the sixth most

TEUs throughout a single month with over 476,700 TEUs moved

» This marked the eighteenth consecutive month of positive year-over-year growth

• With an estimated 11 million TEU capacity by 2030, industrial occupancy in Savannah is

estimated to reach 180 MSF in the next ten years

» With current inventory sitting at 82 MSF, this equates to a current under supply

of nearly 100 MSF

• Currently undergoing four major expansion projects: Savannah Harbor Expansion Project

(SHEP), Mason Mega Rail Terminal, growing the port container crane fleet, and trucking

gate lane expansion

» Part of the recently announced $3.2 billion investment over the next 10 years ($1 billion

in last 10 years)

» As a part of this investment, Savannah rail improvements will expand and connect CSX

and Norfolk Southern facilities. This will create the largest on-dock intermodal facility

in North America

• Savannah is one of the most well-connected U.S. ports to a diversity of world markets,

and is not dependent on any singular market (i.e. China)

» As manufacturing moves outside of China, Savannah stands to benefit from this

diversification over west coast ports

» Studies show 60% of the time when manufacturing is moved out of China, the import

of these products is moved to east coast ports such as Savannah

» The Port of Savannah currently has 36 weekly port calls (second only to NY/NJ on the

East coast with 37) and will add more as it continues to expand


Investment highlights

Unprecedented industrial market fundamentals

• The 98% leased Savannah industrial market has generated 29.3 MSF of positive

absorption over the last 5 years, with 10.5 MSF in 2021 alone

» Over the same time period, Savannah has maintained a sub 5% vacancy rate, all while

delivering 28.3 MSF, increasing supply by nearly 52%

» Savannah absorbed 10.5 MSF in which is 12.7% of total inventory, and nearly 6.5x the

national average of 1.98%

» While current vacancy sits at 2.3%, there is a lease out for signature on a 1.2 MSF

vacancy and if leased and occupied today, the vacancy rate would drop to 0.8%

• JLL recently ranked Savannah as having the 8th most tracked industrial tenant demand

in the country in the 2021 Tenant Demand Study (26.1 MSF of requirements)

• The market has seen an unprecedented 32% rental rate growth over the last 5 years for

buildings 250,000 SF and larger

• Savannah is a discount to competing port markets which drives new tenant demand

• Pre-leasing remains strong and is expected to continue through 2022. Over 40% of

under-construction buildings are already leased

» There are 3.83 MSF of tenants negotiating leases and when signed throughout Q1 will

increase pre-leasing to 70.5%. Tenant demand is still strong in the +/- 25 MSF range
