STOCKBRIDGE, GA. — Birmingham, Ala.-based Growth Capital Partners (GCP) has recently signed Dollar General Corp., the Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based national discount retailer, to a full-building industrial lease in metro Atlanta. GCP’s Fund II purchased the recently vacated property, located at 500 Business Center Drive in Stockbridge, in March. The 712,040-square-foot property is situated in the South I-75 Atlanta industrial submarket and features 30-foot clear heights, 74 dock doors and seven rail doors. The center is expected to be fully operational in the fourth quarter and will employ approximately 50 Dollar General employees. Reed Davis, Bob Currie and Brad Pope of JLL represented GCP in the lease negotiations, and Scott Delphy of Food Properties Group represented Dollar General. GCP’s Fund II includes 1.9 million square feet of bulk distribution properties in Georgia and Tennessee and 1.9 million square feet of industrial development projects currently under construction in the Carolinas, Florida, Tennessee and Texas. In addition to the Stockbridge facility, Dollar General recently invested $480 million to expand its distribution network with three new facilities planned in Arkansas, Oregon and Colorado.
