MOBILE, AL, April 6, 2021 –
Burton Property Group, a southeast-based real estate development firm unveiled details on plans to develop a master-planned industrial park within the city of Mobile, South Alabama Logistics Park (SALP). The project is the result of a 3-year effort between Burton Property Group, the County of Mobile, City of Mobile, Port of Mobile, and the Mobile Area of Chamber of Commerce resulting in the development of a 1,300-acre Class A park which will be located off I-10 in South Mobile County.
The project has received Infrastructure support from both the City of Mobile and the County of Mobile. South Alabaman Logistics Park (“SALP”) is aimed at providing class A Industrial Warehouse and Distribution Space for the growing number of Port Users and potential light manufacturers who need to be located in close proximity to the Port of Mobile and Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley. With over 6,000,000 square feet planned in Phase 1, SALP would be the largest in the State of Alabama and one of the largest in the Southeast.
“Having the support of the City and County of Mobile has been a major catalyst to bringing this project, and the stimulus it will create, to reality. This truly has been a partnership. The total investment for phase one, once fully developed, will be over $350 million and we are projecting over a 1,000 jobs for South Mobile County said Philip Burton, CEO of Burton Property Group.
Burton Property Group is expecting to close on the property this summer and is in the process of investing in needed infrastructure to attract the target. The company will construct speculative sites as well as offer a build-to-suit option.
