May 2022 Group Watch: Macon County Logistics Park Preps For Initial Construction

Construction is scheduled to begin soon on the first building in a logistics park along Interstate 85 in Macon County that backers say could have a massive economic impact when its three phases are developed. The project, called the Regional East Alabama Logistics Park, stems from a partnership between the Macon County Economic Development Authority, Farpoint Development and local businessmen Jimmy and Wayne Bassett. The park will encompass 683 acres at the site of Beck’s Turf Farm off Exit 42 on I-85. The project envisions around 13 buildings offering a combined 5 million square feet of space once the three phases are completed in seven to 10 years. Construction is expected to begin this summer on the first building, a 169,000-square-foot expandable industrial commercial structure. The park is located two miles north of Tuskegee and 15 miles from Auburn. The location is less than 35 miles from the Kia auto assembly plant in West Point, Georgia, and around 50 miles from the Hyundai manufacturing plant in Montgomery.
