OAK BROOK, IL – CenterPoint Properties announces Quala as the newest tenant at CenterPoint Intermodal Center – Savannah. CenterPoint is celebrating the new development with a groundbreaking ceremony on October 15 at 11:00 a.m. in front of the future 35,400 SF built-to-suit container storage facility site. John Neely of Colliers International represented CenterPoint, while Tim Kilkelly of CNL Financial and Bill Sparks of CBRE represented Quala in the transaction.

Quala entered into a 20-year lease on the specialized facility, which is located on 9.67 acres, four miles from the Georgia Ports Authority, adjacent to Highway 307 and within minutes of I-95 and I-16, providing the ultimate location advantage for goods distribution.

“CIC – Savannah will provide Quala an ideal location to provide their industrial client-base with comprehensive cleaning, testing and repair services,” said senior vice president, development of CenterPoint, Brian McKiernan. “We are developing a state-of-the-art building for Quala that is situated within five miles of the port entrance; both the design of the facility and the location allow Quala to access and service a broad range of clients coming to and from the port.”

Facility features include a 10,270 SF office with a driver’s lounge, 22 drive-in bays, 50 car and 166 trailer parking stalls.

“We’re excited to enter the Savannah market and service the growing needs of our valued customers,” said Terry O’Brien, President of Quala. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the design of the facility which enables Quala to offer multiple tank trailer and ISO container services, including chemical and food grade cleaning capabilities, maintenance, repairs and inspections to name a few. Along with our many capabilities, we will also be offering first class office space and driver amenities.”
