HSA Commercial announced today that the firm has started construction on a new 50,000-square-foot regional distribution center for Carrier at 60 Airways Boulevard in Nashville, Tenn. Carrier, a leading manufacturer and distributor of heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration products, is scheduled to take occupancy of the new facility in spring 2015.
Carrier’s distribution center, to be located at the northwest corner of Airways Boulevard and Jetway Drive, will be built to satisfy the tenant’s unique specifications including a 4,000-square-foot area utilized as a showroom and training center. The Carrier facility will be constructed on land next to a 200,000-square-foot industrial building acquired by an HSA partnership in 2010 that was recently fully leased. Both buildings are located adjacent to the Nashville International Airport and tarmac areas in a free trade zone.
In 2010, HSA Commercial completed a separate 71,250-square-foot lease transaction with Carrier at the firm’s 495,000-square-foot Baton Rouge West industrial development in Port Allen, La.
“Carrier has been a great tenant of ours in Baton Rouge, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with them again on this build-to-suit project,” said Craig Phillips, executive vice president of development with HSA Commercial, Inc.
The Carrier distribution center will be designed and built by Nashville-based T.W. Frierson Contractor, Inc. Lee Black at CBRE represented Carrier in the lease transaction.
