Proposed 1.5 Million-Square-Foot Industrial Park Planned for Nassau County

Atlanta-based Pattillo Industrial Real Estate (PIRE) announced this month that it will develop a 1.5 million-square-foot industrial park in Wildlight, a master-planned mixed-use community in Nassau County, just west of Yulee.

The conceptual site plan for Wildlight Commerce Park shows 12 buildings among two development stages, including 10 buildings for logistics, laboratories, offices, light manufacturing and warehousing – all with needs ranging from 5,000 to 50,000 square feet.

Pattillo will work in partnership with Raydient Places + Properties, a subsidiary of real estate investment trust Rayonier Inc. who designed and established the community in 2017.

Currently, Wildlight spans 24,000 acres with residential homes, rental properties, shops, restaurants, schools and medical facilities all surrounded by parks and nature trails.

“We are looking forward to this park advancing one of the core goals of Wildlight, which is a positive economic impact and job growth for the residents of Nassau County,” said Wildlight Vice President Wes Hinton.

The first building in the Wildlight Commerce Park is anticipated to allow occupancy in spring 2024.
