The operations also plan to bring thousands of other businesses to the area, including suppliers and retail operations, such as restaurants.
Enchem Ltd., a supplier to SK Innovation, announced it would invest $61.4 million to build two new manufacturing plants in nearby Jackson County, creating more than 300 jobs.
Diana Food's $50 million office and food manufacturing and warehouse facility and German laminate and wood flooring underlay manufacturer Selit's $45 million plant are less than one mile from the apartment complex. Additionally, GE Appliances' new distribution center is four miles from Capstone, while Southeast Toyota Distributor's 350,000-square-foot facility is just six miles away.
Meanwhile, Amazon and Walmart have leased more than one million square feet each in nearby Pendergrass, Georgia, while Toyota Industries Compressor Parts America is expanding its manufacturing facility, also in Pendergrass. These companies, and others, have targeted northeast Georgia as ideal for manufacturing and distribution activities.
Capstone is an exceptional addition to the Capital Square portfolio, The property is newly built and caters to higher-end renters in an economically thriving part of Georgia. Expanding employment centers in the region will drive continued population and employment growth, which should lead to even greater demand for quality housing options, such as those provided by Capstone at Banks Crossing Apartments."
