Real Estate: Lots of Industrial activity, development off Exit 41
By Jess Barron, Lindsey’s Inc. Realtors
There is a lot of industrial activity and development in Coweta County right now. The “Moreland exit,” or exit 41 off of I-85, seems to be in the center of it all. You may have heard about Amazon and “Project Catfish.” You may have seen what Orchard Hills Golf Course has become off Highway 16. I will summarize industrial activity in and around the Moreland area in this article.
The Orchard Hills Business Park, developed by The Meadows Development Corporation, is a 281-acre office, distribution, industrial and commercial development (orchardhillsbusinesspark.com).
Here is a site plan below:
“Project Catfish” is a proposed development of a 155-acre site at the intersection of Newnan Crossing Bypass and Georgia Hwy 16 E. Recently the applicants of the development requested a variance to allow a building on the site to be 100 feet tall, instead of almost 35 feet. The applicants asked to delay the public hearing on rezoning on May 19th’s public hearing (Newnan Times Herald). “Project Catfish” is rumored to be a development for Amazon.
Here is a proposed site plan below:
Amazon is currently leasing a million square foot facility at The Cubes at Bridgeport, just off Hwy 27 in Moreland. This facility is just south of the proposed site for “Project Catfish” and The Orchard Hills Business Park. The company is to add 500 jobs at this site. Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship customer orders (Atlanta Business Chronicle).

It is a historically great time for real estate in Coweta County. With the additions of tremendous industrial sites and Fortune 500 companies like Amazon, Coweta is clearly becoming a very attractive place to conduct big business.
