Ackerman & Co. Completes a 22,176-Square-Foot Industrial Lease with D-BAT Baseball & Softball Academy of Johns Creek in Georgia

Atlanta, November 19, 2015 – Ackerman & Co. recently completed a long-term, 22,176-square-foot industrial lease with D-BAT of Johns Creek, one of the premier baseball and softball training facilities in the country. The property is located at 3985 Lakefield Court in Suwanee, Ga.

Ackerman & Co. Vice President Joseph Harland, II, managed the site selection process and the lease on behalf of the tenant. The landlord was represented by GF Property Group, Inc.

“It was a challenge to find the just-right location to meet our exact requirements,” said Casey Cavell, founding partner. “However, this facility was an ideal match for the company,” he added.

Well established in Atlanta but new to the North Fulton submarket, D-BAT’s decision to open a new facility at this particular location was influenced in part by the current tenant mix, Get Air Trampoline Park and Crossfit. Together, the complimentary mix creates the right synergies and opportunities for future growth. Secondly, strong City of John’s Creek demographics and remarkable retail density (the second highest concentration of retail/restaurant amenities in the nation) added to the building’s appeal. Add the right dimensions, clear heights and parking, the fit was perfect.
