Macon County logistics park project preps for initial construction

TUSKEGEE, Alabama — Construction is scheduled to begin soon on the first building in a logistics park along Interstate 85 in Macon County that backers say could have a massive economic impact when its three phases are developed.

The project, called the Regional East Alabama Logistics (REAL) Park, stems from a partnership between the Macon County Economic Development Authority (MCEDA), Farpoint Development and local businessmen Jimmy and Wayne Bassett.

The park, developed by Farpoint, will encompass 683 acres at the site of Beck’s Turf Farm off Exit 42 on I-85. The project envisions around 13 buildings offering a combined 5 million square feet of space once the three phases are completed in seven to 10 years.
