Tradewinds Coastal Logistics Park and Gateway Industrial Park have been named market-ready sites by Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD)

Tradewinds Coastal Logistics Park is now a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development site, expediting the time to market for commercial opportunities.

Glynn County, GA June 3, 2019— Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority announced today that Tradewinds Coastal Logistics Park and Gateway Industrial Park have been named Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) by GDEcD, the state’s marketing, and sales arm.

“The GRAD designation for Tradewinds Coastal Logistics Park and Gateway Industrial Park means that these sites can truly compete on a global stage for new industry and the accompanying jobs,” said Pat Wilson, Commissioner of the Department of Economic Development. “I believe that Brunswick and Glynn County’s efforts to attain the GRAD status will prove highly beneficial.”

Tradewinds Coastal Logistics Park offers industrial users 687 acres and Gateway Industrial Park offers 70 acres in a highly visible location just one mile from Interstate 95. The industrial parks’ convenient location will allow users to take advantage of three shipping ports and commercial flights from three airports; Brunswick, Jacksonville, and Savannah. In addition, Interstate 95 and two Class I railroads can allow for goods and materials to be transported easily.

The GRAD designation indicates that Tradewinds Coastal Logistics Park is shovel-ready. The designation also raises the site’s profile relative to other industrial sites in Georgia through:
