Ornstein-Schuler-Brown Announces New Development in Huntsville

New $35 Million Investment Will Support Over 300 Jobs

Today, Ornstein-Schuler-Brown Development LLC (“OSB”) announced its plans to develop Huntsville 565 Logistics, a three (3) building, 420,000 square foot logistics park. 

The Huntsville 565 Logistics park expects to be home to over three hundred workers and represents an investment of over $35,000,000 into the Huntsville area.  The developers indicated that construction should begin early Summer of 2020 with the first phase of 130,000 square feet delivering Q1 2021.  The 32’ clear, Concrete tilt-up, Class “A” industrial facilities are designed to meet the needs of the growing e-commerce industry and local logistical / service requirements.

“In recent years, Northern Alabama has been one of the country’s emerging economic development engines with a great community that understands what it takes to grow and support jobs.  We are excited to be part of this entrepreneurial spirit and to support a new project that will support hundreds of jobs in Huntsville,” said Scott Brown, Executive Vice President at Ornstein-Schuler.

The development will be located on 47 acres at the Greenbrier, Chase Farm exit on I-565 immediately adjacent to the GE Aviation facility.  This area of west Huntsville and this particular exit on I-565 have seen rapid growth with the recent development of several large distribution and manufacturing facilities to include Federal Express, Target, Polaris, and the new $1.6 billion Toyota Mazda manufacturing plant currently under construction.

This is the first of several planned developments by OSB for 2020.  In addition to Huntsville 565 Logistics park, OSB has a site under contract in Greensboro, NC for over 500,000 square feet and is looking at several other sites throughout the growth corridors of the southeast.
