For Immediate Release:


Richmond Hill, Georgia — January 24, 2022

Raydient Places + Properties announced today the sale of approximately 500 acres at the Belfast Commerce Park, in Heartwood to Anatolia Group Inc. The transaction closed in September 2021. Anatolia Group Inc. is a global private company headquartered in Canada, with offices around the world, which is comprised of two subsidiaries, Anatolia Tile + Stone Inc. and Anatolia Capital Corp.

“We plan to build five prestige Class A distribution centers which will add approximately 7,000,000 square feet of new warehousing space for the booming area thus enabling a host of new employment opportunities, and we are also doing a feasibility analysis for a possible manufacturing facility,” says Bekir Elmaagacli. “We were drawn to this location, not only because of its strategic logistical access to the Port of Savannah, but also be-cause of the strong growing community being built on the east side of Interstate 95. The labor market will be a benefit to us. Anatolia is excited to play a role in the growth of the community and to build a very strong and sustainable future together with Raydient Places + Properties.”

“Balanced growth is and has always been a major concern for our area. Since the incep-tion of the Heartwood community, we’ve kept balance at the top of our priority list. Companies like Anatolia bring with them incredible job opportunities and positive eco-nomic impact,” says Bill Cunningham, Vice President of Real Estate at Raydient Places + Properties, developer of Heartwood. “It is no secret that the location and lifestyle make this area desirable for families, but the same is true for large industry with the proximity to the ports and major interstate connectivity. It will take many years to fully realize the growth opportunity here, but I think we are on a good path.”
