12052020 WAREHOUSE.jpg

Update, April 22: Hall County Commissioners approved a proposal from developer Nemrod Ovis LLC to construct a 50,000-square-foot warehouse-office park off White Sulphur Road.

The proposal calls for the annexation of six acres at the intersection of Navajo Circle and White Sulphur Road into the city with a zoning of light industrial.

The site plan shows five buildings proposed to be between 8,000 and 12,000 square feet in size. 

The project was originally for 60,000 square feet of space for warehouse or office buildings but was withdrawn in January before Gainesville City Council could vote on the matter.

Rex Baker Jr., representing Nemrod Ovis at the meeting, said that he wanted the flexibility to downsize to 50,000 square feet as developers are still in the engineering process.

“We want it to be practical,” said Baker Jr. “We want to maximize the site but we want it to be logical and practical.”


Update, Jan. 19: Plans for a warehouse-office park off White Sulphur Road in Gainesville are no more — at least for now.

Officials said at the Gainesville City Council meeting Tuesday, Jan. 19, that developer Nemrod Ovis LLC had withdrawn a proposal for 60,000 square feet of space for warehouse or office buildings at the site.


Update, Dec. 8: A warehouse-office park off White Sulphur Road in Gainesville was given initial approval Tuesday night and will now move on to the Gainesville City Council for a final vote.

The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board recommended approval Dec. 8 of Nemrod Ovis LLC’s request to allow for 60,000 square feet of space for warehouse or office buildings, with each building ranging from 7,500 to 18,500 square feet in size, according to city documents

Nemrod Ovis LLC is seeking to annex about six acres at the intersection of Navajo Circle and White Sulphur Road into the city with a zoning of light industrial.

Other industrial uses in the area include Big Creek Foods and ACH Foam Technologies.

The proposal will be heard by Gainesville City Council on Jan. 19.
