Site work on Building 34 at Flagler Station business park has kicked off recently as Flagler Global Logistics entrusted Miller Construction Company with the development of a new 252,000-square-foot industrial warehouse facility designed by the international architectural firm Ware Malcomb.
Located in Miami’s Airport West submarket, minutes from Broward County, the 900-acre Flagler Station is ranked as South Florida’s largest business park with its campus-like setting. Besides its proximity to the airport it offers easy access to all other major transportation arteries too, such as Port Miami and Port Everglades, and even has a dedicated Turnpike interchange. Industry leaders including Ryder System, LagasseSweet and FedEx, among others, operate facilities at Flagler Station.
This is not the first mutual project of the two companies; Miller Construction Company has just recently finished work on time and within budget on Flagler’s 171,944-square-foot Building 31 at Flagler Station. Dan Marcus, logistics executive vice president of real estate development at Flagler Global, says he is glad that the logistics giant once again partnered with the contractor in order to develop “a new generation of more efficient and flexible warehouses to keep up with rising demand throughout South Florida.”
Starboard Cruise Services, the world’s leading onboard retailer, has already preleased 87 percent of the yet to be built facility. The company will operate its main distribution center in Flagler Station Building 34. Located at 9290 NW 112 Avenue, the construction allows for optimal rack layout with its 30-foot clear ceiling height and a column spacing of 54 feet. Miller’s crews will build out the tenant’s interior space as well.
