MCC Launches Two New Buildings At Foundry Commercial Partners’ Miami Central Commons Business Park
In its latest project for Foundry Commercial, Miller Construction Company is underway with two new Class A buildings totaling 318,043 square feet at the Miami Central Commons business park.
Purchased by Foundry Commercial in 2017, the business park at 2301 NW 107 Avenue was previously known as Miami Free Zone. The park has two existing buildings. Miller’s $20.6 million tilt-wall construction project is creating 155,350 square feet of showroom space with Building 1 and 162,693 square feet of industrial distribution space with Building 2.
Geared to the Miami-Dade market’s record high demand for next-generation industrial space, the buildings will bring tenants the duty-free advantages of a foreign trade zone location. Designed by RLC Architects of Boca Raton, the buildings will provide 32-foot clear height ceilings and 54-foot column spacing, with a 60-foot speed bay.
While keeping the business park’s operations in full swing, Miller’s crews are relocating the main entry and security check-in area as well as the entire parking area around the existing buildings. They are demolishing the park’s original 1980’s administration and security check-in building as the site is reconfigured to accommodate Building 2. Both fast-tracked buildings are scheduled for completion in mid-2019.
“Keeping conditions convenient and seamless for our existing tenants is crucial, and Miller’s team brings both expertise and a great customer service attitude to every project they tackle,” said Ford Gibson, Miami Managing Director – Development and Investments for Foundry Commercial. Miller most recently teamed with the development firm in creating the 602,617-square-foot second phase at Centergate Business Park in Hialeah. The design build and general contracting firm draws on experience building more than four million square feet of South Florida industrial spec and build-to-suit space throughout more than four decades.
As upscale industrial space, the two new Miami Central Commons buildings’ exteriors will have a distinctive look with upgraded tilt-wall entry features and works by local artists. In addition to RLC Architects, the project team includes engineers Puga & Associates (MEP), DDA Engineers (structural) and Kimley-Horn (civil). Exclusive leasing agent for Miami Central Commons is Fairchild Partners, a premier commercial real estate firm based in Coral Gables.
