Miller Begins Construction on Cypress Pointe Distribution Center for Developer Foundry Commercial

Cypress Pointe NEWS

Miller Construction has started construction on Cypress Pointe Distribution Center alongside developer Foundry Commercial, bringing 153,496 square feet of next-generation warehouse/industrial space to the northeast Broward market.

Centrally located on 9.2 acres at 1899 SW 13th Court in Pompano Beach, Cypress Pointe Distribution Center marks Miller Construction’s tenth major project with Foundry Commercial. Designed by RLC Architects of Boca Raton, the single-building, tilt-wall development close to Interstate 95 and Florida’s Turnpike will maximize logistical efficiency with 54-foot column spacing, 32-foot clear ceiling height and a 120-foot truck court. Foundry Commercial is developing the business park for owner Link Logistics Real Estate, a Blackstone portfolio company.

“With today’s resurgent demand, Pompano Beach offers strong development opportunities,” said Foundry Commercial Principal David Blount. “The city’s central location and dynamic redevelopment efforts, in addition to its business-friendly climate and the area’s ready workforce enhance the outlook for new industrial and distribution space in the market.”

Cypress Pointe Distribution Center is on a fast-track for completion in the second quarter of 2021, according to Miller Construction President Brian Sudduth. Leasing is being directed by Cushman & Wakefield, whose fourth-quarter 2020 Marketbeat report showed the average net rent for Pompano Beach warehouse/distribution space rising with active demand. Construction project team members include Miami-based engineers Puga & Associates, Inc. (MEP) and DDA Engineers, as well as Flynn Engineering of Fort Lauderdale (civil).

Design/build and construction services firm Miller Construction is also underway with Foundry Commercial’s 312,592-square-foot Midpoint Miami Logistics Park in Hialeah Gardens, and two more projects for the developer are under contract to begin before year-end, Sudduth said.
