Miller Launches Upscale 186,822 SF Bldg. 5 At EastGroup Properties’ Gateway Commerce Park
Miller Construction is fast-tracking the 186,822-square-foot Building 5 at Gateway Commerce Park, the construction services firm’s second Class A office/warehouse project at the business park for developer/owner EastGroup Properties.
Miller recently completed the 200,372-square-foot Gateway Commerce Park Building 1 and built out space in that structure for tenants Maintenance Supply Headquarters, National Tire Wholesale, Goodman Distribution and EastGroup Properties. Working closely with architects Horton, Harley & Carter of Tampa, Miller’s preconstruction team value-engineered the structural steel system to create savings in both Buildings 1 and 5. Construction of Building 5 is on track for Summer 2019 delivery.
The highly visible, $7.5 million Building 5 will offer 1,000 feet of frontage along Florida’s Turnpike. Architectural design elements including hurricane-impact showroom glass, tilt-panel entry features and metal canopies will create an upscale look and feel. To ensure efficient workflow for tenants, the concrete tilt-wall structure will provide 32-foot clear-height ceilings, 54 by 50-foot column spacing and dock-high rear loading.
“Speed to market and efficient, next-generation design are essential to capture the Miami market’s intense demand for new industrial space,” said Miller Construction President Brian Sudduth. “We’re pleased to partner with EastGroup Properties to streamline the firm’s Miami-Dade County market entry.”
The 61-acre business park is located at the southwest corner of Florida’s Turnpike and County Line Road (NW 215th Street) Miami Gardens, and is planned to include a total of 850,000 square feet of industrial space at build-out. The park’s location is a competitive advantage, with easy access to major highways including Florida’s Turnpike, I-95 and the Palmetto Expressway, and proximity to Miami-Dade and Broward County’s major airports and seaports.
The project team for Gateway Commerce Park Building 5 includes Clear Engineering (MEP), Center for Innovative Structures (structural engineering) and Ludovici & Orange Consulting (civil engineering). JLL is handling leasing for both Buildings 1 and 5.
