Miller Starts Construction at Midpoint Miami Logistics Park
Miller Construction has site work underway for owner/developer Foundry Commercial’s 312,592-square-foot Midpoint Miami Logistics Park on an 18-acre site at 14501 NW 109 Ave. in Miami-Dade County’s bustling Hialeah Gardens industrial market.
Miller’s early challenges in the two-building industrial park’s fast-track construction schedule included obtaining a Class IV wetlands permit, and site clearing and earth moving are taking place. To complete the complex in early summer 2021, Miller will begin construction of the 147,974-square-foot Building 1, which contains the fire pump for both structures, and start the 164,618-square-foot Building 2 about four weeks later.
Located near the intersection of Florida’s Turnpike and U.S. 27, and close to Interstate 75, Midpoint Miami Logistics Park will provide next-generation industrial space in a market responding to intense demand spurred by the uptick in ecommerce during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“With South Florida a key growth market for us, Miller Construction’s counsel, precision, and focus on adding value for complex projects gives us a strong competitive edge,” said Foundry Commercial Principal David Blount.
Midpoint Miami Logistics Park is the design/build and construction services contractor’s ninth project for Foundry Commercial, with two more projects under contract that are slated to begin in the fourth quarter.
Designed by RLC Architects of Boca Raton, both Class-A industrial buildings at Midpoint Miami Logistics Park will feature 32-foot ceilings and 54-foot column width to maximize efficient workflow. Buildings 1 and 2, with a total of 124 dock doors, will share an 180-foot truck court. The project team includes Miami engineering firms Puga & Associates International (MEP), DDA Engineers (structural), and Langan Engineering (civil). Leasing is by Avison Young Global’s Miami office.
