Seagate Development Group says it starting work on a new 40 acre business park in Fort Myers. Alico Trade Center as the name for a 40-acre business park coming to Alico Road and I-75 in Fort Myers.
Seagate owns and will develop this commercial land. Lee & Associates is handling design-build leasing and sales of the pad sites for the Alico Trade Centre at Alico Road and I-75, the developer says in a statement.
“Lee & Associates presented us with this exciting opportunity – a testament to our working relationship,” said Matt Price, CEO and partner at Seagate Development Group. “We look forward to not only creating an efficient, zero-hassle, multi-tenant environment for region-based businesses, but in a central location that will change the landscape of Southwest Florida and demonstrate second-to-none design-build processes at the very same time.”
Seagate says it is preparing to break ground on Rice Insulation & Glass’ 35,000-sq. ft. structure in the business park. It will include offices, a reception area, a conference room, training and break rooms, workstations, a warehouse of insulation, glass, shower door and shelving materials, high-dock and grade-level doors, and 100 parking spaces.
Seagate and Lee & Associates are also working with other to-be-announced businesses that would like to lease or purchase single-tenant, flex or industrial buildings in Alico Trade Center, the statement says.
“Seagate has one of the best design-build operations in their industry,” said Derek Bornhorst, principal at Lee & Associates. “They understand the hot buttons of corporate end users, and we look for this 40-acre tract to be a solution for some of the pent-up demand in Naples and Fort Myers.”
The first freestanding building in Alico Trade Center is slated for completion in October, with all other owners’ and tenants’ projects to be completed on an ongoing basis.
