May 02, 2016 No Comments by

JLL has been selected as the exclusive broker for the Central Florida Intermodal Logistics Center, one of the nation’s Top 10 Inland Ports located at the center of population in the state of Florida.

Adjacent to CSX Winter Haven Intermodal, the 932-acre project is planned for 8 million square feet of industrial development, including the immediate availability of a Class A, high-bay distribution facility totalling 407,400 square feet.

JLL Senior Vice Presidents Joe Hills and Josh Lipoff and Vice Presidents Ryan Burrows and Steve Ostrowski will serve as the exclusive leasing team. They will be joined by Managing Director and Leader of JLL’s Port, Airports and Global Infrastructure Practice, Mark Levy and Managing Director Keith Stauber. The planned intermodal logistics hub will consist of 8 million square feet of industrial and distribution space with build-to-suit space opportunities ranging from 200,000 square feet to 1.8 million square feet. A class A distribution facility totalling 407,400 square feet is already available for leasing.


“As we look at factors such as population growth, demand for faster access to goods and increasing e-commerce, the Central Florida Intermodal Logistics Center will play an integral role in the future of Central Florida as a major hub for getting goods to all major population centers in the state,” said Hills. “Target users include those seeking connectivity to neighboring ports, access to the region’s customer base and build-to-suit space that can meet their long-term logistics needs.”

Given its strategic location and land availability, Central Florida is poised to become the center point for distribution in the state over the next five to 10 years. Providing highway access via I-4, US 27 and SR 60, the Central Florida Intermodal Logistics Center will encompass 932 acres of state-of-the-art industrial development. The project site is adjacent to the CSX Winter Haven Intermodal, an innovative facility that features loading tracks and arrival and departure tracks with the capacity to process 300,000 containers annually and the ability to increase capacity in the future.


“Maritime access, port connectivity and rail access are all critical factors for an intermodal logistics center at a time when half of all retail sales are happening online,” explained Levy. “Companies are increasingly looking to enhance efficiencies related to distribution and being able to access multiple markets from a chief distribution point will be key as they plan ahead.”


“We look forward to working with JLL’s experienced industrial leasing team, which has extensive expertise in inland port projects, to lead our leasing strategy at the Central Florida Intermodal Logistics Center. This project has the potential to become a major economic driver for Central Florida in the years ahead,” said Michael Mullen, senior advisor of Winter Haven Industrial Investors. “We are investing in creating a central logistics hub for Florida that can serve the state’s increasing population and its growing demand for goods and services.”
