Walmart Moving Forward With Massive Distribution Center In Brevard

Sep 07, 2016 No Comments by

Walmart is moving forward with plans to build a huge distribution center in Brevard County — a deal that will bring big construction and job opportunities to the region.

The retail giant on Sept. 6 applied for a permit to begin a 146-acre project in Cocoa. Plans showed one main facility will have storage for freezer items, dairy, deli, cold produce, meat and dry produce. There also will be a dock for receiving and shipping, and smaller surrounding facilities for fuel, a guard house, a truck maintenance garage and more. The project in total encompasses 592,830 square feet and 943 parking space, documents showed.

If granted the permit, Walmart could begin site work and move forward with contractor, subcontractor, vendor opportunities and more.

Land slated for development is west of State Road 524 and is owned by the Canaveral Port Authority. The property collectively is valued at more than $2 million.

Walmart East Stores LP, an entity of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., is the owner/developer of the project.

Walmart is getting $2.92 million in economic incentives from the city of Cocoa to build the new distribution center and create 239 jobs, Florida Today reports.

This is the second massive distribution center Walmart has in the works in Central Florida. The retailer is creating 1,000 jobs at a new 2.2 million-square-foot, e-commerce distribution center in Davenport.
