Projects include two speculative buildings totaling more than 1.5 million square feet of industrial warehouse and distribution space and a 200,000-square-foot build-to-suit building VanTrust recently broke ground on the development of three industrial buildings at its Imeson Park South property located at 1511 Zoo Parkway, Jacksonville, Florida. VanTrust purchased the 196-acre property in Imeson Park in October 2021 and demand continues to grow for more industrial warehouse and distribution space in Jacksonville. The three projects currently underway include a 200,000 square foot build-to-suit building and two speculative buildings. The speculative buildings consist of a 547,200 square foot building on approximately 33 acres with 36 feet clear height and a 1,003,200 square foot building on approximately 63 acres with 40 feet clear height. Both speculative buildings feature ample auto, dock and trailer parking. Construction on all three buildings is expected to be complete by Q1 and Q2 2023. “The continued momentum at Imeson Park South for more distribution facility capacity underscores Jacksonville’s rapid growth in the industrial and e-commerce sectors,” said Marc Munago, Executive Vice President at VanTrust. “Imeson Park South offers ease-of-access to the airport, major highways and JAXPORT, making it a prime location for major U.S. manufacturers and distributors. This is only the beginning of our vision for Imeson Park.” The development of these facilities is part of a wider master site plan at VanTrust’s Imeson Park South property. The company plans to develop up to six buildings that total over two-and-a-half million square feet of space for warehouse, distribution and other industrial use.
