McCraney plans 3rd industrial building

McCraney Property Co. has announced plans to construct its third industrial building on speculation for the Orlando market.

The Orlando-based company has contracted to purchase a 39-acre industrial development site fronting Taft-Vineland Road in Orlando. The sale is expected to close by the end of the year, with construction planned to start by the second quarter, said Wilson McDowell, part of the Colliers International team that is marketing the project.

Bent Oak Industrial Park, as it’s called, is expected to include 700,000 square feet of warehouse and distribution space.

“We saw a lot of the medical users over the last year or two, and now we’re seeing a lot of organic growth with existing companies expanding,” McDowell said. Most of the growth comes from companies servicing the tourism and residential-construction sectors.

McCraney also is developing 243,000 square feet of speculative industrial space at John Young Business Park, Orlando. Last spring, McCraney completed one of the only build-to-suit projects in the Orlando market since 2008 — the 150,000-square-foot Dade Paper distribution center in the John Young Business Park, Orlando.

In addition, EastGroup Properties is developing a spec industrial building with about 109,000 square feet at Horizon Commerce Park in southeast Orlando, McDowell said.
