Miller Construction Company has begun site work on a 199,643-square-foot warehouse for Seagis Property Group just outside Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades. The building will serve the area’s growing distribution needs with convenient import and export capabilities.
Located at 1700 Eller Drive in Hollywood, the warehouse provides future distribution, logistics and e-commerce tenants statewide reach with access to Florida’s Turnpike, I-95 and I-595. The load bearing, tilt-wall structure is scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2023.
“Florida’s industrial needs continue to grow, and with our client Seagis Property Group, we aim to deliver state-of-the-art industrial space to the market,” said Brian Sudduth, President of Miller Construction. “With supply chain issues still hindering import and export, having the opportunity to support a major South Florida hub like Port Everglades is important for our community.”
The building will be equipped with standard 54-foot by 50-foot bays, a 60-foot speed bay and 36-foot clear-height ceilings. During preconstruction, Miller’s team was brought in to assess the land and recommended the need to increase the bearing capacity of the structure with the use of Controlled Modulus Columns also known as rigid inclusions.
The industrial project will also include two speculative office spaces to be built out at the same time to allow tenants to move in and occupy the space immediately upon completion of the project.
The project team includes Ware Malcomb Architects, Puga & Associates, Inc. (MEP), DDA Engineers (structural) and Langan Engineering (civil).
