42-acre business park in Fort Myers comes in response to growth
As it puts the finishing touches on its 23-acre SouthLinks business park in Bonita Springs, McGarvey Development Co. is turning its attention to a new project that will be the company’s largest in its 30-year history.
The CenterLinks Business Park at Three Oaks, on 42 acres at Oriole Road near Alico Road and west of Interstate 75, in Fort Myers, will contain 600,000 square feet of industrial, flex and general or medical office space when built out.
McGarvey expects to break ground on CenterLinks next month, says company marketing and sales director Jeff McGarvey.
“After two-and-a-half years of developing, we are approaching 100% build out and leasing of our Southlinks project in Bonita Springs,” McGarvey says of the 250,000 square feet of industrial and flex space constructed there.
“Now we will turn our attention to the Alico Road and Three Oaks Parkway corridor, another hotbed of economic development in Lee County,” he adds.
McGarvey has retained LandQwest Commercial Real Estate Services’ Managing Director Adam Palmer and Senior Associate Mike Doyle to market and lease the new CenterLinks space.
The company believes CenterLinks’ central location and proximity to amenities will differentiate it from competition.
“The proximity to CenterLinks in relation to our region’s international airport, major roadways and universities will undoubtedly attract a diverse audience of tenants,” McGarvey says.
“With multiple corporate headquarters and other developments coming out of the ground in this corridor, CenterLinks will offer a convenient logistical advantage for businesses to grow in the Southwest Florida market,” McGarvey adds.
CenterLinks will feature tilt-wall construction and hurricane-rated windows, together with energy-efficient LED lighting throughout. The project’s exterior will be similar in appearance to that of Southlinks, McGarvey says.
