FORT MYERS, Fla. (Jan. 25, 2019) – On the heels of the completion of Meridian Center North, a 200,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility located on 15 acres at 10400 Meridian Center Parkway in Fort Myers, Morris-Depew Associates has secured permits for phase two. Known as Meridian Center South, the light-industrial warehouse will have approximately 160,000 square feet.
“We’re excited about these two new buildings as they’ve been engineered to satisfy the real estate need for businesses involved in manufacturing, distribution and e-commerce, which is growing substantially each day with the continued growth of online shopping,” said Ryan Shute, partner and civil engineering senior manager for Morris-Depew Associates.
Developed by Knott Realty, the buildings will be equipped with 32-foot ceilings, multiple drive-in and loading dock doors and parking accommodations for more than 350 vehicles.
Morris-Depew Associates worked closely with Knott Realty to provide civil engineering, land planning, site design, landscape architecture and land surveying and mapping services.
As part of the land planning work, parcels on the property were rezoned from agricultural to mixed use planned development. Additional rezoning efforts were coordinated for other parcels of the property to support additional space for future industrial use.
The team also provided infrastructure zoning and permitting services to ensure approved commercial usage as well as constructing staking and platting to ensure site dimensions and correct positioning for the new structures on the property.
