Gap Forwarding, a freight forwarder currently headquartered in Doral, is moving across town to the new Flagler Station III commercial development.

The company just signed a 32,000-square-foot lease for space at Flagler, where it will set up its new corporate headquarters and distribution center. Freight forwarders are commonly defined as companies that handle the logistics of shipping on behalf of their clients.

Michael Torna of brokerage Corporate Solutions, who represented Gap, said the company had outgrown its Doral space — where it’s spent nearly a decade — and was looking for a new home. He told The Real Deal that Gap’s new lease was “long-term,” but declined to discuss specifics, citing a nondisclosure agreement.

Landlord Flagler Global Logistics was represented in-house for Gap lease by Chris Sutton.

Flagler Station III is the third phase of Flagler Global Logistic’s massive commercial development in northwestern Miami-Dade County. The third phase alone is slated to bring 1.7 million square feet of industrial space to the county, while Flagler Station as a whole is planned to have nearly 14 million square feet.
