West Palm Beach-based McCraney Property Company bought land for a 1.3 million-square-foot industrial development in Plant City, located about 30 miles from Tampa along Interstate 4.

MCraney paid an undisclosed amount for 70 acres and plans to construct four industrial buildings there, including one that would span 876,240 square feet. The sellers of the 70 acres are berry farmer Carl Grooms and his wife, Dee Dee Grooms.

Plant City’s planning and zoning department is reviewing the proposed development, named the County Line Logistics Center at Fancy Farms.

Plant City also is the location of other commercial real estate developments including a 100,000-square-foot building on County Line Road that Central Florida Development (CFD) began constructing in January.

In April, CFD announced plans for another project on County Line Road in Plant City, a 72-acre business park development. [Plant City Observer] — Mike Seemuth
