Florida landowners Lykes Brothers and A. Duda & Sons will build a 30
million-square-foot master-planned logistics center on 4,700 acres in
central southern Florida, tapping Cushman & Wakefield to begin
marketing on the site. The center, which is located in Moore Haven, is
aimed at taking advantage of expanded industrial growth in Florida due
to the expansion of the Panama Canal. “While there are other logistics
projects moving forward in Florida, we chose to work on this one because
it has so much going for it,” said James Underhill, CEO-Americas for
Cushman & Wakefield. “It is positioned to be a major facilitator of
not only goods coming into the U.S. through Florida’s ports, but also a
key component in serving the rising demand for U.S. and Florida exports
to Latin America and Asia.” — Alexander
