Construction has started on the last phase of Flagler Station, a massive business park next to Medley in Northwest Miami-Dade County.
Hernandez Construction, an affiliate of Stiles Corp., recently began work on the first two buildings of phase three, which will bring 1.7 million square feet to the park when completed. The first two buildings will have 235,000 square feet of industrial space and are set to be finished in the summer.
Hernandez Construction said plans for phase three also include three other buildings, which the company expects to break ground on in the upcoming months.
The business park, which sits on 900 acres near 10505 Northwest 112th Avenue, is being developed by Flagler Global Logistics. It will have 14 million square feet when completed, making it the largest business park in South Florida. Current tenants include transportation giant Ryder System, Tracfone Wireless, State Farm and Progressive Insurance.
Phase two of the development is also nearing completion. The company started construction of the phase’s five buildings, totaling 820,000 square feet, in 2014.
“Flagler Station is one of the most impressive developments in Miami, and we are very proud to be a part of this landmark project,” said Alex Hernandez, president of Hernandez Construction, in a statement. “Our experience in building state-of-the-art industrial spaces that are both efficient and functional made us a perfect fit for this project. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Flagler Global Logistics while growing our presence in South Florida.” — Sean Stewart-Muniz
