Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from building themselves a new headquarters.

A postal workers’ union once based in Miami’s Design District just bought the development site for its future headquarters in Miramar for $6.8 million, property records show.

Tropical Letter Carriers Holding Corp. paid $595,616 per acre for the 11.5-acre site on the northeast corner of Flamingo Road and Southwest 43rd Place.

The Ansin Group, led by Sunbeam Television billionaire and developer Edmund Ansin, sold the lot. Ansin sold a nearby 47-acre site for $13 million last year to South Florida developer Charles Scardina Jr.

NAI Miami’s Jeremy Larkin and Joseph Gallaher represented Tropical Letter Carriers in the deal. The union plans to build two buildings on the site – one 8,000-square-foot administrative building and a multi-purpose 12,000-square-foot building for banquet halls and meeting space, according to Larkin.

“The number of [union] members they represented perpetually shifted north,” Larkin said adding that Tropical Letter Carriers wanted to relocate somewhere more “centrally located” to serve union members.

The site plan was approved by the city of Miramar in July. It will be designed by Modis Architects and Sharp Development Company is the project manager.

Tropical Letter Carriers is currently operating out of an office building in Miami Lakes. Larkin and Gallaher arranged a three-year lease for the space after the union sold its South Florida headquarters in the Design District for $43.2 million.

The union plans to break ground on the project in the first quarter of 2018. The remaining 6 acres could be used for a future expansion or a multi-use building the union could lease, Larkin said.
