A Mississippi-based developer this fall expects to finish construction of the first phase of a business park in Miami Gardens on land purchased from Calder Casino and Race Course.

Jackson, Miss.-based EastGroup Properties paid $27 million to buy the 61-acre development site from Calder in 2016.

Miller Construction Co. has started building a 200,372-square-foot warehouse on the site at 21001 Northwest 27 Street.

Tampa-based architecture firm Horton, Harley & Carter designed the warehouse, which is the $6.9 million first phase of a business park development called Gateway Commerce Park.

EastGroup has approval for 850,000 square feet of industrial real estate development at the site on the west side of Florida’s Turnpike near Hard Rock Stadium.

Publicly held EastGroup retained brokerage firm JLL as the leasing agent for its planned business park. [South Florida Business Journal] Mike Seemuth
