Talk about mixing sugar and spice.

Badia Spices bought a warehouse in Sweetwater for $44 million.

The Doral-based spices and herbs manufacturer paid about $141 a square foot for the 313,000-square-foot building at 2200 Northwest 112th Avenue in Dolphin Commerce Park, according to a press release.

It is the largest warehouse sale by both size and price to a user-occupier in South Florida in the past four years, according to Newmark, which brokered the deal.

Newmark’s Steve Medwin and Nick Wigoda represented Badia, according to the release.

Tech Data, a publicly traded IT products and services distributor based in Clearwater, sold the warehouse. The Class A industrial building was completed in 2002 and sits on nearly 16 acres, according to the release.

Tech Data, led by Rich Hume, acquired the building in 2017 as part of a $156 million deal to buy six properties it leased from SunTrust Bank, including its headquarters, according to documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The documents did not break down the value of each building. The other properties were in Texas, California, Georgia, New Jersey and Indiana.

Badia Spices manufactures, packages and distributes spices, seasoning blends, marinades, sauces, teas, health items and other products to more than 70 countries around the world, according to the release. The company is led by Joseph “Pepe” Badia.

In 2018, Badia bought a Doral warehouse for $9.5 million.

In 2017, Pepe Badia paid $12.4 million for a waterfront Coconut Grove estate.

Other industrial deals in South Florida include a company tied to motivational speaker and author Tony Robbins buying a West Palm Beach warehouse for $4.4 million and Blackstone buying eight industrial properties in Miami-Dade County from Elion Partners as part of a $93.5 million South Florida portfolio deal.
