The recently completed two-building industrial park is now fully leased, according to the owner’s broker.

Chris Metzger and Rick Etner Jr. were part of the Cushman & Wakefield team that secured the leases on behalf of Tamarac Industrial Venture. The entity is a joint venture between Coconut Creek-based Butters Construction and Development and an institutional capital partner.

Medify Air moved into a roughly 115,115-square-foot space in an expansion from its existing Deerfield Beach location. Bob Schneiderman of Colliers represented Medify Air in the lease.

Denver-based Wheel Pros will move into roughly 40,171 square feet of warehouse and distribution space in the first quarter of 2022. The company designs, markets and distributes branded aftermarket wheels, and also distributes performance tires and accessories, according to a release. Reid Bassinger of Lee & Associates represented Wheel Pros in the lease.

The Lotus Group is moving its headquarters to a bigger, 25,020-square-foot space at Tamarac Business Center starting in the first quarter of 2022. The space also will be a warehouse and distribution facility for Lotus. Founded in 1991, Lotus offers lighters, cigar cutters, gift sets, humidors, cigar cases, ashtrays, humidification accessories and butane gas. It was self-represented in the lease deal.

The three companies’ leases are for the Tamarac Business building at 6801 North Hiatus Road. The 180,306-square-foot property was completed this year with 32-foot clearing heights, LED lights, 44 dock-high doors, two ramps, and a 54-foot by 42.5-foot column spacing, according to the release.

The second building, at 6901 North Hiatus Road, was leased to an e-commerce tenant this year. The Cushman & Wakefield team closed that deal as well.

The deals speak to the strength of the South Florida industrial market, with soaring rents amid high demand.

Best Buy Stores leased the Seagis Dania Beach Cottage office-industrial property.

The 1.9-acre property at 2765 Southwest 36th Street has a 7,737-square-foot building, which breaks down to a 1,737-square-foot office and a 6,000-square-foot warehouse, according to the landlord’s broker. The warehouse is fully air-conditioned with three grade-level drive-in doors. The site has a large parking lot with storage.

Best Buy Stores plans to use the property for storage and vehicle parking.

Jonathan Thiel and Keith Graves of Berger Commercial Realty/Corfac International represented Seagis Property Group’s affiliate that owns the real estate. Will Falero and Jeremy Scheck of Colliers represented the tenant.

Seagis, based in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, has been betting on South Florida industrial properties, underscoring the market’s continued growth amid high demand and low supply.

In October, Seagis paid $8 million for a Miami Gardens warehouse. This came on the heels of the company buying a logistic company’s Doral facility for $19.4 million in September.

Records show Seagis bought the Dania Beach industrial-office property for $2.8 million in August.
