Logistics company Kerry Freight (USA) just inked a 34,590-square-foot lease at Miami International Tradeport, a 1.7 million industrial park in Medley under development by Liberty Property Limited Partnership.
More industrial space is planned for Doral.
Foundry Commercial and Oakwood Real Estate Partners will add two new buildings to the Miami Free Zone, which they plan to rename Miami Central Commons.
Doral is still officially a young city, incorporated only 15 years ago.
But Doral’s roots date back to the 1950s, when Doris and Alfred Kaskel scooped up 2,400 acres of swampland for $49,000 on which they built a grand hotel, country club and golf resort nearly a decade later. The Kaskels, apartment developers from New York City who also built a pair of Art Deco hotels in Miami Beach, named their new resort after themselves — and Doral was born.
