Situated on 126 acres between NW 80th and NW 90th Street on NW 87th Avenue in Medley, First Park Miami will be one of the largest Class A Industrial Parks in South Florida upon completion. It will be comprised of up to 2.5 million square feet of logistics space spread over as many as 13 buildings. Phase I will include three buildings, totaling 600,000 SF, featuring 32’‐36′ clear heights, 120’ to 180’ truck courts, extensive dock‐high loading, and an ESFR sprinkler system.
The site provides easy access to South Florida’s major highway network. First Park Miami will serve all businesses looking to upgrade and modernize their operations in a rare infill location.
A Q3 2021 delivery is expected for Phase I.

The project is wholly owned by First Industrial Realty Trust, which has tapped CBRE’s Devin White, David Albert and Andrew Fernandez to lease the project.
