Patsalos and Bibr represented Mar Company Distributors in the deal. Matt Maciag, Audley Bosch and Brian Smith with JLL represented the landlord, Oria’s Enterprises.
Transwestern Commercial Services’ South Florida industrial team represented SPR Global Storage & Logistics (SPR) in a new, long-term lease for an ±80,000-square-foot cold storage facility at the Beacon at 97th Avenue industrial park in Doral at 2000 NW 97th Ave.
At its core, South Florida is a narrow strip of land between the ocean and the Everglades. Those geographic constraints keep land prices rising, a phenomenon that is especially noticeable in the industrial sector, where rental rates are setting new records.
Miami’s average industrial asking rents reached an all-time high, $9 per SF, in Q4, according to CBRE, jumping nearly 50% in five years. JLL Managing Director Brian Smith said they have since inched even higher, with rates today around $10.25 per SF.
