Dade Paper & Bag will occupy 70,424 square feet at Flagler Station II in a sublease from PriceSmart.
In February 2017, Transwestern’s South Florida Industrial Team announced that PriceSmart Inc., the largest operator of membership warehouse clubs in Central America and the Caribbean, acquired a new 330,000-square-foot distribution center. Flagler Global Logistics built the Class A facility in Flagler Station Phase III located at 11441 NW 107th St. in Medley.
If you’ve never darkened the doorway of a train manufacturing plant, it’s understandable to at first mistake Medley’s Hitachi facility for a contemporary art museum and the first three of 136 Metrorail cars being assembled there now to replace Miami-Dade’s fleet as a unique exhibit.
Everything in the airy 140,400-square-foot plant is spotless, from an elevated ceiling latticed with steel to a glossy concrete floor. It’s quiet; the three cars in production seem artistically placed; and stairways leading to concrete pits, train tracks across the building and a north-to-south rolling platform to transfer cars out of the building onto a platform are equally pleasing to the eye.
