Berger Commercial Realty was awarded the leasing assignment for Bergeron Family of Companies’ new Bergeron Distribution Center in Pembroke Pines.
Senior Vice President Keith Graves and Broker Associate Greg Milopoulos will serve as the exclusive leasing agents for the 170,373-square-foot, class-A distribution warehouse, which is scheduled for completion by the end of the second quarter of 2017.
“There is only so much industrial space available in Broward County,” Milopoulos said. “The Bergerons understand the need to jump ahead of the competition by building this facility on spec. When completed, the Bergeron Distribution Center will offer unparalleled commercial real estate opportunities as it can accommodate a spectrum of tenant needs including size, function, accessibility and more.”
The new development is situated on 9.1 acres at the southwest corner of Stirling Road and S.W. 196th Avenue within the existingBergeron Park of Commerce and Industry, a 300-acre, $137 million industrial park and development site. The Bergeron Park of Commerce and Industry offers convenient access to I-75, US-27, I-595 and Florida’s Turnpike, providing connectivity to South Florida’s major cities, airports, railways and seaports as well as Florida’s west coast. The Park will total approximately 2.2 million square-feet when fully built out.
Units at the Bergeron Distribution Center will start at 21,950 square-feet. The facility will feature 32-foot clear-height ceilings, clearstory windows, ample parking, a truck court, dock and ramp loading, and onsite trailer storage. The facility will consist of up to 15 percent office space.
Built-to-suit options, ranging in size from two to 60 acres within the Bergeron Park of Commerce and Industry, are also available.
“The Park’s zoning of Light Industrial (M-1), General Industrial (M-3), and Limited Heavy Industrial (M-4) caters to a broad range of businesses,” Graves said. “The Park’s slogan, ‘For All Industries,’ points directly to the diversity of zoning that lies at the heart of the Park’s appeal to businesses of all kinds.”
The Bergeron Park of Commerce and Industry was originally conceived by Bergeron Family of Companies CEO ‘Alligator’ Ron Bergeron, Sr. more than 30 years ago. The Park has been maintained and expanded upon by Bergeron Family of Companies Executive Vice President Lonnie Bergeron and Bergeron Properties and Investment Corporation Vice President Frank Saia.
“Bergeron has a strong track record of development and this site definitely taps into the strengths of its home-grown roots,” Graves said. “As one of South Florida’s premier property owners and developers, they understand the importance of working with a brokerage firm that truly understands South Florida’s commercial real estate market, and we feel honored that they selected us to represent them on this important project.”
