A local developer broke ground last week on 60,000 square feet of light industrial space less than a mile from the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport that will
significantly expand an industrial park previously known as Biotech Campus.
7201 15th St LLC—a partnership entity that includes Cary Hicks, Ken Pierce and Mark Levey—is building three 20,000-square-foot warehouse buildings at 7201 15th St E in Sarasota. The project expands the industrial park, which includes an existing 18,800-square-foot office building and 12,500-square-foot warehouse. The industrial park will be renamed SRQ Distribution Campus. Melissa Harris and Steve Horn of Ian Black Real Estate will manage leasing of the vacant office building and new warehouse development. The existing warehouse is currently leased to a longterm tenant.
Of the warehouses under construction, Building One will include 400 square feet of office space and 19,600 square feet of warehouse space, while Buildings Two and Three will each include 800 square feet of office space and 19,200 square feet of warehouse space. In addition to truck-wells and tilt-wall construction, the new Class A warehouses will feature 26-foot clear height. The three warehouses under construction are expected to be completed in late October 2022. R.E. Crawford Construction is the general contractor, Cavoli Engineering is the civil engineer and CA3 is the architect for the development project.
