McCraney Breaks Ground On 1 MSF Industrial Development, Selects Marcobay Construction As GC

McCraney Property Company retained Marcobay Construction as the general contractor for Bent Oak Industrial Park Phase II and swiftly began construction. The one-million-square-foot class A industrial spec development project is located on 66-acres at the intersection of Taft Vineland Road and the Florida Turnpike in the Southeast Orange County submarket of Orlando. Construction on Phase II commences less than a year after 703,920 square feet was delivered at Bent Oak Industrial Park Phase I and subsequently 65 percent leased by end of 2015. On the heels of this success, McCraney Property Company and JV Partner Clarion Partners will again partner on one of the area’s largest speculative build-to-suit developments. Within months of announcing the second phase at Bent Oak, Freeman Expositions signed a lease to occupy nearly half of the project in a 451,823 square foot transaction.  

“Marcobay’s expertise in overseeing industrial construction for e-commerce and distribution providers including Amazon and Publix will be instrumental in ensuring quality product and expeditious delivery of Bent Oak Industrial Park Phase II,” said Steven McCraney, President and CEO of McCraney Property Company. “We experienced much of the 2.5 million square feet of positive absorption in Orlando’s industrial market last year at our existing parks, and are confident that our benchmark setting product, which includes increasing the standard clear height up to 36 feet, will again resonate with end-users.”
