More industrial space is headed for south Orange County.
Cintas Corporation, a recent newcomer to the Fortune 500 list, just filed plans with South Florida Water Management District seeking to build one of its uniform processing plants at 2510 Investors Row.
The vacant 8.68 acres would be developed into a 55,000-square-foot warehouse with office space and 210 parking spots that can accommodate trucks, according to the application.
The facility would serve as Cintas' second existing processing plant in the greater Orlando market, in addition to its roughly 32,000-square-foot campus completed in 1990 and located just south of Orlando's Richmond Estates neighborhood.
An entity tied to Cintas paid $2.95 million for the site in 2007. Cintas' construction engineer Frank Floyd said he hopes to put shovels in the ground within the next year and a half.
The proposed project is apart of the Orlando Central Park Phase 10 Preliminary Subdivision Plan permitted in 1984. It sits just south of the State Road 528 intersection with US 441 and Florida's Turnpike.
The processing facility joins a wave of newly proposed industrial projects near the Florida Mall.
Earlier this month McCraney Property Company submitted a Preliminary Review Plan with Orange County looking to build a 977,400-square-foot industrial park just off the southwest corner of S. Orange Avenue and W. Taft Vineland Road.
Cintas is headquartered in Cincinnati and provides uniforms, floor care, restroom supplies, first aid and safety products, fire extinguishers and safety and compliance training for business across the nation.
Last year, the public company made the Fortune 500 list with $5.4 billion in revenue and $6.8 billion in assets.
