McCraney introduces new industrial park concept west of Orlando airport

McCraney Property Company is eyeing some 70 acres of timberland directly west of Orlando International Airport for a new industrial park dubbed Cone Land.

According to a Preliminary Review Plan filed with Orange County last week, the West Palm Beach-based developer is looking to build a 977,400-square-foot industrial park just off the southwest corner of  S. Orange Avenue and W. Taft Vineland Road.


The site, owned by heirs of the late Betty S. Cone, sat undeveloped for more than 40 years.

Deidre Krause, a spokeswoman for McCraney, said the developer is actively focusing on securing the land with Jones Lang LaSalle representing the seller.


Jupiter-based Smiley & Associates applied on behalf of McCraney, and C4 Architecture was listed as the architect.

The conceptual site plan shows Cone Land would consist of five industrial buildings, with the largest spanning 572,200 square feet.

Two buildings consisting of 95,400 square feet and one 102,400-square-foot warehouse would front Taft Vineland Road, while the remaining 112,000-square-foot building would sit adjacent to a railway.

Two man-made ponds that are not currently on the property are also featured in the site plan.

McCraney is an industrial real estate investment firm focused on the acquisition, development and management of properties throughout Florida.

The company recently partnered with Tavistock Development Company on its 1.2 million-square-foot distribution center within its 206-acre Infinity Park development near Orlando's tourism corridor.

McCraney is also behind the 700,000-square-foot Bent Oak Industrial Park, which was built in speculation along Taft Vineland Road near the Beachline Expressway-Florida Turnpike interchange. Krause said that property is fully leased.
