McCraney pursues two new spec warehouses at Bent Oak Industrial Park

Outlined are the sites for new warehouse Buildings 700 (red) and 800 (green) planned by McCraney in its Bent Oak Industrial Park, located at the intersection of Taft Vineland Road and the Florida Turnpike.

UPDATED: May 1, 2017 3:29 PM — West Palm Beach-based developer McCraney Property Company is starting permit applications for the last two undeveloped pads it owns within Bent Oak Industrial Park, which should total nearly 180,000 square feet of spec warehouse space.

The company filed development permit requests on Sunday with the South Florida Water Management District.


A new "Building 700" warehouse would have 101,220 square feet, and sit on the southeast corner of Taft Vineland and Oak Crossings roads, while the new "Building 800" would lie directly east with 77,219 square feet fronting Taft Vineland Road and its intersection with the Florida Turnpike.

Both new warehouses would be directly north of the Building 600 (451,823 SF) that was built last year, and is fully leased.


New buildings 300 (111,390 SF), 400 (194,000 SF) and 500 (131,840 SF) were all completed as new spec construction within the past two months, and are fully vacant with prospective tenants, said Wilson McDowell of Cite Partners, leasing agent for McCraney's buildings.

All the buildings have 30-foot clear heights, with nos. 400 and 500 offering rear-load design, and no. 300 loading from the front. Taft Vineland Road is planned for expansion to four lanes by Orange County.

The future buildings 700 and 800 are part of a second phase of Bent Oak Industrial Park by McCraney that should total 1.3 million square feet once complete.

The industrial park covers more than 100 acres overall, and had 700,000 square feet of warehouse space built in its first phase. The developer paid roughly $9 million in June 2015 for land at the turnpike intersection that was later subdivided for Phase 2.

McCraney had not filed plans with Orange County for the two new buildings, as of Monday. The developer replatted the property in February with the county.

Officials with the company did not respond to requests for comment on Monday.

Smiley & Associates, Inc., out of Jupiter is civil engineer on the plans.
