Developer plans region's 2nd Sunbelt Rentals construction equipment store

Charlotte-based developer MPV Properties is preparing a site in Ocoee facing S.R. 429 for Greater Orlando's second store by construction equipment supplier Sunbelt Rentals. 

Located at 501 Enterprise St., the 27.86-acre vacant industrial parcel boasts frontage on Maguire Road and the highway, just south of those thoroughfares' intersection with Franklin Street. 

The proposed Sunbelt Rentals would have a 12,161-square-foot retail building and a 14,408-square-foot service and maintenance shop. 

Another 149,000 square feet of outdoor storage area would hold rental equipment, a 5.6-acre stormwater pond would be established on the western side, and an additional 5.7-acre leasable tract for future development would be preserved. 

MPV has worked with Sunbelt Rentals on multiple built-to-suit projects and land lease deals across the southeast, and paid $2.47 million for the Ocoee property in late May. 

Executives with the developer did not respond to requests for comment on Wednesday. 

Sunbelt Rentals is considered the second largest equipment rental company in the United States, with more than 500 stores in the U.S. and Canada and $1.3 billion in annual revenue. The company currently has one store in Orlando, on S. Orange Blossom Trail.

The developer is offering to dedicate land for a future right-of-way extension of a road from Ocoee Business Park on the northern side to L.F. Roper Parkway. 

The project will be accessed from Maguire Road, with a left turn and right turn deceleration lane being constructed by the applicant. 

Ocoee's Planning and Zoning Board voted to approve the project's Development Plan on July 11. It should go before the City Commission in early August. 

Service providers on the project include Appian Engineering as civil engineer, Bio-Tech Consulting for environmental, and Johnson Cartwright Jarman Architects out of Tampa.
