Tampa, Florida (March 31, 2021)Land Advisors Organization’s Tampa Bay office is pleased to announce the sale of an approximately 12-acre vacant parcel of land located in the Gateway Centre Business Park in Pinellas Park, FL to Orlando-based Tavistock Development Company. The property is located on Gateway Centre Parkway and MCI Drive and sold for $2,825,000.

Nancy Surak, senior land advisor and managing broker for Land Advisors Organization Tampa Bay arranged the sale on behalf of the landowner, Huntley Properties, LLC. Tavistock will develop the property and recently began construction on a 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility for a leading e-commerce company.

“We are seeing more interest in industrial land sales and development in the area to accommodate the community’s growing needs,” said Nancy Surak. “Not only will this new project create 200+ much-needed, full-time jobs in Pinellas Park and activate other vacant land in the area, the facility’s location will provide area residents with the advantage of receiving online orders even faster – it’s very exciting to be part of this project!”

Gateway is highly accessible to regional transportation assets including the St. Petersburg/Clearwater and Tampa International Airports, three seaports, four major bridges, and six major roadways. With its ideal location, businesses in the area have access to a large and talented workforce population of over 169,000 employees within a 5-mile radius of the Gateway Centre Business Park. In addition, nearly 1.5 million Tampa Bay residents can access this area driving 30 minutes or less.

“The City of Pinellas Park is thrilled about this project creating hundreds of good-paying jobs for our community. This will have a major ripple effect on the local and Pinellas County area economy,” said Benjamin Ziskal, city of Pinellas Park community development administrator.

“Tavistock Development Company is excited to develop this cutting-edge logistics facility in Gateway Centre,” said Skipper Peek, Tavistock Development Company senior vice president. “The City of Pinellas Park has been great to work at every step and we are most grateful for their continuing role in helping us achieve the project’s fast-paced schedule.”
