The $482,000 project is within an almost 500,000-square-foot warehouse.
The city issued a permit Sept. 10 for a $482,611 improvement in a new warehouse at Westlake TradeCenter within the Westlake Industrial Park.
The improvements are for office space in one unit of the 486,146-square-foot building at 9950 Pritchard Road in West Jacksonville.
It is north of the BJ’s Wholesale Club distribution center.
The Pritchard Road building can accommodate several tenants.
Plans show that Tenant Contractors Inc. is the contractor for the improvement. Plans show about 3,700 square feet of office space within a 204,611-square-foot warehouse unit.
“The landlord is building out spec office space to reduce the amount of time a tenant needs to occupy a building,” said Tyler Newman, managing director of Cushman & Wakefield.
“It typically takes at least 90 days to complete improvements and having the office in place will make the building more attractive for prospects. We do have good activity on the building but no commitments at this time,” Newman said.
Pattillo Industrial Real Estate developed the cross-dock building in 2020 on about 30 acres.
The Conlan Co. was the contractor.
Westlake TradeCenter is designed to comprise three buildings. The spec structure is its first.
Pattillo affiliate Stone Mountain Industrial Park Inc., through Westlake Land LLC, bought 96.3 acres at Pritchard and Directors roads from Denver-based Prologis Inc. in 2016 for about $7.2 million and registered Westlake TradeCenter as a fictitious name with the state.
Peter Anderson, vice president of Pattillo Industrial Real Estate, said previously that Pattillo can develop up to 1.4 million square feet of space on the property.
He said it would start with a 487,000-square-foot cross-dock facility designed for up to two tenants.
Pattillo also owns Westside Industrial Park and NorthPoint Industrial Park.
