A new 277,760-square-foot NorthPoint Industrial Park building landed two tenants.

The city is reviewing permits for 1A Auto, which JaxPort announced Dec. 7, and for SCP Pool Supply, part of SCP Distributors LLC.

The structure was built this year at 12090 New Berlin Road in the North Jacksonville business park.

For 1A Auto, Dana B. Kenyon Co. is the contractor for a $1 million tenant build-out for 86,800 square feet of space, a pending permit shows.

For SCP Pool Supply, a pending permit shows a $400,000 office build-out of 3,120 square feet within the 138,880 square feet it will lease.

Pattillo Industrial Real Estate, which owns the 360-acre park and the building, reports the structure will have 52,000 square feet of remaining space available.

Pattillo Vice President Peter Anderson said he has a couple of prospects for that space.

On Dec. 7, the Jacksonville Port Authority announced that 1A Auto, an online-only aftermarket auto parts retailer, chose Jacksonville for its Southeast U.S. distribution operations.

It said the Massachusetts-based company will open the 86,800-square-foot warehouse, which is near JaxPort’s Blount Island Marine Terminal, in the first quarter of 2021. 

1A Auto will use the facility to same-day ship imported auto accessories and repair parts, including headlights, mirrors, brake kits, and shocks and struts from Asia for e-commerce distribution throughout the Southeast U.S., the port said.

1A Auto said the operation initially will create 30 jobs and hopes to grow to 100 jobs within the first couple of years.

SCP Pool Supply, part of SCP Distributors LLC, will relocate from 4601 Bulls Bay Highway in West Jacksonville.

“We are honored that they selected our development for their new distribution center,” Anderson said.

SCP Pool Supply is part of Pool Corp., a wholesale distributor of swimming pool supplies, equipment and related products based in Covington, Louisiana. 

The company has not responded to a request for comment.

Its website says SCP Distributors LLC has more than 2,000 employees, 203 of the more than 350 Pool Corp. sales centers and 120,000 wholesale customers worldwide.
