Scannell Properties LLC proposes a third Northeast Florida industrial park on a 111-acre site in St. Johns County.

St. Johns County is reviewing an application for Scannell to develop a five-building, 878,000-square-foot industrial park at 95 County Road 210 W. in Beachwalk.

Kimley-Horn and Associates is the civil engineer.

The Beachwalk North Parcel concept plan shows buildings of 279,300 square feet; 273,000 square feet; 182,000 square feet; and two 72,000 square feet each.

The site is within the Twin Creeks Planned Unit Development.

Indianapolis-based Scannell listed its regional Dallas office.

It would be Scannell’s third Northeast Florida project.

The first is Freebird Commerce Center at 13225 Vantage Way, comprising the 156,000-square-foot Building One and 117,750-square-foot Building Two in North Jacksonville.

The city issued a permit Aug. 6 for Lowe’s Companies Inc. to build-out an almost 104,000-square-foot distribution center in Building One.

The site is at southwest Duval and Airport roads, west of Interstate 95, not far from Jacksonville International Airport.

The second is Southbound Distribution Center, the 85,000-square-foot speculative warehouse at 2700 Powers Ave., east of St. Augustine Road and west of Philips Highway in South Jacksonville.

Cushman & Wakefield Senior Directors Jacob Horsley and Tyler Newman and Senior Associate Taylor Calfee represent Southbound. Horsley and Newman also are the brokers for Freebird Commerce Center.

The Cushman & Wakefield brochure says Southbound will be delivered in the third quarter. Scannell Development Manager Ian MacDonald said previously the speculative building targets tenants needing from 10,000 to 40,000 square feet of space. 

MacDonald could not be reached immediately for comment March 22.
