Development continues at Imeson Park South in North Jacksonville with construction of Building 200.

The city issued a permit June 13 for The Conlan Co. of Jacksonville to build the 547,200-square-foot speculative structure at 1511 Zoo Parkway at a cost of almost $25.9 million.

It also is called Building C.

The permit comes less than two weeks after the city issued a permit June 2 for VanTrust Real Estate’s Building 100, also called Building A.

That 202,800-square-foot structure is a build-to-suit for Sub-Zero Group Inc.

Evans General Contractors of Pooler, Georgia, is building it at a cost of $14.5 million.

Sub-Zero, which makes luxury kitchen appliances, now leases about 120,000 square feet of space at 2855 Faye Road and will relocate and expand at Imeson South. SZ Jacksonville Warehouse LLC will own the new facility.

The city continues to review plans for the 1 million-square-foot Building 300, also Building E, at $51.8 million.

Zoo Parkway also is known as Heckscher Drive.

VanTrust Real Estate announced April 19 it broke ground on the three industrial buildings totaling more than 1.75 million square feet of space at Imeson Park South.

VanTrust said then the project comprises a 200,000-square-foot build-to-suit building and two speculative buildings. 

Potential uses include warehouse, distribution center and other industrial uses.

Executive Vice President Marc Munago said June 3 that Building 100 will be ready in February for the tenant to move in.

He said Building 200 would be competed in late April and Building 300 in late July.

Munago said he has had interest in the 547,200-square-foot building.

VanTrust purchased the 196-acre Imeson Park South property in October 2021 for $22.83 million.

The company said the master plan includes up to six buildings that total more than 2.5 million of space.

The property is south of VanTrust’s Imeson Park, a four-building industrial center that is being completed with its last structure.

The 156-acre Imeson Park totals about 2.5 million square feet including a 1 million-square-foot Amazon fulfillment center. 

VanTrust Real Estate LLC bought the Imeson Park property in September 2018 for $18.44 million.
