Codina Partners, USAA Real Estate Host Caravan Broker Event At Beacon Logistics Park
“In a COVID-19 era, we are having to adjust our approach to broker events and the popularity of caravans made it a great solution for us,” said Ana-Marie Codina Barlick, CEO of Codina Partners. “Our goal was to showcase Beacon Logistics Parks to the broker community while following social distancing and safety guidelines.”
More than 50 brokers attended the event that took place on Tuesday, June 16, providing a drive-through experience through the industrial park.
The caravan broker event started with brokers being welcomed into the property with personal protective equipment (PPE) giveaways (two KN95 masks and a 16 ounce bottle of hand sanitizers), followed by another stop prior to Building F where they received to-go brunch from Bachour Restaurant and Bakery in Coral Gables. The brokers then made their way into the 147,768-square foot Building F to hear more information about the property from Ana- Marie Codina Barlick, CEO, Codina Partners; Alexander Gomez, VP of Industrial Development, Codina Partners; and Jose Juncadella, Fairchild Partners. At the end of the event, each broker received a $25 gift card for local restaurants.
“Industrial properties lend themselves to caravan events like this one because brokers are able to interact and focus more on the product. This is a safe approach now and one that will continue to work after,” added Codina Barlick
Most recently, Codina Partners and USAA Real Estate announced the leasing of 70,000 square feet in Building E to Cargill, the largest privately-held corporation in the United States by revenue.
The industrial park was designed by RLC Architects and is being built by Rycon Construction, Inc.
Once completed, Beacon Logistics Park, located at NW 145th Place and NW 107th Avenue, will span more than 1.3 million square feet of space, giving tenants the flexibility to expand. The Class A distribution and logistics center is within FTZ 281 and is ready to accommodate tenants’ foreign trade zone needs. The master-planned industrial development, managed by the seasoned team of professionals at Codina Partners, is located within proximity to Okeechobee Rd. (US 27), the Florida Turnpike, the Palmetto Expressway and I-75, providing easy access to all of Miami-Dade County and Broward County.
