FORT MYERS, FLA. — Knott Realty Group has purchased 27 acres of land located at 10400 Meridian Center Parkway in Fort Myers with plans to develop an industrial park at the site.

Dubbed Meridian Center, the park will include two speculative buildings totaling 350,000 square feet that are suitable for distribution, warehousing or manufacturing. The property is situated roughly one mile from Southwest Florida International Airport. Knott Realty will initially construct a single-story, 200,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility equipped with 32-foot ceilings, multiple drive-in and loading dock doors and parking accommodations for more than 350 vehicles. The building is slated for completion in summer 2018. Following completion of the first building, the company will begin construction on 150,000 square feet of additional space in a second facility.
