Lee & Associates Brokers 103,356 SF First Industrial Lease to BGI Group, Inc, (dba US Cabinet Depot) at New Construction, Class A Industrial Facility in Coconut Creek, FL
MIAMI, Florida—September 1, 2020—Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services announces the lease of approximately 103,356 SF of Class A Industrial space within First Industrial Realty Trust’s First Sawgrass Commerce Center located at 6301 Lyons Road, Coconut Creek, FL 33073.
The new construction, freestanding warehouse space in Coconut Creek was secured by tenant BGI Group, Inc (dba US Cabinet Depot) for a long-term lease with an impressive tenant improvement package that included turnkey office and showroom space, LED lights throughout and dock packages for all the dock height loading doors. The building itself features 18 dock height loading doors, 32 foot clear ceiling height, and ESFR sprinklers. The property is in an excellent centralized location close to the Sawgrass Expressway which gives access to Florida’s Turnpike and South Florida’s intricate highway system to better serve the entire Southeast Florida market and reach all South Florida’s major cargo ports.
“It was an honor to work with our Ontario CA office and John Seoane on such a significant assignment, and a privilege to witness the inspired leadership of US Cabinet Depot as they nimbly navigated several challenges, and continue on their track to become the largest distributor of Cabinets in the US with the opening of this premier South Florida hub,” shared Matthew Rotolante, SIOR, CCIM and President of the Lee & Associates South Florida office who along with Vice President, Conner Milford collaborated with Lee & Associates Ontario California office Senior Vice President and Principal, John Seoane, SIOR, to represent the tenant, BGI Group, Inc (dba US Cabinet Depot) to secure the space for their new Southeast distribution center.
US Cabinet Depot is headquartered near Atlanta, Georgia, and was established in 2012 selling their cabinetry to both dealers and the public across the country and in Canada. Securing an operations arm in South Florida was essential to the company’s expansion efforts including several new facilities having opened in other markets through Lee & Associates’ representation. The latest South Florida installment will enable the company to more easily service the Southeastern United States and allow for their local dealers to pick up directly at the warehouse, as well as to leverage South Florida’s strong global trade connections with the Latin Americas, the Caribbean and other key international import/export trade markets.
The successful lease negotiation by Lee & Associates for several US Cabinet Depot facilities across the nation is a true testament to the strength of the cross-market collaboration that is built into the firm’s national platform. Collaborating with precision market insight between local markets is one of the core fundamental characteristics of the Lee brand rooted deeply into the company culture established over 40 years ago by Lee & Associates founder, Bill Lee, in 1979.
“Our culture is the distinguishing factor in how we provide a cohesive set of client services throughout the company at the highest level in the industry,” said Jeff Rinkov, CEO of Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services.
