Duke Realty Breaks Ground on First Building of Pembroke Pines Office Park
- Mar 31, 2015
Construction works have recently started on a new four-story office building in Pembroke Pines, Duke Realty Corp.’s South Florida office announced.
Duke Realty entered the South Florida market in 1999 and has developed more than 1 million square feet of suburban office properties since then. The company’s South Florida portfolio currently includes 1.3 million square feet of suburban office space and 4.9 million square feet of industrial properties, according to a press release. Duke Realty also owns, maintains an interest in or has under development, approximately 153.2 million rentable square feet of industrial and office assets, including medical office, in 22 major metropolitan areas across the nation.
The 143,535-square-foot, Class A asset is the first of a four-building portfolio and it is located on a 36-acre site at Interstate 75 and Pines Blvd., known as Pembroke Pointe. The office park is being developed on a speculative basis, and it will be accessible via SW 145th Avenue which connects with Pines Boulevard, an exit directly off I-75. The master plan will also have pedestrian and automobile connectivity to Shops at Pembroke Gardens, the neighboring retail center.
The developers seek LEED Silver certification for the first building. Built from structural steel, tilt-wall concrete panels and glass, the structure is being constructed on 36,290-square-foot floor plates in order to allow maximum flexibility in space planning. Surface parking around the building will provide 4.2 spaces per 1,000 rentable square feet.
