South Martin Industrial Park Warehouses - News


Verdex Construction has started work on South Martin Industrial Park, a new warehouse facility at the intersection of SW Kanner Hwy. and Florida’s Turnpike in Martin County, FL.

The project includes nine warehouse buildings totaling 96,207 sq. ft. The site will also include a free-standing consumer self-storage facility. The developer is NNA Kansas West, and the project was designed by Jupiter-based Morel De Guiramond Architecture with planning by Cotleur and Hearing.

“Despite the current challenges of acquiring construction materials, we went to extreme lengths to lock in pricing and inventory to assure the client would meet their budget,” said Verdex President Rex Kirby. “In this environment, it’s imperative to go the extra mile for our clients. This is what we mean when we say we’re ‘Building Something Better’ at Verdex.”

The nine warehouses consist of three tilt-wall and six concrete block buildings with 40 total bays on an 11-acre site. Construction started on June 1 and estimated completion is April 2022.

Verdex Construction’s recent projects throughout South Florida include the Canopy by Hilton West Palm Beach Downtown1000 North, an upscale restaurant/club on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter; and Town Lantana Apartments in Lantana.

In just over five years, Verdex has earned numerous awards and prestigious industry recognition, including being selected as a finalist for 2020 Business of the Year by the South Florida Business Journal, finalist for 2020 Business of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, and being selected as a GrowFL “Company to Watch”.
