“In light of COVID, people are still buying products and we’re seeing companies expand” to meet the demand, Ramoski said. 

About 20 miles south, PGT Industries, which builds hurricane-proof windows, took up a 5.5-year lease to occupy 72,160 square feet at Lincoln Property Company’s Medley 104 Industrial Center located at 9400 NW 104th Street. Asking rents on the deal were $8.95 per square foot. The company, which will move in on April 1, is expanding its current operations and required additional space to distribute finished goods, said Ramoski.

Asking rents were $11 per square foot. C&W represented landlord Longpoint Property Group, and the tenant was represented by Agora Real Estate Group and Cresa Global’s Jeff Hartsook.
