FreezPak to open $50M Jax cold storage facility

$50M Cold Storage Warehouse Slated for Jax

Jacksonville issued a building permit to Industrial Building Group to construct a 275,000-square-foot cold storage warehouse, a popular industrial sector in the area. At least five refrigeration and cold-storage projects are in development, primarily in North Jacksonville

The FreezePak facility is expected to cost just under $50 million ($48.8 million) to build. The project comprises 212,000 square feet of freezer space, a 43,680-square-foot loading dock, a 9,728-square-foot office and utility and mechanical space.

The development began construction in August 2023, and completion is scheduled for October 2024.

FreezPak Logistics says it is a leading third-party food logistics company. The company said it will offer blast freezing, cross-docking, transportation, repacking and other services at the facility. 

The Jacksonville Daily Record reports FreezPak told the city its cold-storage and distribution facility would have at least 80 employees by year-end 2027. FreezePak is up for a grant from the city if they spend at least $95 million and hire the employees by the end of 2027.

Connect Industrial Midwest 2024 will take place on March 5, 2024, at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here for more information and to register.
