Dalfen Industrial Breaks Ground on 896K-SF Development in Auburndale

Dallas, TX-based Dalfen Industrial has acquired 73.66 acres of land in Auburndale, FL with the plan to build two Class A industrial facilities totaling 896,400 square feet.

According to the company, the now under-construction development is one of the few industrial zoned sites in Central Florida without any wetland or floodplain issues. Notable tenants in the area include Amazon, Walmart, Pepsico, UPS and Sysco.

The property is located in the Lakeland, FL northeast/I-4 market with direct access to a full diamond interchange with I-4 & Hwy 559.

“This development has direct frontage on I-4, which will provide tenants access to over 7.9 million people in the broader Orlando/Tampa region,” said Tyler McElroy, southeast director of development at Dalfen. “Location in one of the top logistics corridors in Florida coupled with a strong labor pool make this an ideal development to add to the Dalfen portfolio.”

Dalfen Industrial owns 67 buildings in the Southeast.
