The building has Palmetto Expressway frontage and is located at the southeast quadrant of the Palmetto Expressway and Okeechobee Road, offering easy access to major thoroughfares for distribution throughout South Florida.

Transwestern Real Estate Services represented Seagis, the landlord of the freestanding building at 8150 NW 76th Ave., in securing the long-term industrial lease. Transwestern’s South Florida industrial team of Managing Director Thomas Kresse, Executive Managing Directors Walter Byrd and Ben Eisenberg, and Vice President Carlos Gaviria handled the transaction. Lee Katsikos of The Katsikos Group represented the tenant during the lease transaction.

Kresse said in a prepared statement Seagis invested significantly in the building after the previous tenant vacated in December. He described Del Valle Brands as a stable tenant that is indicative of the kind of industrial activity they have been seeing in Miami-Dade County among larger tenants.

Transwestern team

In December 2019, the same Transwestern team was part of the brokerage group that negotiated a new, long-term lease at an 80,000-square-foot cold storage facility at the Beacon at 97th Avenue industrial park in Doral, Fla. Transwestern represented the tenant, SPR Global Storage & Logistics, and JLL assisted landlord Prologis. The property at 2000 NW 97th Ave. is located in Miami’s Airport submarket. In April, the same Transwestern brokerage team arranged two industrial leases totaling 104,055 square feet in the Airport and Medley submarkets. The team represented the tenants in both lease transactions. Miami-Dade has become one of the nation’s most desirable industrial markets, particularly because of its proximity to Miami International Airport, the Port of Miami and major roadways.
