Navy-occupied industrial building sells for $8 million


A real estate investment firm recently purchased a facility in Jacksonville used for military training.

Faropoint, which focuses on last-mile distribution, acquired 11660 Central Parkway for $8.3 million. Daniel Burkhardt and Jason J. Purdy of NAI Hallmark represented Faropoint in the transaction. Eric Bumgarner of Colliers International Northeast Florida represented seller Murali Holdings LLC.

The 65,806-square-foot building is 100% occupied by the Navy for use as a training facility. Marketing materials show the property was built in the 1980s but had a $16 million improvement project in 2021.

The deal is the latest in an incredibly active Jacksonville area industrial market. Experts say 2021 was one of the biggest years for industrial property in the area, and they expect 2022 to continue to see strong interest from potential tenants, investors and developers.
