The Indiantown Road property for years has been considered for possible corporate, high tech or medical use. Now the land’s owner is ready to sell it so someone else can figure out a plan.
A rare piece of prime vacant land has gone up for sale in Jupiter.
How long will it stay on the market? Probably not long, said Neil Merin, the broker hired to market the site.
The 83-acre property, dubbed the Hawkeye property, is at the gateway to Jupiter.
It is located on the southeast corner of Interstate 95 and Indiantown Road and is the last large I-95 interchange land in Palm Beach, Broward or Miami-Dade counties.
The asking price is about $38 million, said Merin, chairman of NAI/Merin Hunter Codman in West Palm Beach.
Real estate brokers are growing concerned that top tier office buildings have too much shadow sublease space.
Even as another project is up for consideration, West Palm Beach’s downtown office market is loaded with empty space, and there is little demand from tenants outside the area wanting to lease large offices, real estate professionals say.
Interviews with real estate developers and brokers indicate that the city’s Class A office buildings, which typically attract the top tenants, have plentiful space available directly from the buildings, or from office tenants that are trying to sublease their space.
We want to wish a hearty thank you to all sponsors, moderators, panelists, and guests that attended our 2019 NAI Florida & Caribbean Forum – making it one of our most well attended Forums to date!
