Brennan Awarded “Developer of the Year” by NAIOP Chapter

605,000 square foot state-of-the-art distribution facility at CenterState Logistics Park in Lakeland, Florida earns best developer recognition by NAIOP’s Tampa Chapter

Chicago, March 29, 2018

Brennan Investment Group, LLC, was recognized as “Developer of the Year” by the Tampa Chapter of NAIOP for its 605,000 square foot industrial development at the newly erected CenterState Logistics Park, in Lakeland, Florida. Brennan successfully leased the entire building in mid-2017, one of the largest industrial leases in central Florida in the past three years. Brennan will construct the second CenterState Logistics building, measuring 440,000 square feet, in the summer of 2018.

The 605,000 square foot distribution facility features 36’ clear height and is in the epicenter of the I-4 Corridor, midway between Tampa and Orlando. This location is key for distribution and logistics firms where as many as 20 million people can be reached within a 24-hour drive. The property and the park were designed to serve the significant demand for manufacturing, assembly, and distribution uses throughout Florida. Brennan owns, and master planned, the CenterState Logistics Park.

Bob Krueger, Brennan’s Southeast Managing Principal, is responsible for the oversight of the CenterState Logistics development project and is one of the most accomplished development professionals in the Florida market. This marks the third time Mr. Krueger has been named NAIOP Developer of the Year, having received the awards in 2006 and 2007. Mr. Krueger was the lead project developer on First Park at Bridgewater, the first major Class A development to be built in Lakeland, completed in 2004.
