Frampton Construction underway on industrial project in Ocala, Florida
Charleston, S.C. — Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has started work on a 458,758-square-foot speculative industrial building located within Marion County in Ocala, Fla. Stonemont Financial Group, a privately held real estate investment firm, is co-developing the project with US Capital Development, a real estate development company based in St. Louis, Mo.
Consisting of concrete tilt walls and a structural steel frame, the cross-dock facility will have a 36-foot clear height with storefront office space located at its southeast corner. The building will feature 151 dock doors, four drive-in doors, and 110 trailer parking spaces.
Alex Seglem, senior project manager at Frampton Construction, noted, “Our team is excited to build this facility in a part of Ocala that is quickly becoming a key supply chain destination for major companies like Amazon and Costco. We’re grateful for the opportunity to cultivate a new partnership with both Stonemont Financial Group and US Capital.”
The facility’s location, minutes from I-75, will provide tenants with strategic interstate proximity. Thirty-five acres worth of sitework is being performed in preparation for the half a million-square-foot facility.
“We are excited to be partnering with US Capital Development and Frampton Construction to deliver Class A warehousing space in a supply constrained market. We look forward to a successful delivery and partnering with both groups on future projects,” said Avery Dorr, vice president at Stonemont Financial Group.
HDA Architects completed the design for the building. Tillman and Associates is the civil engineer on the project, and Alper Audi is the structural engineer. Construction is expected to conclude in April of 2023.
