Seagate Development Group makes a mark its first year



Seagate Development Group’s two-story, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath Grenada model is one of two models that will be completed at Windward Isle in North Naples next month. A grand opening event will be held January 22-24.

Since beginning operations earlier this year, Seagate Development Group LLC has established itself as one of Southwest Florida’s leading full-service commercial and residential development and construction and commercial property management companies.

Seagate is owned and managed by a five-member partnership that includes Bill Price, Jim Hamilton, Matt Price, Joe Schulz, and James Nulf. Commercial and residential real estate development and construction are provided by Seagate Development Group, a licensed Florida contractor. SW Management and Realty LLC, a related entity, is a licensed entity that provides commercial property management and brokerage services. Seagate’s development, construction, management, and brokerage services are readily available to third parties.

The company’s thoughtfully devised and aggressively executed strategy that is focused on the expansion of its commercial real estate development, commercial construction, commercial property management and brokerage, and luxury residential development and construction businesses, resulted in significant achievements during 2015.

Through transactions completed by its principals, Seagate acquired controlling interest of 515,000 square feet of multi-tenant flex space and one-story office space in the Westlinks and Eastlinks Business Parks on Daniels Parkway, north of the Southwest Florida International Airport. At the time of acquisition, the properties were appraised at $40 million. With the acquisition, Seagate’s portfolio of commercial properties under management expanded to over one million square feet and they are actively looking to extend their growing footprint. Tenants at Westlinks and Eastlinks include companies such as Diamond Tours, Norman Love, Neogenomics, Staples, Lee Memorial, Home Depot, Cintas — Fire, Florida Cancer, Nestle, Data2Logistics, Red Bull, Alorica, Survival Armor, G&K Services, Walgreens, and ADP. Tenants in third party properties managed and leased by Seagate include Comcast, Robb & Stucky, Cintas Uniform, Lamar, Option Care, Airgas, Rexel, and Safran. Seagate is currently engaged in commercial construction and tenant improvement projects with an aggregate value of $3 million.

Last spring, Seagate acquired a tract just south of Orange Blossom Drive on Airport-Pulling Road in North Naples and is developing Windward Isle, a gated enclave of 28 single-family luxury homes. The community is being developed by Seagate in partnership with Southborough, Massachusetts-based Capital Group Properties LLC. Two closed sales and one reservation have been processed since November. Infrastructure installation has been completed, including all utilities, a gated entry sequence, a perimeter wall, and the community’s streetscape. Seagate will celebrate the completion of two furnished models with a grand opening event on Jan. 22, 23 and 24.

Windward Isle offers three floor plans, two by Weber Design Group and one by RG Designs, featuring more than 3,000 square feet under air and pricing starting in the $1 millions.
