Seagate Development Group hosted nearly two dozen Lee County leaders and Florida businesspeople during the ceremonial groundbreaking of 40-acre Alico Trade Center. This took place on July 2nd at the site of Seagate’s latest business park – Alico Road and Oriole Road in Fort Myers.

After introductions and a champagne toast by Seagate’s commercial division, team members from Seagate, Studio+, Quattrone & Associates, Lee County Economic Development, and Rice Insulation & Glass gathered for photo opportunities and refreshments.

Seagate is currently clearing the Alico Trade Center land for Rice Insulation’s 35,000-square-foot facility as well as other to-be-announced design-build projects. This first tenant’s space will include offices, a reception area, a conference room, training and break rooms, workstations, a warehouse of insulation, glass and shelving materials, high-dock and grade-level doors, and 100 parking spaces. It is slated for completion in in the fourth quarter of 2021, with all other single-tenant, flex and/or industrial buildings to be completed on an ongoing basis.

“Any business looking to expand their operations and create a space that’s all their own, without the typical barriers of a multi-tenant environment, can benefit from our world-class business park. We look forward to further demonstrating to new and growing companies how this area can change their business for the better as well as how our best work can help them conduct their best work,” said Matt Price, CEO & Partner at Seagate Development Group.
