14 Jul Seagate Breaks Ground on Final Phase of EmCyte HQ
Seagate Development Group has broken ground on the final phase of EmCyte Corporation’s headquarters.
Located at 4331 Veronica S. Shoemaker Blvd. in Fort Myers, the $2.2-million project will add 13,000 square feet of warehouse space to a new building and a 2,000-square-foot office facility to EmCyte’s preexisting 30,000-square-foot headquarters. Crews will also renovate a 5,000-square-foot manufacturing space for the leading autologous regenerative biologics company.
Seagate has poured the slab and is currently conducting site work. The next three months will be dedicated to foundational components, walls and roofing, exterior windows, irrigation, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, drywall, interiors and more.
The final phase of EmCyte – slated for completion in the fourth quarter of 2021 – will include additional parking and travel lanes for deliveries as well as an enclosed corridor for a covered pathway that connects the new and current facilities.
This third EmCyte project comes less than a year after Seagate completed the second phase – the sequel to a smaller Seagate remodel that continues to evolve with the firm’s productivity and ever-increasing growth. Just months ago, the world-renowned Edison Awards recognized Founder, President & CEO Patrick Pennie as a Modern-Day Black Innovator for his industry advancements.
“We are proud of our ongoing partnership with Patrick and his impressive company. It demonstrates how a project of this magnitude can align with a company’s global impact as well as how a relationship with a tenant can became a landscape-changing expansion and renovation for Southwest Florida,” said Matt Price, CEO & Partner at Seagate Development Group.
