Foundry Commercial Named Exclusive Agent for Space Coast Town Center in West Melbourne
Posted on January 22, 2019
Sales to begin for retail, office and hospitality sites within 170-acre mixed-use development at US 192 and the St. Johns Heritage Parkway
Melbourne, Fla. (January 22, 2019) – Foundry Commercial, a full-service real estate services and investment company with operations across the Southeast and Texas, has been named the exclusive representative for the highly anticipated Space Coast Town Center, a mixed-use development featuring prime sites available for multi-family, retail, hospitality and office use near St. Johns Heritage Parkway in West Melbourne.
Tapped by veteran developer Edgar Jones of the Miami-based MultiVerse Global, Foundry Commercial will market retail, office and hospitality sites for sale within the 170-acre high-end community with many sites visible from I-95, US 192 and St. Johns Heritage Parkway. Construction of the multi-family component is slated to begin in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Well-known home builders such as Lennar and DR Horton have been constructing new homes in the Space Coast Town Center area for several years, serving the housing needs of a growing number of area employees in the technology, defense and aerospace industries.
On the edge of the lake within Space Coast Town Center, a village green will offer the opportunity for planned gatherings, concerts, and other recreational activities. Just north of the plaza and village green is an opportunity for a corporate office campus with lake views. The property, which is also expected to feature restaurants, cafes, and small shops, is bounded to the north by US 192 and is bisected by St. Johns Heritage Parkway.
“What really makes this site unique is its proximity to St. John’s Heritage Parkway designed to help relieve the traffic in the area. With so many homes going up in the area in the past several years, there was a real need to alleviate the congestion on I-95 and US 192. Now, with the relief route, those working in the technology, space and defense industries can easily travel between work and home,” said Randy Olen, principal, Foundry Commercial. “We’re proud to be a part of this major Space Coast project. Foundry brings a depth of knowledge especially with respect to retail, office and hospitality that is unparalleled.”
Plans show that Space Coast Town Center will include hundreds of thousands of square feet of office, retail and hospitality; a “green” grocery store; luxury multifamily housing units; and an attractive lake serving as the focal point for the waterfront plaza and surrounding buildings.
The developers showcased Space Coast Town Center during the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) annual conference last August in Orlando.
“Space Coast Town Center will be a completely integrated urban community – residents can wake up and take a jog around the lake, sip coffee prepared by their neighborhood barista, walk to work or hop a short commute along the relief route, and come home to the best restaurants in town,” stated Jones, principal, MultiVerse Global.
