FORT MYERS, Fla. — As Southwest Florida continues to experience record-breaking growth, Seagate Development Group is responding to the commercial sector’s surge in demand, given the recent changes in economic climate – including rising interest rates, rapidly increasing costs of goods and ongoing supply chain issues. Now, businesses are eager to finalize deals on land and construction to combat rising costs and the potential for even longer supply delays.
The leading, full-service development company is currently hiring professionals at every level of residential and commercial construction, project management, accounting, interior design, site development and aggregate processing to ensure it will continue to deliver top-notch service in the timeliest manner possible.
Additionally, Seagate is relying on its land and development as well as its commercial teams to carefully vet available property for numerous design-builds that companies are requesting. In this way, crews can confront the dilemma of having more buildings than land for them.
One example is the popularity of the Alico Corridor – ideally positioned by I-75 and Southwest Florida International Airport – once a collection of rural parcels that is now becoming Lee County’s hub for industrial and warehouse facilities. The demand for this location, as well as Constitution Plaza off U.S. 41 in South Fort Myers, comes from locally owned and existing companies that have outgrown their current space or need upgraded facilities, along with companies relocating or expanding to the Southwest Florida market.
“None of us have ever experienced a surge in demand or an economic climate like this before,” said Matt Price, CEO & Partner of Seagate Development Group. “It’s vital that our companies meet these times with the right people, resources and forward-thinking strategies, so that the landscape of Southwest Florida continues to evolve and progress.”
