Flagler kicks off construction of Titusville Logistics Center
Flagler Global Logistics officials on Monday marked the start of construction on the company's new Titusville Logistics Center, which will become Port Canaveral's first multimodal inland port facility.
Adjacent to Space Coast Regional Airport and minutes from Port Canaveral, Fla., the Titusville Logistics Center’s location — combined with a direct connection to the Florida East Coast Railway and access to U.S. Highway 1 and Interstate 95 — will provide a surge for the local economy as the demand for accessible cargo operations continues to grow, Flagler officials said in a press release.
"The development of Port Canaveral’s inland facility at the Titusville Logistics Center will help further leverage the region's centralized location and poise North Brevard County as a major national and international cargo hub,” said Flagler Global Logistics President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Scott.
The Canaveral Port Authority will be the center’s first major tenant. A build-to-suit lease agreement was signed last year. The 246,240-square-foot facility’s completion date is slated for sometime in early 2016.
"We see this as a significant step toward the rebirth of Titusville and as a strategically important multimodal transportation hub where we can build our future today," said Titusville Mayor Jim Tulley.
