MIAMI-Fresh Concepts Inc. found more than just operating space in an 18,400 sf lease signed with MICC Inc., owner of the 350-acre Miami International Commerce Center.

The Charlotte, NC-based floral distributor also negotiated a separate equipment-lease agreement at an undisclosed value to use an on-site cooler system belonging to the prior tenant at the 100,000-sf building.

Based on industry estimates, Fresh Concepts paid roughly $7.06 per sf on a five -year lease for a total value of about $650,000.

“This company is very proactive,” Ron Berger, a Trammell Crow Co. vice president who specializes in industrial properties, tells “The opportunity was right, the space was right, they said let’s do it.”

Berger represented the tenant. Kelly Burns, a broker with Kennedy-Wilson Florida Management, negotiated for the property owner.

MICC owns and operates more than fourmillion sf of dock-height space in the Miami-Dade County airport/west submarket.
