MIAMI-In three separate transactions, CSX Transportation has sold more than 41 acres of industrial land recently in South Florida for more than $4.7 million combined.

The buyers are primarily users that plan to build buildings for their own purposes on the land, Harry E. Wardell, a vice president with locally based Lincoln Property Co., tells Wardell and Steven J. Medwin, also a vice president with Lincoln Property represented CSX Transportation in all three sales.

“CSX has always sold their surplus land,” Wardell says. These three pieces totaling 41.1 acres were the last three pieces of CSX’s surplus land in South Florida and almost on the whole East Coast of Florida, he says.

Coparts Inc., which holds wrecked automobiles until insurance companies inspect them, purchased the biggest tract of land.
