Becknell starting on third Westlake Industrial Park building

Sep 8, 2023

With the first two warehouses completed, Becknell Industrial is preparing to develop Building 3 at Westlake Industrial Park in West Jacksonville.

The city is reviewing civil engineering plans for the 270,216-square-foot Building 3. Kimley-Horn is the civil engineer.

The city issued permits in March 2022 for construction of the first two warehouses at costs totaling $30 million.

Becknell developed the 270,216-square-foot Building 1 on 24.38 acres at $12 million and the 419,280-square-foot Building 2 on 35.64 acres at $18 million.

Miami-based Frida Baby is leasing Building 1. Frida, the parent company of Frida Baby and Frida Mom, sells bath, breast care, grooming, health care, oral care and other products for babies and mothers.

Becknell at Westlake Industrial Park is a three-building project totaling more than 960,000 square feet off Pritchard Road in Westlake, where Southeast Toyota and BJ’s Wholesale Club, among other companies, have a significant presence. The park is west of Interstate 295.

Colliers Senior Vice President Guy Preston and associate Seda Preston comprise the leasing team.
