The shuttered McArthur Dairy plant near Opa-Locka could be redeveloped into a pair of warehouses.
Miami-Dade County officials received pre-application on April 3 and a zoning application on April 5 for the 20.3-acre site at 3000 N.W. 123rd Street. Just north of the Gratigny Parkway, the property was developed as a dairy plant in 1993 but it’s been abandoned.
The application calls for redeveloping it into 446,535 square feet of industrial surrounded by 449 car parking spaces and 136 truck parking spaces. The warehouses in Gratigny Logistics Center would total 220,700 and 225,835 square feet.
The property is owned by ZSF/WD Opa Locka LLC, a subsidiary of Zurich Insurance Group. According to the application, it’s under contract to CP Logistics Opa Locka LLC, an affiliate of Nashville-based Panattoni Development Co. The main owner of the developer is the California State Teachers Retirement System, with Carl Panattoni holding a minority interest.
It was designed by Chisholm Architects.
Miami attorney Maritza Haro Salgado, who represents the developer in the application, couldn’t be reached for comment. – Brian Bandell
