CITY OF WESTLAKE, FL – (December 19, 2022) – Commercial development activities remain robust in Westlake as Minto Communities has sold a 9-acre parcel to a West Palm Beach e-commerce company that plans to relocate its corporate office and operations to the city. The transaction closed December 15th. Terms were not disclosed.
The City of Westlake has already approved plans for Jamlyn Supply Inc. to develop the 145,643-square- foot James Business Park which will be composed of a 10,103-square-foot office/flex building and a 135,540-square-foot warehouse/distribution facility. The site is located on the corner of West Persimmon Boulevard and Town Center Parkway, just west of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.
The development site is also adjacent to the Publix at Westlake Plaza, currently under construction, where Jamlyn has leased a 3,600-square-foot retail storefront for its first brick-and-mortar store, Aubrey’s Pet Supplies. The pet supply business is expected to open in the first quarter of 2023.
“We are pleased to welcome another thriving business to Westlake,” said John Carter, Minto Communities USA Senior Vice President. “I expect Jamlyn Supply will be a great complement to all the other companies that have decided to put a stake in the ground in our growing city.”
“We are truly excited to be relocating our e-commerce business to Westlake and opening our first brick-and-mortar retail shop,” said Julianna Silva, special projects manager for Jamlyn. “Our ownership has deep roots in the area and looks forward to becoming part of the community.”
Jamlyn expects to move into its new home in the first quarter of 2024.
This is the second light industrial development coming to Westlake. In May 2022, Mitchell Property Realty, Inc. and Ridgeline Property Group acquired a 17.5-acre site from Minto to develop the Westlake Commerce Center, a 227,000 square foot warehouse/distribution/office complex in Westlake Landings, a 50-acre master-planned business park. Groundbreaking is expected soon.
Both warehouse projects are part of a broader construction boom taking place in Westlake. Retail developer Konover South is planning to develop two retail centers and a pod of quick-service restaurants in Westlake Landings. Over the past 15 months, two 7-Eleven stores opened for business, as did a new regional service center for the Palm Beach County Tax Collector’s Office.
Just off Seminole Pratt Whitney Road, Christ Fellowship Church is expected to open its brand new, 800-seat worship center in the first quarter of 2023.
On the residential side, Minto, the master developer and primary homebuilder at Westlake, is selling homes in phase 2 of The Orchards, which will have a total of 241 single-family homes. In addition, estate homes and townhomes are still available for purchase with prices starting in the $400s. Minto also expects to complete Phase 2 of the $22 million amenities center, the Westlake Adventure Park, in the first quarter of 2023. It will feature basketball courts, an adult lap pool, a multi-purpose building and event lawn, in addition to the numerous amenities already open to residents.
The Westlake Sales Center is located at 16610 Town Center Parkway North in the City of Westlake, on Seminole Pratt Whitney Road between Southern Blvd. and Northlake Blvd. For more information on the community, call 888-299-3628 or visit www.WestlakeFL.com.
