The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) is seeking a tenant for 79 acres at property located at the existing Talleyrand Marine Terminal.
JAXPORT is currently soliciting proposals from Qualified Companies with the operational experience, financial capability and business vision to enter into a long-term lease agreement for the development JAXPORT-owned industrial in Jacksonville.
Specifically, JAXPORT seeks one or more tenant-operators who will support the growth of the port’s import and/or export cargo volumes.
The property is located at JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal and is rail served and has berthing access. It is currently occupied by Southeast Toyota Distributors, but will become available in 2025.
The Talleyrand terminal covers a total 251 acres and handles a variety of cargoes, including containerized freight, autos, breakbulk and liquid bulk commodities such as molasses and vegetable oils. Its on-dock rail facilities are run by Jacksonville Port Terminal Railroad, part of Watco companies, providing direct switching service for Norfolk Southern and CSX rail lines.
“The property provides flexibility because it is available for almost any maritime-related use that supports continued cargo growth at JAXPORT,” said JAXPORT Chief Communications Officer Chelsea Kavanagh.
“It is rare for such a large tract of industrial waterfront property to become available at a major U.S. seaport. The RFP is a chance for companies to evaluate the site, think ‘blue sky,’ and submit their best proposal,” Kavanagh added.
