NEXT DISTRIBUTION HUB OF SOUTH FLORIDA Port St. Lucie is an attractive cost alternative to Miami and Orlando and has gained a reputation for being the next distribution hub of Florida due to reasonable land prices, immense population growth, and the significantly cheaper cost of living compared to the rest of the state. 65% of the workforce in the county travel outside of the county for employment providing an excellent labor pool for future users. Further, the market has experienced 90% population growth in the last ten years, with over 15 million people (70% of the state population) within three hours of the site. St. Lucie County is known as a lower-cost, livable community compared to Central Florida (Orlando) and Miami, yet still offers connectivity with these markets due to Port St. Lucie’s robust transportation infrastructure. Furthermore, the region offers a stable and highly favorable tax climate coupled with a significantly lower cost of doing business compared to other markets due to lower facility costs, labor costs, corporate taxes and travel costs. In fact, St. Lucie County offers the lowest average annual labor costs in southeast Florida.
