FORT MYERS, Fla. (Sept. 1, 2022) – Southwest Florida’s Tesla drivers will be excited to hear Gary Tasman, CEO and Principal Broker, and Shawn Stoneburner, Senior Director, of Cushman and Wakefield | Commercial Property Southwest Florida, LLC have just leased 44,800 square feet of industrial space at the Gulfcoast Industrial Campus to Tesla for their new regional repair facility. Tesla signed a 10-year lease with SFG ISF Fort Myers Lee, LLC, owners of Gulfcoast Industrial Campus located at 16180 Lee Rd, Fort Myers.
This is big news for Southwest Florida considering Florida is in second place for Tesla ownership in the country. In 2021, statistics reflected 107,000 plug-in electric vehicles in the state, 54% of that total in Tesla vehicle models, echoing the need for a facility of this type in this market. The new facility’s great location off I-75, just 15 minutes from the Tesla dealership on the corner of Colonial Boulevard and Colonial Center Drive, is situated conveniently to service Tesla customers from Charlotte and Collier Counties, joining Tampa and Sarasota as the only official Tesla service centers on Florida’s west coast.
Tesla is a welcome addition among some of the noteworthy tenants setting roots along the Alico Road corridor following corporate giant, Amazon, earlier this year. Gulfcoast Industrial Campus has a variety of highlights providing a perfect location for the well-known brand, notably being professionally managed and maintained by Cushman and Wakefield | Commercial Property Southwest Florida, but also offering 107 paved parking spaces in the fenced in concrete paved yard, offering security and plenty of parking. The onsite logistical accommodations aligned with Tesla’s mission to drive the transition to motor sustainability and energy-efficiency and helps to solidify the electric vehicle ecosystem to Southwest Florida.
