Cecil Commerce Center™ is a significant, long-term economic development asset to the City of Jacksonville, representing more than three percent of the land area in Duval County (17,000 acres). It is one of the most sought after locations in the Southeastern United States for manufacturing, supply chain logistics and industrial end users. This industrial and commercial-zoned site offers mid to large-size parcels for development. It has incredible transportation and utility infrastructure, is adjacent to I-10 and home to the third-longest runway in Florida.
In 2010, Jacksonville City Council unanimously approved a 25-year agreement with Hillwood to be master developer of approximately 4,475 acres of City-owned property at Cecil Commerce Center™. Hillwood has the expertise, track record and private capital resources needed to develop this large industrial site and create the job haven and economic driver for Jacksonville that the community has envisioned. In addition to branding the site with their premiere brand name – AllianceFlorida at Cecil Commerce Center™, Hillwood will invest more than $1.3 billion to develop the entire 31-million-square-foot master plan. These developments will attract the companies that will bring thousands of new jobs and expand the tax base.
