Henin Launching Phases 3 and 4 of Springview Woods Sooner than Planned in DeBary, FL; Phases 1 and 2 nearly Sold Out

Jerome Henin
DeBary, FL---   Henin Group’s Springview Woods, which opened in 2018, will launch Phases 3 and 4 with another 97 homesites at the 64-acre community of single-family homes by D.R. Horton.  

  Nine new homes were just sold in March.  Phases 1 and 2 at Springview Woods are nearly sold out less than a year after the homebuilder opened its model home at 400 Tallow Wood Circle at the community off U.S. 17-92, down the street from West Volusia SunRail Station.

New one and two-story single-family homes in six distinct designs with three to five bedroom floor plans are priced starting from the mid $200s. 

D.R. Horton is the preferred builder at the community with ongoing successful sales from their model home.

“We’re pretty sure the remaining homes in Phases 1 and 2 will go pretty fast, so we have launched final phases 3 and 4 sooner than expected.  Infrastructure and site development is already underway there with completion anticipated in October,” said Jerome Henin,  president of Henin Group.

“Sales are going extremely well at this development as more and more homebuyers who commute are open to public transportation and living near the SunRail,” he explained.    

There will be 195 homes in all four phases of Springview Woods. Buildout is projected to be in 2022.   The Junction, a new town center that will be getting underway nearby on 17-92 is also slated for completion by 2022.

JLL Q1 Phoenix Industrial Report highlights rise of 50,000 SF-- to 200,000-SF sector; Mid-bay product represents nearly half of all industrial construction

Kyle Westphall

PHOENIX, AZ  – According to JLL’s Q1 Phoenix Industrial Market Report, the mid-bay industrial market now represents 42.1 percent of the Valley’s under construction industrial stock. 

The report points to a lack of product in the 50,000- to 200,000-square-foot size range as a driver of this new construction.

“For many years, demand for Phoenix industrial space has centered around very large, e-commerce and distribution-focused tenant requirements,” said JLL Vice President Kyle Westfall.

9494 West Buckeye Road, Phoenix, AZ
“The rise of the mid-bay sector is a welcome addition to that demand. It balances out our industrial landscape and allows the large-scale and mid-size sectors to grow in tandem and complement each other – a trend we think will continue in a very robust way.”

As noted by JLL, mid-bay product has recorded more than 5 million square feet in gross leasing in the past 18 months, at an average rate of three deals per month and an average lease size of just under 100,000 square feet. The first quarter continued to reflect that trend, recording nine deals that collectively total just under 900,000 square feet.

The Southwest submarket enjoyed the lion’s share of mid-bay leasing activity with 528,410 square feet, or 72.6 percent, of all first quarter commitments. The largest of these deals was CHEP Pallets, taking the full 186,336-square-foot building at 9494 W. Buckeye Rd. for warehousing and distribution.

In metro Phoenix, there are currently 23 mid-bay projects underway. Together, these total more than 2.5 million square feet, or 42.1 percent, of all local industrial stock currently under construction.

“Mid-bay industrial demand is rising at a rapid enough pace that some of these projects are already starting to see pre-lease activity,” said Westfall.

“One example is 777 South 67th Avenue, which has already secured a 109,620-square-foot lease by United Foods International that will take over half of the 187,920-square-foot building.”

As demand increases, so are mid-bay industrial rents, now sitting at an average $0.67-per-square-foot, a 28.8 percent premium over the Valley’s average asking rate of $0.52-per-square-foot.

Across the Phoenix industrial sector, first quarter industrial fundamentals remain strong. Six million square feet of new space is under construction alongside 1.3 million square feet of net absorption, and overall rental rates have increased by 4 percent year-over-year.
