Miramar Business Center: Miramar, Florida

Guess what, Miramar? This city has some major industry. Atlanta-based, industrial real estate expert IDI built three huge buildings between Red Road and Flamingo Road on Miramar Parkway over the past 9 years. Here are some specifications for the third, Building C, just so you can get some perspective on the 30-foot ceilings! There is a contact from the company on that document, but my guess is that he was involved with the design or PR or something related to it being built. I did email him to see if there was leasing information he could help me find. I'll update that here if I find out. (BTW, if you know, feel free to fill me in.)

I did manage to come across one real estate listing with a broker contact and phone number. Perhaps if your company is seriously considering leasing space here, this would be a decent place to start. I probably just don't understand the undertaking that leasing one of these places requires. I doubt it's like calling Sally down at the corner office and faxing over a reference or two.

Anyway, this place has a ton of offices and loading docks, etc, with some big-time company names. These would be some of your neighbors. And if you live in Miramar, it's pretty cool that we have major industrial companies around the corner.

Hess Express: Flamingo Road and Miramar Parkway, Miramar Florida

Hola. It's been a month or so, but I am still around. Was on vacation for 10 days in New Jersey with my extended family. I took a few dozen photos yesterday of the area around Flamingo Road with Miramar Parkway, so stay tuned to find out about the explosion of businesses and housing communities there.

My intention was to go past Red Road and snap a few of the Police Department and Culinary Institute and others, but I was amazed at how many awesome companies are in my city, and didn't make it that far. Yet!

Hess Express, pictured above, which includes a Godfather's Pizza and Blimpie, is only a few years old. Hess and the CVS next to it were built on part of a pasture, which still exists. They just took the corner. I get gas here 50 weeks a year (the other two weeks I am out of town or need to get gas there on a Friday instead). Besides being ultra convenient for me, this Hess has the best prices in at least 15 miles, within a penny or two; it's never out of gas, and there are plenty of pumps. Bonus: there is a car wash and a WORKING free air machine for your tires. I'm sure you guys at MY Hess wont make me eat those words!

If you see a really cool guy there on Saturday mornings, be sure to say hello! If it's not me, well, you just made a different friend in this awesome city!
