Legacy Park/FedEx Ground project receiving national attention


The Sansone Group’s 425-acre development in Port St. Lucie, Legacy Park at Tradition, is receiving national and regional recognition.

The Class-A industrial park is currently home to a FedEx Ground 245,000-square-foot regional sortation center, a 220,000-square-foot Amazon delivery station is anticipated to open this fall, a 327,427-square-foot warehouse and distribution center for Cheney Brothers recently received site plan approval and two speculative facilities available for lease are also under construction.

In January, Business Facilities, a full-service media group that publishes site selection news from around the world, selected Legacy Park from entries throughout the country as its first Industrial Commercial Park Impact Award winner.

“We’re honored to have been awarded the 2021 Impact Award for the Industrial/Commercial Park category by Business Facilities magazine. We understand they had a record number of submissions this year, so it further validates the institutional quality of Legacy Park at Tradition, along with its unmatched location in a very competitive market like South Florida,” said Sansone Group Principal Nick Sansone. “This project is particularly special for us as the park is named after our founder, Anthony F Sansone Sr., and is continuing the legacy he left.”

In addition, nationally circulated Expansion Solutions magazine featured the park along with other county industrial developments in an article headlined “St. Lucie County -- South Florida’s hottest new industrial development market.”

In October 2021, the Florida Economic Development Council named the FedEx project its Urban Deal of the Year Award winner. NAIOP South Florida, the regional commercial real estate development association, selected Legacy Park as a finalist for its Economic Development Deal of the Year award, with winners to be announced in March.

“Legacy Park at Tradition is an exceptional industrial development anchoring the southern end of the city of Port St. Lucie’s jobs corridor along I-95. The Economic Development Council of St. Lucie County (EDC) is very fortunate to have prominent partners like the Sansone Group investing in our community for the long term,” said EDC President Peter Tesch.

The park is located at exit 114 on Interstate 95. At full build-out, Legacy Park will be home to approximately 5.4 million square feet of single- and multi-tenant Class-A, institutional quality light industrial and distribution facilities. Completion is anticipated this spring for the 520,000-square-foot cross-dock and 168,000-square-foot rear-loading speculative facilities currently under construction.

Companies located within the park are anticipated to ultimately employ more than 3,000 area residents.


Legacy Park at Tradition in Port St. Lucie is garnering national and regional accolades.
