February 17, 2022

St. Louis, Missouri — February 17, 2022 — Sansone Group, a full-service Commercial Real Estate firm located in St. Louis, has been selected as one of 2021’s top Deals of the year by Business Facilities magazine. Officials stated that “due to the high number of deals that were completed in 2021, this year’s awards competition brought in a record-setting number of submissions.”

Sansone Group was awarded the 2021 Impact Award for Industrial/Commercial Park for their first completed building for FedEx Ground in a multi-building industrial commerce park in the City of Port St. Lucie, Florida, named Legacy Park at Tradition Center for Commerce.

Nick Sansone, Principal at Sansone Group, commented, “We’re honored to have been awarded the 2021 Impact Award for the Industrial/Commercial Park category by the 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. This project is particularly special for us as the park is named after our Founder, Anthony F Sansone Sr., in continuing the legacy he left.” Jeff Greenwalt, National Director of Industrial Development at Sansone Group, continued, “We’re lucky to be working with the City of Port St. Lucie, our friends at the Economic Development Council, and our 2021 Fortune 50 Tenant, FedEx, who all deserve credit for making this project happen.”

“This process was by far the most extensive and interesting one for us in years,” said Seth Mendelson, Editorial Director of Business Facilities. “We had so many worthy entries and so many huge projects announced during last year that we knew it was going to be difficult…Our judges did an admirable job of selecting these winners, and we are proud to announce them in the pages of our magazine and on” Other category winners included Ford Motor Company, Samsung Electronics, and KORE Power, among other heavy hitters across the country. Business Facilities’ 2021 Deal of the Year judges were Howard Silverman, President and CEO, The CAI Global Group; Philip Anderson, President and CEO, P.W. Anderson & Partners; David Hickey, Managing Director, Hickey & Associates; Angelos Angelou, President of Angelou Economics.

“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. Legacy Park at Tradition, a 425-acre industrial zoned development, is positioned along I-95 and SW Becker Road. In partnership with Northbridge, the firm just closed on an additional 40.9-acre speculative Industrial Development. The two Class-A speculative industrial facilities, including a 520,000 square foot cross-dock building and a 168,000 square foot rear-load building, will be developed and slotted for a spring 2022 completion. The two buildings will accompany Sansone Group’s two built-to-suit projects for FedEx Ground’s 245,000 square foot sortation center and Amazon’s 220,000 square foot facility delivery station. Total, this increases Sansone Group’s current footprint to just under 1,000,000 square feet in South Florida.

Once completed, Legacy Park will include a total of approximately 5.5 million square feet of single and multi-tenant class-A, institutional quality light industrial and distribution facilities. Legacy Park offers large tenants the ability to have modern state-of-the-art facilities for manufacturing and distribution, and Port St. Lucie provides an ideal location and has a tremendous labor pool for these facilities.
