Noland, a plumbing and air conditioning distributor, needed a central headquarters location in Southwest Florida for a warehouse, sales counter, showroom and offices.
The company found that at the Bernwood Business Park off Old 41 Road in Bonita Springs.
It constructed a 50,000-square-foot building inside the business park about two years ago.
″It's central to our territory,″ said Paul Bradley, manager of the complex, which serves Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties.
″We're very proud of this building. This is one of the state-of-the-art headquarters in the company.″
The upscale park, designed by Development Associates of Bonita Springs, is filling a niche for development in the city that includes commercial, light industrial and office uses.
It houses large and small businesses, wholesale and retail stores, restaurants and offices, a school and outparcels.
″I believe that customers are looking for ease of parking with a good mix of types of businesses,″ said Phillip Young, co-owner of Classic Floors, a high-end tile, marble, granite and wood floor store. His unit has a showroom in the front and storage space in the back.
″Our goal is to give the customer the highest quality of service available,″ he said.
″We feel the types of other businesses that are coming into this park are offering those types of things as well.″
The park's 110 acres stretch south on Old 41 Road from the railroad tracks to just before the Art League of Bonita Springs at Imperial Harbor Boulevard.
It boasts more than 8,000 feet of frontage on Old 41 and is bordered by residential communities to the west, east and south.
