POMPANO BEACH, FL, JANUARY 13, 2022 — Cushman & Wakefield’s South Florida Industrial Team has brought Cypress Pointe Distribution Center to full occupancy securing two leases totaling ±153,495 square feet at the recently-completed warehouse and distribution center.

JFC International, Inc. leased ±87,189 square feet in the building. The company is a subsidiary of Kikkoman Corporation, a food distributor with more than a century of experience delivery healthy, safe, high-quality Asian food products across North America from a network of strategically located distribution centers.

Reload Floating Energy will utilize the space at Cypress Pointe Distribution Center for the manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution of AccuSolar products. AccuSolar builds on AccuDock’s 25-year history of floating product design and manufacturing, bringing the concept of floating structures into the renewable energy market with innovative approaches to utilize bodies of water for large utility scale floating solar installations. The technology was recently implemented in a one megawatt floating solar array at Tampa Electric’s (TECO) Big Bend Facility.
Berger Commercial’s Jonathan Thiel and Keith Graves represented Reload Floating Energy in the lease negotiations.
Cypress Pointe Distribution Center is located at 1800 SW 13th Court in Pompano Beach.
