PORT ST. LUCIE, FLA. — Sansone Group plans to develop Tradition Commerce Park, a 3.2 million-square-foot light industrial and distribution center in Port St. Lucie. The St. Louis-based developer entered into an agreement with the Port St. Lucie City Council to acquire 300 acres for the property, which is situated at the northwest corner of Southwest Becker Street and Interstate 95. Sansone expects to break ground by the end of 2020 and deliver Phase I by the third quarter of 2021.

Crane and Alex Pappas of Sansone, along with Lee & Associates, represented the developer in the land transaction.
