PORT MANATEE
Palmetto, FL

The Port Manatee Commerce Center is a six building, 310,000 square foot, intermodal facility with two private rail sidetracks serving two large warehouses. The property is located only three minutes, via a port-owned road, from the 12 deepwater berths at Port Manatee. The property is also a 35 minute drive from Port Tampa and three minutes from the I-75/I-275 intersection on Florida’s gulf coast.

Port Manatee is the closest U.S. seaport to both the newly expanded Panama Canal and Cuba’s newest and largest cargo port at Muriel.  Port facilities comprise approximately 1,100 acres of land, a ship basin, ten 40 foot berths, and two mobile harbor cranes that can load and unload cargo at multiple locations. As a leading economic engine in the area, Port Manatee adds more than $2.3 billion dollars annually in regional economic impact and supports more than 24,000 jobs. The port moves approximately 10 million tons of containerized, breakbulk, bulk and project cargo each year including fresh produce, lumber, petroleum, citrus juice, fertilizer, steel, and aluminum.

Due to the rapid growth at the port, The Ninigret Group has begun work with the Port Authority to potentially provide dry and refrigerated warehouse either in, adjacent or near the port. Wide-ranging development incentives augment the port’s unparalleled geographic location and should continue to attract commerce from around the world.

North Temple Landfill
Salt Lake City, UT

The North Temple Landfill is a closed municipal landfill occupying 770 acres within Salt Lake’s Northwest Quadrant that was operated by the Salt Lake City Corporation between 1959 and 1979, accepting waste from Salt Lake City and other local entities. The Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA) selected Ninigret to assist the agency with the remediation and subsequent development of the property.

SITLA, which is an independent agency managing the state’s 4.5 million acres of surface and mineral estate on behalf of the public education system and other state institutions, acquired the property in 2018. After acquiring the property, SITLA entered into Utah’s Voluntary Clean Up Program intent on remediating the landfill, redeveloping the property and returning the parcel back into productive use. The parcel occupies a strategic market position within Salt Lake’s Northwest Quadrant, an area earmarked for significant development. With rail and interstate highway access already in-place, the property meets the needs of many companies looking to locate in this growing region.

Ninigret has been actively involved with the North Temple Landfill since 2006 and has developed a significant level of knowledge pertaining to site conditions and possible remedial action alternatives. This site knowledge, combined with Ninigret’s success on previous brownfield projects and overall real estate development expertise, made Ninigret SITLA’s logical choice.

Ninigret Depot
Tooele, UT

In 2012, The Ninigret Group purchased over 2 million square feet of World War II vintage industrial buildings, 800 acres of partially rail-served land, and a self-storage business crafted out of older tank storage facilities. Due to its strategic location 30 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport and extensive rail system throughout the property, Ninigret Depot provides exceptional transportation access for its users.

About 60 tenants currently operate at the Ninigret Depot including Detroit Diesel, Utah Transit Authority, Walmart, Utah Fabrication and the Tooele City school district. In 2014, Cabela’s purchased land to build a 600,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, distribution facility creating approximately 250 jobs. In 2015, Airgas, Inc. one of the nation’s leading suppliers of industrial medical and specialty gases, opened a 20,000 square foot facility. More recently, LKQ Corporation, a Fortune 500 company and leading provider of alternative and specialty parts for automobiles and other vehicles, selected Ninigret Depot to locate a new processing facility and storage yard.

Ninigret Depot is recognized as a preferred site by the Economic Development Corporation of Utah and the Salt Lake commercial brokerage community because of the accessibility to Salt Lake, rail-served land and availability of large tracks of industrial land with utilities already in-place at a cost significantly less than that of Salt Lake City center.
