Silver Springs Shores residents have easy access to highways that can seamlessly take them to work—and even more job opportunities will soon be available in the Ocala area. Ocala has experienced tremendous job growth in the distribution sector.
Ocala is home to two significant commerce parks that have contributed to this job growth. The Ocala/Marion County Commerce Park is located in the NE quadrant of Marion County and includes distribution centers for Amazon, FedEx, Chewy’s and AutoZone.
The Florida Crossroads Commerce Park is located in the SW quadrant of Marion County and is home to the Dollar Tree distribution center. Dollar Tree completed phase I of the project, a 500,000 square foot building, and has just started phase II. Once completed, the building will be approximately 1,000,000 square feet and will be the largest building in the state of Florida. These distribution centers create stable diversified employment for your potential tenant.
Plus, the Southwest 49th Avenue project will be in its third phase of construction. This project will alleviate commuting traffic along CR 484 and I-75, making it even more pleasant to reside in the outskirts of Ocala.
