JAXPORT seeks proposals to lease 79-acre property


The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a long-term lease of up to 79 acres of industrial property on JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal.

Proposals are due by 21 June to identify one or more companies for a long-term lease.

JAXPORT has reported that it prefers proposals that cover all parcels but it will consider proposals for only a portion of the available acreage.

The facility, currently occupied by Southeast Toyota Distributors, will be available in 2025.

The site offers direct access up to 79 acres of paved, fenced property in four adjacent parcels at the marine terminal, a berth alongside Jacksonville’s federal shipping channel (St. Johns River), on-dock rail by multiple providers, and port-designated roadway.

Opportunities for the property include import/export distribution, cross-docking, warehousing (dry or cold), cargo terminal operations, or any similar use that supports JAXPORT’s cargo growth.

Proposals involving waterborne vehicle/Ro-Ro distribution or import/export warehousing for breakbulk commodities are also welcome.

“The property provides flexibility because it is available for almost any maritime-related use that supports continued cargo growth at JAXPORT,” said JAXPORT Chief Communications Officer, Chelsea Kavanagh.

Earlier this year, JAXPORT secured complete funding for a vital project to raise the Fulton Cut Crossing powerlines near Blount Island Marine Terminal.

More recently, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) presented JAXPORT with a $35 million refund for unused prepayments from the recently completed Jacksonville Harbor Deepening project.
