Construction Approved for LaserShip in EastPark at Town Center | Jax Daily Record | Jacksonville Daily Record

E-commerce delivery company LaserShip is preparing to build at EastPark in Town Center.

The city issued a permit Nov. 8 to Lay Duckworth Construction to renovate 85,049 square feet of space for tenant LaserShip at 11902 Central Parkway at a cost of nearly $64,000.

LaserShip, based in Vienna, Va., applied July 25 for a certificate of use for the building. EastPark is southeast of Beach Boulevard and Interstate 295/St. John’s Bluff Road.

The use is for the delivery of small parcels.

The architect is RDB Design Associates Inc.

LaserShip has leased approximately 19,000 square feet of space at 9446 Philips Highway, Unit 1, Interstate South Commerce Center since June 2019, based on building permits.

LaserShip, founded in 1986, claims to be the largest regional e-commerce package carrier in the United States and a leader in last-mile delivery.

“For more than three decades, we have been the leading provider of last-mile delivery services to the nation’s largest e-retailers and product delivery companies,” he says in the job postings.

The stand-alone EastPark building was developed in 1997. Hartz Mountain Industries of Secaucus, New Jersey, paid $4.7 million for the property on August 10, 2021.

IEM Power Systems, which previously leased EastPark facilities since 2011, moved to a larger location in the NorthPoint Industrial Park.

Cushman & Wakefield managing directors Tyler Newman and Jacob Horsley are representing owner Hartz Mountain Industries Inc. in leasing the IEM building to LaserShip.

JLL Vice President Ross Crabtree represented LaserShip.

In October 2021, LaserShip and OnTrac announced that they would be teaming up to form the first coast-to-coast partnership for last-mile e-commerce deliveries.

LaserShip and OnTrac planned to start linking their networks in 2022.
