“To us, this is not just a big building that we just need for space but also a place where our people can relax, play, learn, and develop. A place they will feel proud to belong to. A place where we will be able to increase our manufacturing range, proudly made in USA. A place that will allow us to grow in an efficient and organized way. A place for our customers to learn and grow their own businesses. It will be our home. And because we like things well done, it will enhance the commercial area of our wonderful Miami.”
Mr. Willy Fernandez, President of Link Construction, sharing a moment with one of the guests.
Mr. Guillermo Fernandez, President of Link Construction Group, was quoted as saying, “This project means the world to us” and also added that he is extremely grateful to the Uribe family for entrusting them to build this state-of-the-art-facility. “We are committed to getting it done because we have the team and the expertise in completing the project.” He concluded by saying, “In 18 months, we will be celebrating with a ribbon cutting,” which statement was met with loud applause.
The new building will have 3 floors of office space totaling 90,000 sq. ft. and 2 floors of warehouse space consisting of approximately 380,000 sq. ft. The development will allow the company to consolidate and improve its existing operations. The building will be located at 5900 NW 74th Ave, Miami, Florida 33166, which is close to Costex’s current location. It is expected to be completed in 18 months, just in time for the celebration on the company’s 40th year anniversary.
The project site will incorporate vast green areas, which will allow for walking, running and bike paths that will be spread over the 17- acre property to promote wellness amongst our employees. The building will also use locally sourced natural materials such as wood and stone in many of its design elements. When entering the main lobby you will come into an atrium which includes a central staircase with an expansive view of the Miami Canals, bringing the feeling of the “outdoors,” indoors.
The back lobby features a quiet, communal location for customers and employees to have meetings and conduct business. Spread throughout the building are several conference rooms which can be used for meetings or social interaction
“I’m proud that I could be here with the Uribe Family, all business officers and community leaders, celebrating this historic moment for this company and all it represents here in our community” said Jeanette Nuñez, Lieutenant Governor of Florida.
Mr. Juan Carlos Bermudez, Mayor of the City of Doral, reiterating the importance of this project and the benefits it will have on the local community.
Juan Carlos Bermudez, the Mayor of the City of Doral, also congratulated the Uribe family and reiterated the importance of this kind of investment being a critical part for the future of South Florida. He also emphasized the positive ripple effect that it will have on the local community.
“Today, Costex has the power to change the economic landscape in Miami”, noted George Bemudez, Senior Vice President for Bank of America
