Residents may have noticed that Bloomingdale Ave. has a development trend on its pavement, with the newest addition coming in the form of a 52,500-sq.-ft. professional park by the name of Executive Park of Valrico.

Located adjacent to Plaza Bella, near the intersection of Bell Shoals Rd. and Bloomingdale Ave., Executive Park of Valrico will be offering those with a professional background the option to choose amongst three elevations: the Ashton, the Biltmore and the Carlton. Each building averages 3,500 sq. feet, but if clients choose, the building can be altered to accommodate just 1,750 sq. feet, being shared with another tenant, or increased to span some 10,500 sq. feet. An estimated 15 business spaces are planned to be constructed, with five parking spaces allocated for every 1,000 sq. feet.

The vision for the park came from the mind of Dr. Jim Antunano, owner and veterinarian of Animal Medical Diagnostic Center which is housed directly next to the land – approximating nine acres – at 1102 E. Bloomingdale Ave. in Valrico. Having purchased the land in 1994, Antunano always wanted to develop a professional park in the area.

“All the businesses here are going to benefit from it,” he says. “It will have a positive impact.”

Having started construction some four years ago, Executive Park of Valrico was constructed by CBG Contracting, Inc., with contractor Bernie Gifford citing a past portfolio of clients which includes Riverview’s Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse and Weecare for Kids, as well as Brandon’s Play N Trade and Spun Gold Jewelers. Antunano is offering competitive pricing for these units, with costs starting at $350,000 for the 1,750-sq.-ft. building, offering a build-out allowance of $40,000, and continuing upwards to $615,000 for the 3,500-sq.-ft. structure, which comes with a build-out allowance of $85,000.

“The executive park maintains a great value of ownership versus renting,” concludes Antunano.
