Rosen Materials purchased a building through NPRCD in 2013, at 1102 N. 50th Street. In 2015, Rosen Materials was acquired by US LBM and found themselves with two facilities in the East Tampa market. Drew Rosen, CEO, asked NPCRD to assist in subletting their remaining term at 9609 Palm River Road, Tampa, FL 33619. Allied Building Products was interested in a facility that offered about 25,000 SF along with fenced outside storage. After visiting the site at Gibsonton, I introduced Allied Building Products to this facility and they leased it for occupancy beginning April 1, 2016.
This was the second transaction in early 2016 with a building materials company, a sure sign that the economy in Tampa was improving. Homebuilding is a major economic driver in our market and both of these companies rely on new construction for the success of their branches.
