An office park is under construction this summer at Butler’s Crossing next to Publix. The driveway to the future development was constructed more than a decade ago, but it wasn’t until November 2017 that the property was approved for development. 

There will be 12 buildings ranging from 4,000 square feet up to 7,200 square feet within the complex. The majority of them will be 5,000 square feet. 

Contractor John Hadden said that there are no tenants secured as of deadline but that the development is geared toward medical and professional office space. He hopes to have the shells of the building complete within the next 90 days. 

Two stop signs will be added at appropriate thoroughfares. The existing residential uses to the rear and east of the site will be buffered by a 10-foot undisturbed natural buffer coupled with an additional 15-foot vegetative buffer for a total of 25 feet in accordance with the Unified Development Code. 

The subject property was rezoned in 1995 as a part of an overall 24.574 acre commercial development. The existing seven parcels were final platted as a professional park in 2002.
