Kroger/Ocado deal is a sign of 'new normal' in Central Florida real estate

Industrial real estate in Central Florida so far this year is a big deal — literally. The region has seen several large deals for Central Florida in 2019 from multiple large U.S. companies. On March 18, Cincinnati-based supermarket giant Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) and U.K.-based online-only grocer Ocado Solutions announced the construction of a 375,000-square-foot, e-commerce warehouse in Groveland.
