Numerous investment opportunities abound in Polk County amid the commercial real estate market conditions, and motivated sellers with vacant land in prime locations are offering their properties at prices that command attention.

An example of one such property is situated at Avenue T and First Street Northeast in Winter Haven, which is a prime development location with a variety of options for the site. Approximately 6.5 total acres are available for sale or build to suit with C-3 zoning within the city limits and may be sub-divided. Surrounding national retail destinations include Auto Zone, Family Dollar, Home Depot and Cobb Theaters, and the property is situated within minutes to I-4, the Polk Parkway, downtown Winter Haven and US Highway 27. Angela Harwell, Broker for 6/10 Commercial, Inc. in Winter Haven states, "The C-3 zoning within the Winter Haven city limits allows for numerous uses including retail, office and non-profit."

Another example is approximately 3.77 acres of vacant land on US Highway 17 on the north side of Winter Haven. Angela Harwell states, "The site once housed a dock that was used to load citrus onto rail cars in years past, and the Rails to Trails recreational path which borders the back of the property has replaced the retired train tracks." Harwell continues, "This phenomenal opportunity includes the development permits for two 14,400 SF retail and office structures, and is zoned LCC (Linear Commercial Corridor) which encompasses a variety of uses including medical, government, office, retail restaurant, showroom / distribution and many others. There is approximately 650ft of frontage directly on US Highway 17 and a direct median cut for north and south access to the property is in place. This construction-ready project is priced below current appraisal at $650,000 which includes the land-holding LLC, which enables the buyer to acquire the parcel and entitlements to save precious time and money".

East of the Polk Parkway and less than one block south of US Highway 92 is another vacant land parcel with tremendous opportunity. Approximately 2.18 acres also zoned LCC are available with high visibility frontage on Recker Highway for $375,000. This area will benefit greatly from additional traffic flowing into the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex, which is located a couple of miles to the north of this site on Berkley Road. "That area has a lot of potential because of the continued commercial growth surrounding that property" states Robert Stevens, RSM and President of Robert A. Stevens & Associates Surveying, Mapping and Consulting. He further adds, "Auburndale is fast becoming the center of attention for growth in Central Florida with the focal point of the new Sports Complex, USF Polytechnic Campus, and well-planned infrastructure opportunities abound for commercial growth even during our current economic environment".
