Haines City Industrial Park
The Haines City Industrial Park is located to the south of Haines City. Companies that manufacture and distribute lumber, trusses, pavers, aerated concrete blocks and other housing components have located in and around the industrial park to take advantage of the City’s rail spur connected to the main CSX line. Also on the railroad spur, a paper manufacturer/distributor invested $30 million to install a new paper manufacturing machine and build 88,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Developers are building office parks and warehouse space for lease to businesses not yet ready to build their own facilities.
The Haines City Industrial Park is located in the “Heart of Florida’s” I-4/Highway 27 Corridor in the logistical Center of Florida between Orlando and Tampa. The industrial park is accessible market of 8.9 million people within 100 miles.
An interchange for the Central Floirda Parkway has been proposed on State Road 544 on the western end of the Haines City Industrial park. The Central Florida Parkway is a proposed toll road in Polk County, Florida. The proposed road is actually two separate roads—called “legs” by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The western segment would connect the Polk Parkway with State Road 60 between Bartow & Lake Wales. The eastern leg would start a few miles east of State Road 60 and run north, paralleling US 27 terminating at Interstate 4 north of Davenport. The most recent, and viable, proposed routing would connect the two “legs” together, with the legs meeting near the CSX Intermodal Facility south of Wahneta. The route is in its early stages and at the earliest, the road would not be completed before 2020.
