NAI Realvest Principal Robert Blackwell Achieves Elite Status with NAI Global

ORLANDO, FL – Robert Blackwell (top right photo), SIOR, principal at NAI Realvest has achieved the coveted Elite Status with NAI Global.  The award is given to NAI brokers who have closed a high level of commercial real estate transactions assigned among the 325 offices in the NAI Global worldwide system.

 Patrick Mahoney (middle left photo), president of NAI Realvest, said one of the transactions Blackwell closed was also one of the largest industrial lease deals in Central Florida last year. 

  Blackwell represented the tenant Pelliconi Group in a lease of an 87,000 square foot warehouse/manufacturing facility at Orlando Central Park South (lower right photo), where the landlord is Duke Realty.

 Pelliconi, based in Bologna Italy, is the largest bottle cap manufacturer in the world.  Rick Leighton with NAI Global in Princeton N.J. assigned the deal to Blackwell when Pelliconi identified Orlando as a potential location for its first U.S. cap manufacturing facility.

 Mahoney said another large transaction Blackwell closed in late 2010 also ranks as one of the largest industrial/flex deals of the year. 

ADT Security Services – a subsidiary of Tyco international – leased 47,000 square feet of flex space at Semoran CommerCenter on Shadowridge drive just north of Orlando International Airport. 

The landlord will build to suit over $1.5 million dollars of tenant improvements in one of the two new flex buildings leased at the center.

 “ADT chose this location because of its high parking ratio and the landlord’s ability to build out the space according to the tenant’s specific requirements,” Blackwell said.

 NAI Realvest is located at 2200 Lucien Way, Suite 350, Maitland, Fla.  For more information visit
