NAPLES, Florida - A large building located in the heart of Naple's ''central nervous system'' for contractors and designers has been sold to Grand Woodworking of Naples, Florida. The newly purchased building located on Trade Center Way is over 21,000 square feet which includes over 11,000 square feet of climate controlled manufacturing space. The current building configuration houses several large offices across two stories. According to Grand Woodworking a portion of the office space will be redesigned into a cutting edge custom furniture and hands-on display area to showcase the work of the company's wood artisans.

According to Mr. Mike Carr, Sr., the Regional Director of Southwest Florida for Coldwell Banker Commercial the building was not on the market when sold to Grand Woodworking. Mr. Carr weighed the needs of the woodworking firm and sourced a location to fit the client's needs. As the southern Florida real estate market has returned to life, the available inventory of prime industrial property in Naples became an impediment for Grand Woodworking. Working together with Coldwell Banker and Mr. Carr the firm navigated the current real estate landscape to arrive at the perfect solution for their manufacturing, office and showroom requirements.

Grand Woodworking expects to hire anywhere from two to ten additional employees during the ramp up of the new facilities, increasing employment in the greater Naples area.

According to Mr. Neil Heuer a co-founder of Grand Woodworking, ''The space will allow Grand Woodworking to continue with our exponential growth. With this new location and facility we will be able to stock additional species of wood, lumber, equipment and construction materials making our speed to market faster. We will also have more space to employ local skilled craftsmen to meet and exceed customers' deadlines.''
