Sunroad Enterprises announced today that leasing has commenced in the Sunroad International Flower Market located at 5858 Dryden Place in Carlsbad.  Interior improvements are currently underway with the grand opening scheduled for March of this year. When complete, the project will provide a new home for tenants of the former Carlsbad Floral Trade Center, which is being redeveloped into office space.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to become the center of Carlsbad’s flower trade.” said Dan Feldman, a principal with Sunroad Enterprises. “This project is an excellent example of an adaptive re-use for an industrial property and a true testament to the local market knowledge and creativity of our brokerage team. We consider the Flower Market to be an important member of the community, which provides a diverse range of flowers into everyday life for all San Diegans.  Sunroad is committed to making this the most successful Flower Market in San Diego and continuing our partnership with quality tenants.”

The CBRE Carlsbad team of Roger Carlson, Lannie Allee and Greg Lewis represented Sunroad Enterprises and several new tenants including Mellano & Company, Holland Flower, Floral Supply Syndicate, Corina’s Wholesale and Ramirez Wholesale.

“This new facility will allow the floral industry to continue to thrive in North County,” said Mike Mellano, CEO of Mellano & Company. “Sunroad International Flower Market offers both a great place to do business and a welcome level of certainty to the local flower industry.”  Mike Mellano and Leo Gordillo also from Mellano & Company provided the project much needed guidance throughout the process.
