Former Flea Market to Operate as Industrial Space at 12691 N.W. 42nd Avenue, Opa-Locka, Florida

The former site of the Opa-Locka Hialeah Flea Market will soon find new life as a $90 million industrial center. Per the South Florida Business Journal, the facility will comprise close to 740,000 square feet of new construction spread across six low-rise buildings.

Plans call for 765 parking spots, which is expected to accommodate the 700-plus employees that could work there. Ten percent of the facility will operate as office space and showrooms. The venture is part of an emerging trend of flea markets making way for other commercial ventures.

The venture will replace a flea market which has relocated.

Just recently, sources reported that Big Apple Shopping Bazaar in Palm Beach County will be replaced with a convenience store/gas station––along with a 140,000-square-foot storage facility.

Gramercy Property Trust is the Opa-Locka complex’s developer. It purchased the 43-acre build site in July 2017. Representatives told Local 10 that the new complex will offer “a very attractive marketing experiment for the consumer.”

The venture will rest on a build site measuring more than 40 acres.

The Opa-Locka Hialeah Flea Market has called South Florida home for more than 20 years. The new venture’s address is 12691 N.W. 42nd Avenue, Opa-Locka, Florida, 33054, in Miami-Dade County. It’s north of Florida State Road 924.
