AllianceFlorida at Cecil Commerce Center is a public-private partnership between Hillwood and the City of Jacksonville. The first class, master-planned, multimodal business park, is in Jacksonville at I-10 and SR-23.
In 2009, Hillwood won a competitive bid to become the Master Developer of the total 4,474-acre Cecil Commerce Center. The project is on a portion of the former BRAC closed Naval Air Station Cecil Field that is owned by the city. Hillwood made The Cecil Commerce Center project the third extension of its premier Alliance brand, reserved for large-scale, multimodal, public-private projects.
The Alliance projects are recognized for ideal locations and first-class development where innovative businesses thrive. The flagship of these projects was established in 1988; AllianceTexas has become an engine of growth for the North Texas economy and a diverse community. Propelled by the success of AllianceTexas, Hillwood was selected Master Developer and rebranded the former BRAC closed Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, CA, in 2002. The two projects together have had a significant economic impact on their respective communities and have created over 60,000 jobs. The latest addition to the brand, AllianceFlorida, is anticipated to be almost 34 million square feet with distribution, warehousing, manufacturing, assembly uses complemented by supporting mixed uses.
Hillwood opened an office/marketing center at AllianceFlorida at Cecil Commerce Center managed by Dan Tatsch, Senior Vice President of Hillwood.
