The development is planned to include offices, residential apartments, a hotel, retail and parking.

CEMEX is proud to supply high-quality materials from our strong Florida network that consists of two active cement plants, five distribution terminals, more than 20 aggregates facilities and nearly 80 ready-mix plants.”
