Commerce & Industrial Parks
Lake County is home to a multitude of strategically located commerce and industrial parks. With prime access, low costs and a variety of improved and vacant property types, Lake County is sure to have a location perfectly suited to a business’s needs.
Provided below is a brief summary of some of Lake County’s more prominent commerce and industrial parks.
Christopher C. Ford Commerce Park
The Christopher C. Ford Commerce Park is strategically located on U.S. Highway 27 at the crossroads of State Road 19 and the Florida Turnpike. The County purchased the land for the industrial park in the 1980s following catastrophic freezes, which virtually wiped out the citrus industry in the area. The intent of the County land purchase was to develop an industrial park which would enable Lake County to diversify the economy and create quality jobs. Companies such as Carroll Fulmer Trucking, Peri Formworks, Dunkin Donuts Distribution, Niagara Water Bottling Company, Domino’s Distribution, and Metals USA have realized the benefits of the strategic location of the Park.
Clermont Commons is located on Mohawk Road, just north of State Road 50. Existing buildings from 1,000 to 60,000 square feet are available. The site is zoned M-1 with all utilities installed, including natural gas. All water retention is accommodated in common areas, allowing for 100 percent usage of each lot.

Amidst the sparkling Harris Chain of Lakes, the award-winning, 90-acre Eustis Commerce Park resembles a stunning wildlife preserve with a setting which is more park than commerce.
