Robb & Stucky breaks ground on new HQ/distribution center

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Luxury home furnishings retailer Robb & Stucky broke ground Wednesday on a new corporate headquarters and distribution center here.

The two-story 125,000-square-foot building on Lee Road in Fort Myers, Fla., will include 10,000 square feet of of offices and 115,000 square feet of warehouse to better accommodate the Florida retailers growth “and better support its showrooms in Fort Myers, Naples, Sarasota, Coral Gables and soon-to-open Boca Raton,” the retailer said in a release.

The building will feature tilt-up concrete construction, a dual tower entry with columns, specialty furniture repair workshops and 34 truck bays. The owned complex will replace the retailers current leased 55,000-square-foot offices and warehouse, which it has outgrown, said Eric Chien, vice president and chief financial officer of the Fort Myers, Fla.-based retailer.

In a statement, Chien said the new facility “has been a part of our business plan for quite some time,” and the distribution center “will further support our commitment to steady growth throughout the state of Florida.”

It's slated to open late winter 2018.
