Marijuana distributor renovates Mach III

Many construction projects all across Marion County are in full swing, with a marijuana distributor launching a $20 million renovation of the old Mach III, while the old Kmart Distribution Center sold for $126.5 million.

Also, a hearing about plans for a large residential development near SummerGlen was pushed a second time to later in the year so the developer can work with Marion County engineers to resolve traffic issues along County Road 484 near the Interstate 75 interchange.

Kevin Sheilley, president and CEO of the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP), said the business boom is simply due to “location, location, location” of Ocala and Marion County in the state.
