This is what we need. Thank goodness it's not another warehouse or distribution center.

COOL! Thanks for posting, Mark. It's what I've been saying all along about Polk County; they have been actively recruiting high quality businesses with higher paying jobs. This is great for the area. I expect more to come.

"The company, which also manages drug benefit programs for health plans, will be hiring a mix of pharmacists, technicians, information technology and administrative staff for the Lakeland site"

Notice the location also in the image attached to the article. Right off I-4 and the the Polk Parkway. I see a lot of the future companies setting up shop along the stretch of I-4 around both ends of where the polk parkway intersect with I-4.



Also in the below image in section 571, is slated to become "The Auburndale Commerce Center", which will be mixed use.

Sections 573 and 574 is what I believe will become the "Polk Commerce Center", which will be mixed use as well with Commercial, Retail, and Residential.

Section 136 is where the USF campus is is going to be built.

They have already started building the 4 lane road going from Pace Road (section 573), all the way to the polk parkway and then they will build a new on\off ramp there as well.

Hi Guys!
Just made it in to Lakeland over this past weekend...good to finally be here and settling in! It was good to hear about new growth coming! Don't have any of the details personally, but I think a company called GTECH may be coming to Lakeland sometime next year as well. May be too early to get any hard facts.

By the way...thanks again for all the helpful posts about Lakeland! Now that I am finally here, you have no idea how much the previous knowledge has helped us!
