Construction starts for new Goodwill Manasota headquarters

October 1, 2013

Goodwill, NDC Construction president bought 9.2-acre site for $600,000

MANATEE — Drivers passing by U.S. 301 and 51st Avenue East will see a new landscape behind the Walmart Supercenter as trees are cleared to make way for a new Goodwill Manasota headquarters.

NDC Construction has put up its signs on the 9.2-acre site where tree-clearing has started. The trees are being cleared at 2705 51st Ave. E. to prepare for construction of Manasota Goodwill’s new headquarters. Its current headquarters is at 7501 15th St. E in Tallevast.

Manasota Goodwill and NDC Construction President Ron Allen purchased the site in July for $600,000 under the business name U.S. 301/51st Ave E LLLP from 2705 51st Avenue East LLC, a company registered to Deborah Johnson and Lucia Howell of Sarasota, according to land and business records.

The 27,000-square-foot building designed by Fawley Bryant Architects in Bradenton is expected to consolidate administrative, service and educational operations for 50 or 60 employees working throughout the region. Another 50 to 60 people will be working in a 35,866-square-foot retail store and drive-through donation center attached to the administrative complex.

The headquarters is expected to open in 2014.

The nonprofit has a $50 million operating budget and $20 million payroll to serve Manatee, Sarasota, DeSoto and Hardee counties, according to Goodwill Manasota CEO Bob Rosinsky. The nonprofit takes the revenue from selling donated goods to provide jobs and job training.

The new headquarters is expected to bring 100 to 120 construction jobs to the Manatee County site.
