ONCE KING, AGRICULTURE MAKING COMEBACK ON TREASURE COAST

Agriculture has been a prime driver for the Treasure Coast economy for most of its modern history. More than a century ago, pineapples were the top crop. Pineapples were eventually replaced by other crops, particularly citrus, which along with cattle ranching continued to dominate the economic landscape until air conditioning and interstate highways helped boost tourism and industries tied to exponential population growth, including home construction.

Now, industries tied to healthcare and retail businesses are the biggest employers, each with about 26,000 workers in Indian River and St. Lucie counties, and retail is tops in annual revenue at about $6.83 billion, according to data compiled by FPL. Read more...

THE PONGAMIA PROSPECT

Citrus, once the undisputed king of Florida agriculture, was described recently by an official of the state Department of Citrus as “about to fall off the cliff.”

What was once a $9 billion industry, Florida’s second-most important after tourism, is in ruins. Ninety percent of the state’s groves have been infected with bacteria. In 2004 there were 7,000 groves in Florida. Today, 5,000 of those operations have disappeared, the land fallow and abandoned.

They are sometimes referred to as “ghost groves.” Read more...

ENTREPRENEURS LEARN THE ABCs OF PROBLEM SOLVING

For most people the world of entrepreneurship, new technologies and innovation exists only in Silicon Valley, world renowned research institutions or at least in the big city — right? At its core, entrepreneurship is about problem-solving. It is about creating and developing simple solutions for people’s everyday problems. One does not have to create the world’s next greatest idea to find or realize success as an inventor or entrepreneur. It is about simple solutions to everyday problems.

Everyone, no matter the geographic location, would welcome these solutions to their problems. Entrepreneurial opportunities are swirling around each of us every day, but we must be listening for the problems. Read more...

Massive residential, retail complex could transform downtown Fort Pierce

The 7.2 acres between Indian River Drive and Second Street in downtown Fort Pierce that formerly housed the H.D. King electric plant could be transformed into an $85 million development featuring a hotel, townhomes, condominiums, retail and office space.

The Fort Pierce City Commission in June selected Audubon Development as master developer of a plan called King’s Landing. The centerpiece would be a 100-125-room hotel, surrounded by upscale townhomes and 60 condominiums, and apartments fronting onto the Indian River Lagoon. Forty thousand square feet of retail, 14,000 square feet of restaurant and office space will complete King’s Landing. Read more...

SBA loan can help finance real estate purchase

Are you looking to finance a commercial real estate or industrial equipment purchase for your growing small business?

This particular loan program provides small business owners the advantage of a lower equity injection, allowing them to preserve more of their existing working capital. Read more...
