“Cool” Missouri Company Featured on NBC’s Today Show

December, 2016

The unique SubTropolis development was recently featured on NBC's Today Show.

Television viewers nationwide got a look at one of Missouri’s innovative companies with a recent Today Show on NBC.

The popular program examined Hunt Midwest’s SubTropolis, which has carved nearly 60-million square feet of commercial space underground in Clay County.

But far from a mere subterranean storage or manufacturing business, SubTropolis is really a technology center with a unique design.

Built in a former limestone mine, SubTropolis is the world's largest underground business complex. With a naturally maintained temperature of 65 degrees, it is a perfect spot for tech companies looking to keep their technology cool with a minimum of cost.

The location is also home to archive collections, including stamps stored on site for the U.S. Postal Service and film reels for some of Hollywood’s largest production companies. SubTropolis also houses portions of Automotive Alley, several auto suppliers for the Ford Transit van and the Ford F-150.
