Hunt Midwest of Clay County has assembled 3,300 acres adjacent to the Kansas City International Airport, which will support up to 18 million square feet of Class A logistics and manufacturing space and more than 8,000 employees.
At completion, the recently dubbed KCI 29 Logistics Park will be the largest logistics park in Missouri, with a capital investment of nearly $1.3 billion over the next decade. The property is contiguous with roughly 2,000 acres already owned by Hunt Midwest.
“With Hunt Midwest’s existing land holdings in the area, we saw this acquisition as a good strategic move to augment the unprecedented industrial growth that Kansas City is experiencing,” said Ora Reynolds, Hunt Midwest’s President & CEO. “Hunt Midwest will leverage its real estate development expertise, resources and relationships to offer users optionality for both warehousing and manufacturing. Disruptions in the global supply chains have driven the need to store more inventory closer to the end consumer and to reshore manufacturing back to the United States. We hope to capitalize upon these demand drivers with some big ‘wins’ right here in Kansas City.”
