After news that Amazon would occupy all 822,104 square feet of Inland Port XIV (pictured above), NorthPoint Development is kicking off 1.6 million square feet worth of new spec construction at Logistics Park Kansas City.

With the announcement last week that Amazon will soon occupy the entirety of Kansas City’s largest industrial spec building – the 822,104-square-foot Inland Port XIV at Logistics Park Kansas City – another new wave of industrial projects are kicking off. NorthPoint Development is moving forward with the construction of 1.6 million square feet worth of new spec industrial space at Logistics Park Kansas City. Inland Ports XXXII will consist of a 764,785-square-foot building and another 927,112-square-foot building.

NorthPoint says it’s riding the wave of tenant demand and new tenant interest. In fact, this summer roughly 2 million square feet of speculative construction will be delivered. These two additional buildings are expected to be delivered in the summer or fall of 2016. Once complete, there will be approximately 6.5 million square feet of new buildings at Logistics Park, supporting total future build-out capacity of 17 million square feet.

“The addition of these two speculative buildings – one being the largest ever built at 927,112 square feet – indicates that there is a very strong demand to locate at LPKC,” said City of Edgerton Mayor Donald Roberts. “Buildings of this size will attract the caliber of tenants that LPKC was designed for, while positively impacting our community with possible new jobs and other new opportunities.”
