This expansion, built on speculation, provides a solution for warehousing and distribution operations struggling to meet the current supply chain and speed-to-market demands created by today’s online shoppers.
With more than 7 million square feet of industrial space, SubTropolis offers benefits that beat traditional above-ground industrial buildings. Lower operations and leasing costs top the list, along with a naturally temperature-controlled climate, ideal for storing inventory with a limited lifespan or specific temperature needs.
SubTropolis delivers warm-shell warehousing with demisable space from 50,000 to 300,000 square feet and occupancy in 90 to 120 days. The short build-out period ensures that businesses experiencing rapid growth can scale operations to continue to meet consumer demand in a timely manner.
A substantial portion of SubTropolis’ footprint is currently occupied by e-commerce, archival and document storage, pharmaceutical and animal health facilities, and food distributors.
The complex’s location also adds value. Kansas City is the most centrally-located of major U.S. markets. The city is at the heart of a railway corridor reaching from coast to coast and Canada to Mexico. Kansas City International Airport moves more air cargo each year than any airport within a six-state region.
Tenants residing in SubTropolis reach 90 percent of the country with their products within two days via ground or air, resulting in reduced delivery costs. Combined with other features such as an on-site, low-latency fiber network and 24/7/365 armed security, the expanding footprint of SubTropolis is poised to support the future growth and business needs of industries focused on keeping up with today’s fast-paced economy.
