Martinrea International, one of the largest global Tier-1 auto-parts suppliers, has signed a long-term, build-to-suit lease to occupy a 275,560-square-foot building that is expected to be completed by early 2015. The industrial facility, which is situated on 15.22 acres, will be located at 5233 NW 41st Street in the Riverside Horizons Business Park in Riverside, Mo.
Erik Murray and Nathan Anderson with Lee & Associates Kansas City negotiated the long-term lease that is expected to create 290 new jobs.
The industrial building, which is being developed by the Tutera Group in conjunction with Crossland Construction and Davidson Architecture & Engineering, will supply components to General Motors’ Fairfax plant for the new Chevy Malibu. Lee & Associates, the development team and representatives from the Kansas City Area Development Council visited Martinrea’s Canadian plants and headquarters earlier this year to help secure this landmark project for the Kansas City region.
