The Opus Group began construction on a 13.5-acre industrial development in Earth City, Missouri. Johnstone Supply, a provider in the HVACR industry, will occupy 4 acres with its new 45,000-square-foot headquarters and distribution center.
Opus will also construct an 111,000-square-foot speculative industrial development on the remaining 9.5 acres.
Upon opening of the new headquarters and distribution center, Johnstone Supply will occupy 10,000 square feet for the company’s headquarters, which will include a training room and product showroom. Centralizing these facilities under one roof allows Johnstone Supply to further establish its presence in the St. Louis area.
The 111,000-square-foot speculative industrial development will be able to accommodate multiple tenants, offering 139 parking stalls, 32-foot clear height, 27 dock positions, including two drive-in positions, and clerestory windows. With immediate access to Interstate 70 and directly off of state Route 141, this project offers accessibility and external visibility.
Construction on both buildings begins this month. The Johnstone Supply facility is slated for completion in early 2021 and the speculative industrial building is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2021.
Opus is the developer, design-builder, and architect and engineer of record. Jake Corrigan and Vince Bajardi with Sansone Group will be marketing the project for lease.
