The Opus Group has started construction on the second building within Swanwood Logistics Center in Ankeny, Iowa. Phase II will include a 296,300-square-foot speculative industrial building on 25 acres.
This development follows Opus’ build-to-suit project announced earlier this summer with Brown Warehouse Company within the same development.
This is Opus’ fifth building in the Ankeny submarket, following the successful completion of three phases at Corporate Woods Industrial Park, the last of which was completed in August 2020.
Once complete, the second building will feature 184 vehicle parking stalls, 24 dock doors (expandable to 48), two drive-in doors (expandable to four) and 32-foot clear height. It is located on the east side of Interstate 35 and near other industrial businesses. Phase II is scheduled for completion in fall 2022.
Opus is the developer, design-builder, and architect and structural engineer of record. Marcus Pitts and Austin Hedstrom of JLL are marketing the speculative building for lease.
