I-35 Logistics Park
Kessinger/Hunter represented Sun Life Financial on the purchase of an additional 134 acres at the I-35 Logistics Park at 155th & Old 56 Highway in Olathe, Kansas. I-35 Logistics Park totals 330± acres ready for 4.7 million SF of Class A distribution space. Recent leases of 474,000 SF to S&S Activewear and 158,517 SF to 1A Auto brings Building B to 100% occupancy.
With Building B fully leased, Kessinger/Hunter evaluates further development of the park, including Building C, totaling 918,045 SF. Once the park is fully built out, it will host six state-of-the-art bulk facilities totaling more than 4.7 million square feet.
Building B, at the time of its development, was the largest building ever built on a speculative basis in the Kansas City area. Only 2.5 miles from the city's new 159th & Lone Elm interchange and ten miles from the new 1,000-acre Burlington Northern Intermodal Center in Edgerton, I-35 Logistics Park serves as a premier location for large-scale, efficient distribution. The facilities in I-35 Logistics Park are Class A state-of-the-art and LEED certified to the silver level. Building B features an ESFR sprinkler system, 168 dock-high doors on a pass-through facility, and up to 270 trailer parking spots. Future facility plans feature LEED certification to the silver level, an ESFR sprinkler system, and additional built-to-suit features.
“We are thrilled to have an 800,000-plus-SF warehouse coming to Olathe, but by such a quality developer and placed in such a prime location,” said Olathe Mayor Michael Copeland. “It’s a testament to their optimism about the economy and their confidence in Olathe and Kansas City that Kessinger/Hunter and Sun Life Financial are investing so significantly in our community."
