Trammell Crow Company (TCC), one of the nation’s largest commercial real estate developers and investors, along with capital partner Clarion Partners, LLC, announces that it has broken ground on two large, Class A warehouse and distribution facilities within the KCI Intermodal BusinessCentre in Kansas City, Missouri. Located adjacent to the Kansas City International Airport, LogisticsCentre VII (LC7) and LogisticsCentre VIII (LC8) will total 676,000 square feet when the buildings are delivered in 4Q 2021.

“The KCI Intermodal BusinessCentre has been an incredibly important project for Platte County since TCC and Clarion started construction in 2011. We are pleased to continue delivering much-needed Class A industrial space to the market and were honored to have been recognized by the Platte County Economic Development Council with the 2020 Business Excellence Award for our work on this development,” said Tom Thornton, a Senior Vice President with TCC’s Midwest Business Unit. “We remain committed to the BusinessCentre and to growing Kansas City’s logistics market and expanding the KCI/Northland submarket specifically.” 

LC7 is located at 10410 NW Transcon Drive and is designed as a multi-tenant building that will include 216,320 square feet and comprise a structural steel frame, concrete tilt-up walls, a seven-inch thick reinforced concrete floor, 32-foot clear heights, 48 dock positions, and parking stalls for 62 trailers and 225 cars. Additional features include four private entrances for up to four tenants and two drive-up ramp dock doors for vehicle access into the building.

LC8 is located at 9900 NW Global Avenue and will include 459,680 square feet of multi-tenant space with a structural steel frame, concrete tilt-up walls, a seven-inch thick reinforced concrete floor, 36-foot clear heights, 88 dock doors, and parking for 110 trailers and 366 cars. LC8 will offer three private entrances for up to three tenants and four drive-up ramp dock doors for vehicle access into the building.

Both buildings are being built to achieve LEED Certification. Sustainable design elements at each facility include white TPO roofing, concrete paving, native landscaping, low emitting materials and LED lighting.

M + H Architects is the project architect and Stock & Associates is the civil engineer for both buildings. Kadean Construction is acting as the project’s general contractor and has previously served as the GC for LogisticsCentre II, III, IV and V and is currently in the process of completing LogisticsCentre VI.

The KCI Intermodal Business Center is a master-planned business park developed by TCC and Clarion Partners that spans 687 acres. The park currently includes six fully built facilities, including warehouse/distribution space, logistics space, office space, flex space and service centers, light manufacturing facilities, and air cargo facilities. Plans call for an additional 1.2 million square feet of space to be developed across three buildings after LC7 and LC8 are complete. The site is located at the crossroads of I-29 and I-435 and offers access to the interstate highway system via a fully directional interchange at NW 112th Street.
