The Korte Company will begin construction on a 100,000-square-foot design-build warehouse facility within America’s Central Port, located in Madison, just five miles north of downtown St. Louis.
The tilt-up structure, located at the region’s only full-service, public intermodal port, will include warehouse and office space for a private tenant.
America’s Central Port’s business and industrial park currently contains over 1.7 million square feet of rail-served warehouse space, and approximately 70,000 square feet of office space with access to the Mississippi River, four interstate highways and six Class I railroads.
The new development is the first phase of an industrial park expansion project at the port that calls for up to 1 million square feet of new rail-served warehousing space.
America’s Central Port continues to expand economic growth for the region. With access to rail, water and trucking transportation options, the Port offers an ever growing number of benefits and services to not only the St. Louis Metro area, but the entire Midwestern Region.
“We are pleased to be partnered with America’s Central Port, whose positive economic impact continues to benefit the entire area,” said Todd Korte, president and CEO of The Korte Company.
The Korte Company, founded in 1958, is headquartered in St. Louis, with offices in Highland, Ill.; Norman, Okla.; and, Las Vegas. The company manages, on average, an excess of $200 million in annual construction volume.
The Korte Company’s project expertise includes building for federal, state and local government agencies as well as the design and construction of healthcare facilities, medical office buildings, warehouse/distribution centers, religious facilities, commercial buildings, schools, recreation centers and office complexes.
