The 100,000-square-foot warehouse facility will include warehouse and office space for a private tenant.
MADISON — The Korte Co. will begin construction on a 100,000-square-foot warehouse facility within America’s Central Port.
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.
The port’s business and industrial park contains more than 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. This new development is the first phase of an industrial park expansion project that calls for up to 1 million square feet of new rail-served warehousing space.
“We are pleased to be partnered with America’s Central Port, whose positive economic impact continues to benefit the entire area,” the Korte Company President and CEO Todd Korte said.
The company, founded in 1958, is headquartered in St. Louis with offices in Highland; Norman, Okla.; and Las Vegas. The company manages approximately $200 million in annual construction volume.
The company’s expertise includes building for federal, state and local government agencies as well as the design and construction of health care facilities, medical office buildings, warehouse and distribution centers, religious facilities, commercial buildings, schools, recreation centers and office complexes.
