BARBERMURPHY offers a vast array of industrial sites and facilities to industrial users of all sizes and types.
Our street knowledge of potential industrial solutions is augmented by our active partnerships with utility providers, transportation infrastructure experts and others. We know each site’s existing development assets and capabilities, and we know its costs as well.
Our firm’s decades-long intricate working knowledge of the industrial sector is enhanced by our daily working relationships with leaders in distribution and logistics. The region is well regarded as a premier warehouse and distribution nucleus. We’ve brokered transactions for big box giants and for small manufacturing operations with the region we serve that is steeped in history as a manufacturing center.
The St. Louis industrial market is located within 500 miles of one-third of the U.S. population. Now more than ever, industrial warehouse and logistics operations are critical to meeting consumer demand. The region we serve is home to:
- America’s third-largest inland port known as the “Ag Coast of America”
- Six Class I railroads
- Multiple interstate routes – I-44, I-55, I-64, I-70 and I-57
- A job-ready workforce
- Some of the lowest power rates in the U.S. with high-quality distribution infrastructure in place
