O’FALLON – A nationally recognized warehouse/distribution developer is beginning phase one of St. Clair County, Illinois’ very first industrial park.
TriStar Companies – known for its development of the 2,300-acre Gateway Commerce Center in Madison County (Edwardsville and Pontoon Beach), is embarking on a precedent-setting development in a county known largely for office, retail and commercial. TriStar Vice President of Development Bobby Klucker said the 200-acre park, called Mid America Commerce Center, is located just south of Interstate 64, east of Illinois Route 158 and north of Scott Air Force Base. The park represents an opportunity for tenants of build-to-suit buildings ranging from 25,000 square feet to 710,000 square feet of warehouse/distribution space.
Until now, according to Steve Zuber, principal for commercial and industrial brokerage firm BARBERMURPHY, there has been a hole in the market on the Illinois side of the St. Louis MSA for 50,000-square-foot to 150,000-square-foot users. “Mid America Commerce Center offers a 10-year (property) tax abatement and the benefits of the State of Illinois’ Mid-America Enterprise Zone. We’re excited to represent TriStar on this development.”
