Kansas City, MO (April 7, 2022) — Newmark Zimmer and Scannell Properties are pleased to announce the first completed lease at Lee’s Summit Commerce Center. The lease, totaling 215,730 square feet, will take half of building A, a 430,000 square foot cross-dock facility, planned for completion later this year.
Lee’s Summit Commerce Center is the first bulk Class A speculative industrial development in Lee’s Summit, Missouri with modern industrial amenities such as a cross-dock operation and 32- foot to 36-foot clear heights. The three building, 781,000 square foot project is located on 75 acres just west of NE Douglas Street and NE Tudor Road. All three buildings are currently under construction and are expected for completion first quarter 2023.
“Lee’s Summit has always been a very desirable municipality and submarket for industrial users in Missouri,” said Scott Bluhm, Managing Director with Newmark Zimmer. “For the last decade or two, there has been a lack of Class A space accommodating middle to large sized users. Executing a substantial lease prior to the construction completion, emphasizes the need for this type of product in this part of the market.”
Developed by Scannell Properties, Lee’s Summit Commerce Center can accommodate tenants from 30,000 to 200,000 plus square feet. Building A is a 430,000 square foot cross-dock, building B is a 238,000 square foot single-load, and building C is a 113,000 square foot single-load. Both building B and C are planned to be completed early first quarter of 2023. Newmark Zimmer represented the landlord and CBRE represented the tenant in the lease transaction.
