New Industrial Building Nears Completion at Former Federal Facility

The transformation of the former Bannister Federal Complex at 95th and Troost is continuing in exciting fashion! NorthPoint Development is nearing completion of the first new industrial building in the Blue River Commerce Center located on the 225-acre site that was formerly the home to the Federal Government’s Kansas City Plant since World War II.


The new 243, 353 square foot warehouse and distribution building will be completed at the end of May, and leasing activity is well underway. When completed, the Blue River Commerce Center is projected to include 2.6 million square feet of modern industrial, warehouse and distribution buildings, representing the most significant industrial development in South Kansas City in many decades.

2nd Building to Begin Soon at Blue River Commerce Center

As the City building permit process nears completion, NorthPoint Development is targeting late April to break ground on the second warehouse and distribution building in the Blue River Commerce Center.

At 436,121 square feet, NorthPoint’s Building II at Blue River Commerce Center will be almost twice the size of the initial Building 1 nearing completion. Combined, these two new building will bring almost 680,000 square feet of modern Class A industrial space to South Kansas City. And with this growth of new industrial space comes new permanent jobs for South Kansas City!
