Master Planned Business Park
M+H Architects provided site master planning services for approximately 800 +/- acres immediately southeast of the existing KCI airport runways, referred to as KCI Intermodal BusinessCentre. We reviewed the goals, objectives, parameters and program requirements of the Master Plan with the developer. We also worked very closely with a local civil engineer to review available information on the surrounding properties to understand the opportunities and challenges presented by the existing infrastructure, vehicular accessibility, topographic and environmental conditions and storm water management requirements. The project will be split into a number of phases with the first phase focusing on maximizing the big-box (500,000 SF +/- in size) cross-dock potential of the property.
The first completed project in phase I is a 349,440 SF build-to-suit distribution center for Blount International, Inc.
