Work begins on 126,000-square-foot facility at America’s Central Port

The Korte Company will begin construction on a 126,000-square-foot Design-Build warehouse facility within America’s Central Port, located in Madison, Illinois, just five miles north of downtown St. Louis. The Tilt-Up structure, located at the region’s only full-service, public multi-modal port, will include warehouse and office space for a private tenant.

America’s Central Port’s business and industrial park currently contains more than 1.7 million square feet of rail-served warehouse space and about 70,000 square feet of office space with access to the Mississippi River, four interstate highways and six Class I railroads. This new development is the first phase of an industrial park expansion project at the Port that calls for up to 1 million square feet of new, rail-served warehousing space.

America’s Central Port continues to expand economic growth for the region. With access to rail, water and trucking transportation options, the Port offers an ever growing number of benefits and services to not only the St. Louis Metro area, but the entire Midwestern Region.

Todd Korte, President and CEO of The Korte Company, said “We are pleased to be partnered with America’s Central Port, whose positive economic impact continues to benefit the entire area.”
