KANSAS CITY, MO. — Kansas City-based developer Hunt Midwest has promoted two members of its management team and hired three new employees. The move is in effort “to support the volume of development projects underway and in the pipeline,” according to a release from the company. Earlier this year, Hunt Midwest completed construction of 400,000 square feet of speculative Class A industrial space at SubTropolis, the world’s largest underground business complex.
