Opus Breaks Ground on 13.5-Acre Industrial Development in Earth City, Missouri
EARTH CITY, MO. — The Opus Group has broken ground on a 13.5-acre industrial development in Earth City, about 20 miles northwest of St. Louis. Johnstone Supply, a wholesale distributor of HVAC equipment, will occupy four acres with a new 45,000-square-foot headquarters and distribution center. Opus will also construct an 111,000-square-foot speculative industrial building on the remaining 9.5 acres. Johnstone’s space will include a training room and product showroom. The spec building will feature 139 car parking stalls, 27 dock positions and a clear height of 32 feet. Construction on both buildings is slated to begin this month with completion scheduled for spring 2021. Opus is the developer, design-builder, architect and engineer. Jake Corrigan and Vince Bajardi of Sansone Group will market the project for lease.
