The Platte County Economic Development Council has issued a press release reporting that Hunt Midwest has assembled about 3300 acres of land directly north of KCI and south of State Route 92 for development of a logistics park. It appears Hunt Midwest is attempting to get additional land to the west where I-29 and Hwy. 92 meet near Platte City.

Hunt Midwest Assembles 3,300 Acres in Prime Location Adjacent to Kansas City International Airport
Hunt Midwest recently closed on the acquisition of over 1,300 acres located adjacent to the Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City, Missouri. The property is contiguous with roughly 2,000 acres already owned by Hunt Midwest. Its addition results in nearly 3,300 acres under a single ownership for development of the largest logistics park in the State of Missouri.

The recently dubbed KCI 29 Logistics Park, will support up to 18 million square feet of Class A logistics and manufacturing space along with 20 plus acres of commercial mixed-use. It has the potential to attract over 8,000 employees with an overall capital investment of nearly $1.3 billion over the next decade. Its highly accessible location provides immediate access to KCI Air Cargo operations and Interstates 29 and 435 via the Mexico City Interchange. Area infrastructure is robust with available onsite transmission level power, a transmission waterline, and a wastewater treatment plant.

In addition to boosting air cargo, would be good to score some (clean) manufacturing as they tend to bring higher paying jobs than warehouse jobs. And it appears to be KCMO city proper too.

Per the KCMO de-annexation thread, an example why not to in the long run. Instead of allocating unused land for inefficient/high maintenance large swaths of single family homes, use for functions like warehouse, manufacturing, data centers, solar/wind farms, etc. and pursue denser residential mixed use infill within existing sprawl.

Good lord that is a huge area. Seems perfect for such a development. Hopefully the massive solar farm gets built.

Lots of room to do just about anything in the Northland. Plus as you drive around a lot of for sale signs on vacant land. Going to be a very busy and interesting next 10yrs up here

If KCMO keeps annexing in Northern Platte County the SE part of Nebraska will actually be closer to these Northern Parts of the City then it will be from the Northern KCMO to Southern KCMO, just mindboggling

^It looks to be existing KCMO city proper, or mostly.

can't help but think the land would be better used for data centers and industrial. airport owns it so the revenue would go to maintenance and lowering fees

Why not both? Put the solar panels on the roofs of the boxes.

Because that isn't what they are proposing

More details on what is planned. This is being positioned for the likes of a Tesla or Intel mega-facility.

For now, Hunt Midwest Senior Vice President of Industrial Real Estate Mike Bell says they’ll start small, developing part of the site and improving local roads.

“So it’ll be both,” Bell said. “We’ll do spec development for industrial and we’ll also work with the local economic development authorities and try to attract large manufacturers here to Kansas City.”

Some good details on this project’s incentives and status in the KCBJ today
Hunt Midwest is underway on design work for the park's roadway and utility extensions. Once complete, those extensions could begin construction in 2023, according to Port KC materials.
