Meridian Design Build has begun construction on a 674,000 square foot speculative industrial building for Exeter Property Group.

The new facility will be located on a 135 acre parcel within Gateway Commerce Center in Edwardsville Illinois, in the St. Louis suburban area. JRA Architecture will be providing design services. Besides, Stock & Associates Consulting Engineers will complete the civil engineering work.

The multi tenant building will feature 36 foot clear heights. The asset will accommodate up to 132 loading docks, four drive in doors, 398 auto parking stalls and 171 exterior trailer stalls. Also, Meridian will do park infrastructure improvements as a part of the project.

Gateway Commerce Center is located in the thriving Metro East submarket at the intersection of interstates 270 and 255. The facility has seen significant development activity last year, one of the most recent projects being PCCP and TriStar’s $115 million warehouse occupied by World Wide Technology. Other major tenants at the 2,300 acre industrial park are P&G, Unilever, Amazon, Geodis Logistics and Hershey.
