CenterPoint KCS Intermodal Center: A Real Opportunity for South Kansas City

21 Jan 2016 12:46 PM | Vickie Wolgast (Administrator)

CenterPoint Properties and the Kansas City Southern Railway Company have come together to develop a 1,340-acre intermodal logistics center in South Kansas City, Missouri. So, why is everyone so excited about this project? One of the largest benefits can be summed up into one word – jobs.

“The Richards Gebaur Air Force Base was a huge contributor to the economy of South Jackson and Cass Counties,” says Steve Rinne, a business development officer for the EDC. “When the base closed, individuals, neighborhoods and surrounding cities really felt the effect. The kinds of jobs that will come as a result of this new development…. warehouse, manufacturing, engineering, and all the vendors who service them….is going to provide a huge job market for workers from around the region – and of all skill levels. This project could truly boost Kansas City’s economy in a way we’ve never seen before.”

Kansas City is considered #1 in rail and #3 in trucking nationwide, which makes our city the perfect hub for distribution. Centerpoint’s central location and proximity to numerous east-west and north-south highways and interstates means tenants can ship goods to 80% of the U.S. population within two days by truck, which means nothing but opportunity for Kansas City!
