The Opus Group® Breaks Ground on Airport Corporate Center, a Two-Building Speculative Industrial Development in Romulus, Mich.

The Opus Group (Opus) today announced the start of construction on Airport Corporate Center, a two-building speculative industrial development in Romulus, Mich., which is 16 miles west of Detroit. The two buildings at 33100 and 33200 Smith Road will total more than 270,000 square feet and are being marketed for warehouse and distribution tenants between 40,000 and 270,000 square feet.

Situated less than a mile from Interstate 94, Airport Corporate Center offers immediate access via a full interchange. The 22.7-acre site is on the prominent corner of Smith Road and Vining Road, less than three miles north of the Detroit Metro Wayne County Airport. It is in close proximity to restaurants, hotels, gas stations and many corporate users. 

“We are pleased to bring this modern industrial development to the City of Romulus," said Mike Robinson, senior director of real estate development at Opus. “Airport Corporate Center will support economic vitality through employment and expansion of the local tax base. Building tenants will benefit from superior interstate access and logistical efficiencies, including modern clear heights and generous parking for employees and trailers."

Building A is 100,456 square feet with 32-foot clear height, 12 dock doors, 91 auto parking stalls and 13 trailer parking stalls. Building B is 170,088 square feet with 32-foot clear height, 22 dock doors, 115 auto parking stalls and 28 trailer parking stalls.

Both buildings will be complete and ready for occupancy in October 2023.

Opus is the developer, design-builder, and architect and structural engineer of record on the project. Sean Cavanaugh and Dave MacDonald at JLL are marketing the space for lease. Construction financing is being provided by Associated Bank.
