Brown Warehouse Company Enlists Opus for Build-to-Suit Logistics Center North of Des Moines

Planning for growth and serving more clients and with a short timeline, Brown Warehouse Company has enlisted Opus to develop, design and construct a build-to-suit logistics center. The Iowa-based, full-service provider of truck leasing, contract maintenance and logistics services will be consolidating three current locations into the building, which Opus is customizing to meet the company's specific needs for operational efficiency.

The 277,930-square-foot project is in Swanwood Logistics Center in Ankeny, Iowa, a rapidly-expanding northern suburb of Des Moines. Swanwood offers easy access and visibility to I-35. The build-to-suit building will have 24 dock doors, two drive-in doors and 43 vehicle parking stalls.

The project is scheduled to be complete by April 2022.​
