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 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 consolidated three locations into the building, which Opus customized 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 has 24 dock doors, two drive-in doors and 43 vehicle parking stalls.

The project was completed in April 2022.​
