Opus to Design and Construct Speculative Industrial Building in Active Des Moines Market

Opus is designing and constructing the first of two identical 195,500-square-foot speculative industrial buildings in Bondurant, Iowa, nearly 14 miles northeast of Des Moines.

Located adjacent to Interstate 80 on U.S. Highway 65, Commerce Crossings will have great interstate access and visibility. The development is situated near two Amazon facilities in an active and growing Midwest market that has minimal industrial space available.

The building will have modern building features, including:  

  • 28-foot clear height
  • 16 drive-in doors
  • 18 dock doors
  • 165 vehicle parking stalls

The building will have an eye-catching exterior with plenty of windows, including clerestory windows at the entrances.

Signature Commercial Real Estate, Commerce Crossings' developer, selected Opus due to its familiarity with the product type and market, significant cost savings on design and the ability to compress schedules for early delivery.

The first building is scheduled to be completed in November 2021. In addition to this building, Signature Commercial Real Estate has plans for an identical speculative development adjacent to this one.​
