The Opus Group is a “family of commercial real estate development, construction and design companies” that is taking on the project in the city of Union, Ohio. The project, called the “Crossroads Logistics Park,” will be centered near the airport in Dayton, where Opus and other companies have been active recently, according to Biz Journal.
Also backing the project is Balboa Real Estate Partners, an investment management firm. President of the firm Tom Calahan said that the “speculative building is designed to meet the needs of small and mid-sized companies in the logistics and advanced manufacturing sectors.”
The facility will reportedly feature 32-foot clear heights, 20 dock doors, 60-foot staging bays and 57 trailer stalls with the intention of supporting inventory for industrial sites near the airport.
To support the project, the city of Union will be investing in roadway, water and sewer extensions, according to the outlet.
"This new building will help the Dayton region meet the demand for modern, mid-sized, rear-loading buildings in the Dayton market,” Opus Senior Manager Todd Davis said. “The building’s design will help attract a wide range of end users that will help the region remain competitive.”
According to Bizz Journal, the new building will work in conjunction with another warehouse planned in the nearby city of Vandalia, which on January 6 approved a conditional use permit for a 728,000-square-foot facility with 162 loading docs, 199 trailer spaces and 594 parking spaces.
