Developer Sells Home Depot Distribution Center in MO

Stan Johnson Company (SJC) recently completed the sale of a single-tenant industrial warehouse and distribution center leased to Home Depot. The property, located at 5701 U.S. Hwy. 54 East in Mexico, MO, totals approximately 310,000 square feet.

The seller, a Midwest-based developer, was represented by SJC’s Jonathan Ameen and Brad Pepin. A private investor from New York purchased the asset for an undisclosed price.

“Industrial warehouse and distribution properties are extremely attractive in today’s environment, especially when backed by an investment grade tenant,” said Ameen. “This mission-critical property generated significant interest and ultimately closed at a highly competitive market-driven price.”

The property is situated on approximately 36 acres within an Opportunity Zone. The facility was originally constructed in 1985 with renovations in both 1995 and 2020. The warehouse is adjacent to another Home Depot facility which shares a joint inventory system.
