Opus Leases Up Phase 2 of Des Moines Industrial Park

The Opus Group has completed leasing up Corporate Woods II, a 200,000-square-foot, speculative bulk industrial development in the Des Moines suburb of Ankeny, IA. Carroll Tire Company, a tire wholesaler company, occupies 73,000 square feet; Alfa Laval, a leader within the technological area of heat transfer, will occupy 36,000 square feet; and Berlin Packaging, a packaging supplier, will occupy 73,000 square feet. Additionally, Harrell’s Car Wash Systems will occupy 18,000 square feet.

“This project is a testament to Opus’ strong, fully-integrated platform, as well as our continued commitment and positive relationships within the rapidly-expanding Des Moines industrial market and brokerage community,” said Opus’ Jason Conway. “We look forward to carrying this momentum with us as we begin construction on the final phase of the park.”

JLL arranged all four leases. Opus will begin work on the master-planned Corporate Woods Industrial Park’s third and final phase this fall.

Connect Chicago Fall 2019 will take place Oct. 29 in Chicago. For more information, or to register, click here.
