150 feet below the surface of Kansas City, Missouri, sits one of the most unique and innovative workspaces to offer growing companies in the world. The Hunt Midwest SubTropolis is a 55,000,000 sq. ft. manmade limestone cave that has been renovated into an underground business complex offering a safe and secure location for companies to grow.
SubTropolis currently houses more than 6 million sq. ft. of space for businesses, with room for up to 8 million more sq. ft. of storage available for expansion. Making it the largest underground storage facility in the Midwest.
Companies within SubTropolis include Adrian Steel, Knapheide Manufacturing Co., Ground Effects, Midway Ford, Auto Truck Group, AER Manufacturing, Caseco, Grupo Antolin, Leggett & Platt CVP, XPO Logistics and Clore Automotive to name a few. One of the latest to expand in SubTropolis is the data center company, LightEdge.
“We are 150 feet below the surface, in the middle of a limestone mine,” said Dan Kurtz, vice president of Business Development for LightEdge. “Limestone is six times stronger than concrete, so you can’t build a building on the surface that is as strong as this facility. The other thing that being underground does is it gives us protection from the elements.”
