(St. Louis, Mo. – June 28, 2011) Duke Realty Corporation’s (Duke Realty) St. Louis office has signed two new tenants in DukePort VI, a 320,000-square foot warehouse/distribution building it owns and manages in Bridgeton, Missouri, bringing the facility to 100 percent occupancy.
American Tire Distributors, a wholesale tire, wheel and related automotive supplies distributor, will lease 123,200 square feet in the building. Filling the remaining 52,800 square feet of space is LTL Systems, a freight transportation provider.
“We are pleased to welcome both American Tire Distributors and LTL Systems as Duke Realty tenants,” said Toby Martin, Senior Vice President, St. Louis operations. “Both companies found that DukePort VI met their space needs and provided features essential to product storage and movement. Being able to completely lease DukePort VI is gratifying, particularly given that few companies in the market are looking for large spaces.”
Michael Tatum with Jackson & Cooksey represented American Tire Distributors in their transaction, while Brian Bush with CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. represented LTL in their lease. Jon Hinds, Vice President, Leasing, with Duke Realty represented ownership in both transactions.
Located at 13269 Corporate Exchange Drive, DukePort VI is one of six Duke Realty industrial buildings just off I-70 and the Earth City Expressway. Space is available in two of Duke Realty’s other industrial buildings in Dukeport.
