Contegra Completes 1M SF Distribution Facility in St. Louis

November 3, 2023  |  Since launching in 2019, Gateway Tradeport in Pontoon Beach, Illinois, in the St. Louis market has become home to 2.7 million square feet of distribution space. That’s after Contegra Construction Co. completed its fourth large distribution center at Northpoint Development’s 600-acre master-planned industrial community.

The new 1-million-square-foot Gateway Tradeport IV is built on a speculative basis to serve the region’s growing e-commerce market.

Located at 1202 Tradeport Parkway, Gateway Tradeport IV is constructed with tilt-up concrete panels. The facility features flexible space for multiple tenants, 40-foot clear height, 112 dock doors, fully equipped dock packages with 45,000-pound dock levelers, clerestory warehouse windows, efficient LED high-bay lighting with occupancy sensors and parking for 264 tractor-trailers and 752 cars.

The distribution center is topped by a TPO roof with R20 insulation. Contegra is also performing tenant finishes.

Gateway Tradeport IV joins buildings I and II, each 544,000 square feet, and the 624,000-square-foot building III, all built by Contegra. Contegra also made infrastructure improvements, extending public roads and gas, electric and water utilities to support Gateway Tradeport IV and future development.

Northpoint’s master-planned development can host more than 7.5 million square feet of distribution space.
