Kansas City, MO — March 19, 2019 — Hunt Midwest sold approximately 20 acres on the south side of MO-210—one mile east of I-435—to Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores, one of the nation’s industry-leading travel stop networks. As their first metro Kansas City location, Love’s will build a 12,000 SF building, eight gas pumps, eight diesel bays, a CAT scale, Speedco service center and room for 80 cars, 5 RVs and 125 trucks to park. The food concept is expected to be McDonald’s.
“The traffic spurred by the growth of the Hunt Midwest Business Center and the SubTropolis Business Complex make this a prime location for this use. We are pleased to have a Love’s Travel Stop added as an amenity to our existing and future tenants,” said Ora Reynolds, president and CEO of Hunt Midwest.
“Strategically, we knew this would be a great entry into the Kansas City market. We are pleased to bring a convenient, clean and friendly location to this area,” said Alex Fuller, Real Estate Project Manager “The number of businesses in the established park along with the existing traffic, created a development opportunity for Love’s Travel Stops. We look forward to opening in 2020.”
