ST. LOUIS—KP Development has just signed leases with two more tenants who will occupy a total of 240,000 square feet at its new Fenton Logistics Park, which the company has begun building on the site of the former Chrysler assembly plant in suburban Fenton, MO. Hubbell-Killark, a global provider of integrated electrical industrial products, will relocate from Martin Luther King Dr. to a state-of-the-art, single-use 160,000-square-foot facility at the park, while BASF will move its 80,000-square-foot agricultural services division to a portion of another building.

The newest tenants will join BJC’s clinical asset management division, CoreLink, Alkem Labs and Beckwood Press Co., each of which already operates within the park. The revival of an abandoned auto plant into so many new uses illustrates that the region’s industrial market remains quite healthy, with a host of users ready to replace a company that had been a bedrock of the market.
