New Spec Building Available

A new industrial shell speculative building, or spec building, located in Bridgeport West Industrial Park has been completed and is now on the market. A partnership between the City of Sioux City and H&R Construction, the 50,000 sq. ft. shell building was designed to help fill the need for industrial space requested by businesses looking to expand or relocate in a short period of time, with frequently requested features such as required ceiling or wall height. The building was constructed with minimal finishes to allow for maximum flexibility in the location of mechanical systems, electric service, plumbing and doors.

Located on a 4.78 acre site north of the Sioux Gateway Airport on Blvd. of Champions, both the building and the site on which it sits are expandable. Industrial scale utility infrastructure serves the site with excellent access to I-29 and it is positioned next to the new $264 million Seaboard Triumph Foods pork processing plant now under construction.

Past success with spec buildings proved effective to attract and retain jobs and create new tax base in Sioux City’s industrial parks. The city partnered with The Siouxland Initiative and MidAmerican Energy in the 1990’s to develop three spec buildings in the Bridgeport West Industrial Park. All of the buildings located on Murray Street were purchased and occupied by companies within 24 months of completion. An increased demand in recent years has led to new spec building development.  

“We know that businesses looking to expand or relocate make their location decisions based on the availability of a facility that is move-in ready or can be in a short period of time,” said Mayor Bob Scott. “This new spec building exceeds those expectations by also offering a prime location and ability to expand the facility or land required.”
