The Top 5 Areas in Missouri For Commercial Construction

Snyder Construction Group has been around since 1978, and we build partnerships that last.

We have valued trade partners all over Southwest Missouri. We handle many different types of commercial construction projects in our great state.

What is commercial construction looking like in Missouri right now?

We take a look at the top five areas in Missouri for commercial construction.

1. Kansas City

Kansas City is undergoing a renaissance in 2022 with development projects downtown and in outlying areas.

A new $70 million stadium for the Kansas City Current, the state’s lone National Women’s Soccer League franchise, will be finished in time for the 2024 summer season. It will anchor the Berkley Riverfront north of downtown.

It will be America’s first soccer stadium built exclusively for a women’s professional soccer franchise. All of the other teams play in stadiums shared with an MLS club.

At Main and Armour, an affordable housing project is going up with a 62-unit building as part of a mixed-use development costing $100 million. It will break ground sometime in 2023, and it features a development spanning an entire city block.

These projects are among several commercial construction projects currently happening on Missouri’s western edge.

2. Columbia

Columbia is home to Mizzou’s beautiful campus and a vibrant healthcare facility and research sector in central Missouri.

The Boone Electric Cooperative is getting a renovated and expanded headquarters building, scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2022. The beautiful campus features environmentally friendly construction as well as member access to one of the largest regional utilities in the state.

Discovery Office Park is a 200-acre mixed-use development currently under construction in south Columbia. Adjacent to the picturesque Phillips Lake, the area features Class A retail establishments, residences, and office space. Many restaurants and an entertainment complex have already signed up as tenants, even with it still undergoing construction.

3. Wentzville/O’Fallon

Wentzville and O’Fallon are adjacent to each other as suburbs of St. Louis, and they’re two of the fastest-growing areas in Missouri with some fantastic commercial construction projects underway.

Much like Snyder Construction Group’s focus on LIHTC projects, Heartland View in Wentzville will be a 201-unit multifamily housing development on 13 acres. It will be finished by the end of 2022, have nine buildings, and offer families a place to live near the high school, retail, shopping, and healthcare.

Cosmos Corporation, a global pet care manufacturing company, grew rapidly in recent years. To help with this expansion, the company will construct a 200,000-square-foot global headquarters at $25.7 million for the project. Cosmos started in Wentzville, and it expects to add 60 more staff to its already-growing 100-person team in the coming years.

4. Lee’s Summit

As a suburb of Kansas City, Lee’s Summit has been growing rapidly for decades.

Paragon Star is, perhaps, one of the most ambitious projects to come to Lee’s Summit. The $250 million development features 10 soccer fields, hotels, office space, and retail will have its first phase complete by the end of 2022 with phase two starting in 2023.

In addition, several new tenants are flocking to the Streets at West Pryor development, which opened in 2020, as well as Summit Fair and SummitWoods Crossing. Summit Fair is undergoing a major redesign shift since Macy’s left as a cornerstone for the mall. Furniture Mall of Missouri will be moving into the former Macy’s store after an extensive renovation.

All of these additions are key factors in the construction developments happening south of Kansas City.

5. Springfield

Springfield’s economy always seems to weather the storms of volatility, and current commercial construction projects bear this out even as the economy recovers from the pandemic.

Moon City Lofts on North Eastgate nears ever-closer to completion as a beautiful commercial construction project. Framing is almost done, and then the interior work can begin on this multi-story development in a rapidly growing part of Springfield anchored by Cooper Estates, Furniture Row and Associated Wholesale Grocers on the other side of Highway 65.

Stillwell Columns, just south of downtown, is undergoing a renovation to modernize this affordable housing unit. Tenants have called this building home for decades, and this renovation will help modernize this multifamily housing project.
