NorthPoint Development: Beyond the Contract

NorthPoint Development is a privately held real estate development company specializing in complex master-planned projects. NorthPoint has logistics-oriented developments in 11 markets across the United States and serves as the real estate developer for Logistics Park Kansas City (LPKC), a 1,700-acre inland distribution hub that includes a public private partnership and BNSF’s newest intermodal facility. Typical discussions with prospective tenants include decreasing operating costs, matching empty containers with export loads, decreased drayage expenses and increasing utilization of domestic intermodal services. For lower volume shippers, typical savings represent 30 – 40 percent of the total costs of occupancy. For higher volume shippers, combined savings can represent the entire cost of occupancy.
