Mohr Capital, a Dallas-based privately held real estate investment firm that specializes in acquisition and development of commercial real estate assets across the country, completed Building 6 in February 2023. At that time, Mohr Logistics Park had 1.5 million square feet under construction, with another 1.2 million square feet of build-to-suit space expected to be developed.

Mohr broke ground on the project in June 2020. By July 2021, the developer had delivered Building 1, a 1 million-square-foot build-to-suit facility to Cooper Tire. That same month, Mohr began construction on Building 9, a speculative 827,000-square-foot facility, and Building 6.

Building 6 is a 40-foot clear-height, cross-dock warehouse and distribution facility. Other features include two drive-in doors, 68 dock doors and a total of 527 parking spots.

Located at 5741 N. Graham Road in Whiteland, Ind., Mohr Logistics Park is 19 miles from downtown Indianapolis and close to interstates 465 and 65. The location is 25 miles from FedEx’s Indianapolis International Hub and within 27 miles of Indianapolis International Airport.

Mohr deals

Mohr Logistics Park is the largest industrial park developed in the Indianapolis area in 15 years. Mohr has also been active in other markets around the U.S. in recent years.

Capital company and one of the leading providers of medical laundry services to the hospital industry. The off-market transaction included facilities in Phoenix, Winston Salem, N.C., and Birmingham, Ala.

In June 2022, the firm broke ground on a two-building, speculative industrial campus totaling 704,472 square feet in Surprise, Ariz., within Summit Business Park, a Foreign Trade Zone capable industrial area totaling approximately 142 acres. The buildings had 453,960 square feet and 250,512 square feet.
