Niagara Bottling LLC is considering buying a 637,368-square-foot speculative industrial building from VanTrust Real Estate, northwest of 112th Street and North Airworld Drive.
The space would be used as a bottling facility specifically for flavored beverages.
The Northland investment by Niagara could reach up to $216 million. Niagara Bottling anticipates creating 90 to 100 full-time jobs at its new facility.
The facility will supplement the Ontario, California-based company’s existing production facility in south Kansas City’s 49 Crossing industrial area. There, Niagara Bottling in 2020 opened an $84 million, 427,000-square-foot plant with 84 current full-time workers.
The company seeks a partial exemption on personal property taxes and a sales tax exemption on equipment purchases for the new site, provided through up to $182 million in conduit bonds.
