Officials break ground on Republic warehouse 

Posted online

A 200,000-square-foot logistics facility under development in Republic had its groundbreaking on April 5. 

Caleb Moreno, president and founder of Moreno Group Commercial Realty, said construction will consist of three phases, with the first 50,000 square feet to be completed by early November for 6 Point Junction, the warehouse to be located adjacent to the Amazon STL 3 fulfillment center. An aerial view of the warehouse site provided by Moreno shows that it will be located on the BNSF railway, near the intersection of Missouri Highway MM and the James River Freeway/U.S. Route 60. 

Moreno said he is in talks with two potential tenants, though he declined to name them, and agreements are expected to be inked within 30 days. 

“The potential is three tenants, and we’re trying to line them up,” he said. “There might be more – there’s a lot of square footage.” 

The developer is Dianna Devore, whose LinkedIn profile identifies her as president of DAD Commercial LLC and Lady Di Properties LLC. Devore was owner and president of Design Fabrication for over 12 years, selling the business in May 2023. Prior to that, she was general manager of SRC Holdings Corp., according to her LinkedIn bio. 

A LinkedIn post by Devore shows design team representatives present at the groundbreaking. They included representatives of contractor Branco Enterprises Inc., architect H Design Group LLC and engineering firm Olsson Inc. Multipli Credit Union provided the financing. 

Moreno Group describes 6 Point Junction as an industrial/flex space in an area where much is happening. 

“There’s a lot going on in that corridor,” Moreno said. “Republic’s got quite a bit projected for that area.”
