Logistics Park receives award

Mohr Logistics Park was named the 2024 “Commercial Development of the Year” CoStar Impact Award winner in the Indianapolis market.

The CoStar Impact Awards recognize exemplary commercial real estate transactions and projects completed in 2023 that have significantly influenced neighborhoods or sub-markets.

This year’s winners of the CoStar Impact Awards were chosen for their growth, diversification and ability to overcome unique challenges in their markets, were selected from a panel of more than 660 industry professionals drawn from each respective market.

The Whiteland business park spans 475 acres and is a testament to the innovation that has redefined the Indianapolis metro area’s industrial capabilities. The initial land acquisition in June 2020 laid the groundwork for a business park that now houses industrial tenants like Cooper Tire (Goodyear), NFI Industries and DHL.

On April 1, 2023, an EF-3 tornado ripped through Lot 6, a recently completed one-million square-foot warehouse — the largest building in the park at the time — and the nearby community, leaving a trail of destruction that stretched for miles.

In the disaster’s aftermath, Mohr Capital sent a cleaning crew of 50 helpers, dumpsters, and other equipment to the neighboring farm to help in the massive cleanup effort. Mohr also jumped into action on the cleanup and rebuild of Lot 6 — and the entire million-square-foot warehouse was rebuilt in only seven months. This resilience in the face of adversity echoed the collaborative spirit that marked MLP’s inception. The public/private partnership with the yown of Whiteland also played a pivotal role in the recovery efforts.

That sentiment has proved true exactly a year later, with MLP’s triumphant CoStar Impact Award recognition.
