Meritex announced six new leases totaling 224,000 square feet of space at the underground Meritex Lenexa Executive Park. Couple this with the leases from the spring, and Meritex has leased a total of 371,120 square feet through the first six months of 2011. “Although it’s only 70 degrees underground, our lease activity this summer has heated up,” commented Lonnie Cannon, Meritex Property/Leasing Manager. “In addition to the six new lease deals, we’ve also leased over 145,000 square feet of space on a short term basis to four other companies.”

New tenants to Meritex include Ceva Biomune, which has leased 45,000 square feet of space for its warehouse and distribution operation.

In addition, Meritex has leased 24,000 square feet of space to a west coast health supplement company. They chose to expand their distribution operation to the Midwest in order to take advantage of distribution efficiencies. “Besides the central location and the property being an environmentally friendly facility, we like that it’s insulated from natural disasters. Because of this we will use our space at Meritex Lenexa Executive Park as our disaster recovery site as well,” their spokesman said recently.

Power Sales has expanded by 26,000 square feet and renewed its lease for an additional three years for a total of 96,000 square feet. Zach Fletcher, Regional Sales Manager, recently commented, “We love that the underground is environmentally friendly and that the consistent climate keeps utility costs down.”
