ABOUT SUBTROPOLIS TECHNOLOGY CENTER

STC is owned by Hunt Midwest, an 85+ year old privately-held company owned by the Lamar Hunt family — owners of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Hunt Midwest has developed SubTropolis, the world’s largest underground business complex, since the 1960s when Ford, Pillsbury and Russell Stover became our first tenants. SubTropolis has grown to over 6M square feet of space (with 8M more available for expansion) and is home to more than 55 e-commerce, animal health, pharmaceutical, automotive and distribution companies that employ in excess of 1,700 people.

Hunt Midwest has long been a leader in industrial, commercial, retail, multifamily, seniors housing and residential real estate development. The development skills and expertise learned over the last 50+ years helped us design and build the ideal purpose-built data center campus for colocation, enterprise, wholesale and government users looking to take advantage of STC’s power, connectivity, scalability and protection.
