Warehouses at East Grant Line

Developers somehow got into their heads that the area between the East Grant Line and the railroad is a good place to build warehouses. A couple are built recently and no fewer than two are under construction. This does not count the older ones at the corner of MacArthur.

I wonder what they are thinking. The old logistics area to the west is well connected to 205 and 580 by the way of Mountain House avenue. That's fine, that's understandable. But the only way to get in an out of the new area is by MacArthur to the ever-congested 205. I heard a new interchange is planned between MacArthur and Highway 5. This does not help trucks which need to go south. They have to travel through Banta towards Kasson and get on 5 before Dueler.

These warehouses are going to stay empty for a long time, unless the price pressure for leases in the West area gets really unbearable.
