Heartland Coca-Cola’s vision to build more than 1 million square feet of manufacturing and distribution in Olathe slowly but surely is coming to fruition.

Last week, the Planning Commission unanimously approved Heartland Coca-Cola’s 116.88-acre final plat for the construction of a 640,879-square-foot facility at the southwest corner of 167th Street and Hedge Lane.

When the company announced the project in October, it was a $300 million, 640,879-square-foot facility.

After a revised plan submitted in December, the entire facility now will total 1.19 million square feet with Heartland Coca-Cola’s addition of a 547,781-square-foot second phase, as well as trailer/tractor parking to the north and west.

Next, Heartland Coca-Cola must submit a final development plan to the City Council. If approved, construction will begin soon after and wrap up by the end of 2024.
