Mo. businesses are literally going underground

SmartBrief on Small Business | May 04, 2015

A former limestone mine in Missouri has been converted into an underground business hub known as SubTropolis. Fifty-two businesses lease space in the complex, which can provide advantages such as modest construction costs and stable temperatures. "In the dead of winter and summer, we're saving $35,000 a month on our energy bills by being here," says Mark Mathis, CEO of Vanguard Packaging, which takes up 500,000 square feet in SubTropolis.
