DALLAS — The Allen Group started construction on the first two industrial buildings at the Dallas Logistics Hub ('The Hub'), a 6,000 acre multi-modal logistics park.
These buildings will provide over 827,000 square feet of new industrial space for lease in the emerging Southeast Dallas County industrial market.
DLH Building 1, a 635,000 square-foot cross-dock distribution facility and DLH Building 2, a 192,850 square-foot warehouse facility, will both be available for occupancy in April 2008.
The development team includes: GSO Architects, as architects and structural engineers;
Kimley-Horn & Associates as civil engineers and MYCON and 3i Construction, as general contractors.
'The Dallas Logistics Hub is open for business,' said Daniel J. McAuliffe, president of Allen Development of Texas.
'The Hub has quickly emerged as the prime logistics location in North Texas because of its strategic access to rail, intermodal and highway infrastructure.'
The Dallas Logistics Hub is adjacent to Union Pacific's Southern Dallas Intermodal Terminal, a proposed BNSF intermodal facility, four major highway connectors (I-20, I-45, I-35 and Loop 9) and Lancaster Airport, which is in the master-planning stage to facilitate air-cargo distribution.
The Hub is also a key component of the NAFTA infrastructure and will serve as a major 'Inland Port' by receiving products from the Ports of Los Angles, Long Beach, Houston, and the new deep-water ports in western Mexico for regional and national distribution.
