Dallas logistics park begins construction
The Allen Group said it will hold a groundbreaking ceremony today to mark the construction of the first two buildings at its Dallas Logistics Hub.
The 6,000-acre park is slated to eventually encompass as much as 60 million square feet of space, and the first two buildings will provide 827,000 square feet. They are scheduled for completion by April.
The facility is adjacent to Union Pacific’s Southern Dallas Intermodal Terminal, a potential BNSF intermodal facility, four major highways (Interstates 20, 45, 35, Loop 9) and the Lancaster Municipal Airport, which is in the master-planning stages to facilitate air cargo distribution.
The developers said the hub it will act as an inland port to receive products from the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach and Houston, as well as the western deepwater ports in Mexico for regional and national distribution.
