An Atlanta developer is breaking ground on a Lancaster shipping hub.
Robinson Weeks Partners is building the Dallas Midpoint Crossing, a 550,000-square-foot speculative industrial project on North Dallas Avenue near Interstate 20.
The building is set to open in the second quarter of next year.
“Dallas is a world-class industrial hub serving an assortment of users that seek to take full advantage of its attractive accessibility, strong labor force and favorable climate for expansion,” David Welch, president and CEO of Robinson Weeks, said in a statement. “The accelerated growth we’re seeing in the market is a testament to its ability to support an elevated level of activity, and we look forward to watching the region continue to ascend as a key industrial epicenter with the addition of Dallas Midpoint Crossing.”
Randy Touchstone and Elizabeth Jones of JLL are marketing the new building to tenants.
The new warehouse will be Robinson Weeks’ 10th project in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
During the last decade, the developer has acquired or developed more than 5 million square feet of industrial projects in North Texas.
The D-FW area is the country’s fastest-growing industrial market, with more than 11 million square feet of leasing in the first quarter.
