Candy plant avoids sticky situation in Grand PrairieCandy plant avoids sticky situation in Grand Prairiehttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=14102015-03-26T06:39:00Z2015-03-26T08:00:00Z

GRAND PRAIRIE - Red Hots, Atomic Fireballs, Lemonhead, Now & Later and other candies will have cooler surroundings in the Ferrara Candy Co. distribution center at its Grand Lakes II facility at 3953 Gifford St.

Ferrara Candy agreed to renew full occupancy at its Class A, 1.06 million-sf Grand Lakes II within Grand Lakes Distribution Center.

Duke Realty Corporation built Grand Lakes II in 2008 on I-30 between Dallas and Fort Worth.

Grand Lakes is located in a State of Texas Enterprise Zone and has Triple Freeport inventory tax exempt status. Buildings on the site also can be served by Union Pacific Railroad.

Ferrara manufactures, repackages and sells a wide variety of candy.

“Grand Lakes II is a modern, Class A, well-maintained building with superior highway access, but did not have air-conditioning throughout,” said Randy Wood, Vice President of Leasing.

“A critical component of the lease renewal was adding HVAC so that the remaining 355,933-sf, ambient-air portion of the building also would be air-conditioned. Our ability to complete this upgrade in an expedient manner without disrupting Ferrara Candy’s operations, as well as a few other improvements, was important in Ferrara Candy’s decision.”
