SOUTH DALLAS COUNTY - A wave of warehouse construction is ramping up in the I-20 corridor in southern Dallas County. Almost 7 million sf of additional warehouse projects are in the works.

Prologis’ Lancaster industrial park, located at Danieldale Rd. just south of I-20, has landed the largest chunk of the new industrial projects along I-20. Prologis projects have so far generated about 585 jobs for Lancaster.

  • Prologis is building a 1.2 million-sf regional food products distribution hub for PepsiCo’s Quaker Sales and Distribution Inc.
  • Right next door, construction is underway on a 282,000-sf parts depot for BMW. 
  • The developer just finished a 653,000-sf speculative warehouse in the same park.
  •  Up next is a 160,000-sf facility for Johnstone Supply Co.

Hillwood Investment Properties has two industrial park sites in the works near I-20.

  • Hillwood is working on a two-building, $23 million distribution complex near I-20 and Bonnie View Rd. that will include 1.1 million sf of new construction.
  • Hillword purchased more than 80 acres near the southeast corner of I-20 and I-45 for a 1.5 million-sf industrial park.

Trammell Crow Co. is building an $18 million, 800,000-sf speculative warehouse complex between Hampton Rd. and Polk St. The project could start as early as this month.

Mountain Creek Investments Ltd. has filed plans for a two-phase speculative warehouse project on Mountain Creek Pkwy. north of Merrifield Rd. The development will start late in 2013 with a 600,000-sf building, with expansion plans for an additional 1 million sf.

Seefried Properties is developing a 157-acre tract on Danieldale Rd. at Old Hickory Trail south of I-20. The property is planned for more than 2.3 million sf of warehouse buildings.

Grocers Supply Co. plans to build a $50 million, 740,000-sf regional food warehouse south of I-20 on Cleveland Rd. The planned distribution center would employ up to 350 people.

The success of the I-20 warehouse market has been spurred by construction of Union Pacific Railway’s huge intermodal shipping terminal in Wilmer-Hutchins.
