The Allen Group (Dallas), a major developer of commercial properties across the United States, will open the Dallas Logistics Hub on April 13 at the Lancaster Municipal Airport in Lancaster, Texas.
The Dallas Logistics Hub is the largest new logistics park under development in North America, with 6,000 acres master-planned for the development of 60 million square feet of distribution, manufacturing, office and retail uses. The hub also has the potential to be the first logistics park with two intermodal facilities serviced by the two largest freight carriers in the United States. Union Pacific Railroad currently operates a 360,000 lift per year intermodal terminal adjacent to the Hub, with BNSF Railway Company evaluating a potential site on the western side of the project.
The Hub’s unique intermodal, rail and highway access positions southern Dallas county as the premier trade hub in the Southwestern United States and will serve as the gateway for the distribution of goods to the major population centers throughout the Central and Eastern United States.
Slated to become one of the biggest economic engines for north Texas, the Dallas Logistics Hub, at full build-out, will create approximately 31,000 direct and 32,000 indirect jobs and increase the tax base for the communities of Dallas, Lancaster, Wilmer and Hutchins by $2.4 billion. The Allen Group is a commercial development firm specializing in rail-served industrial parks and build-to-suit facilities, including Class A office buildings. The Company currently has 8,000 acres under development across the United States, with commercial properties ranging in size from 35,000 square feet to 1.7 million square feet, as well as four master-planned industrial parks. These projects include the International Trade and Transportation Center (www.ittc.com); MidState99 Distribution Center (www.midstate99.com); the Dallas Logistics Hub (www.dallashub.com), and recently announced, K.C. Logistics Hub near Kansas City.
