Robinson Weeks Partners Starts New Construction at DFW Airport

Real estate development company Robinson Weeks Partners has started the construction of a 562,640ft² industrial building within Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in the US.

It will be built at 3400 E Airfield Drive on the south side of DFW Airport. The Airport South Logistics Center project is near to the DFW Airport Terminals and Air Freight / Cargo facilities and provides access and visibility with frontage on three roads.

A Class A speculative industrial project, Airport South Logistics Center is a 36ft clear-cross dock design with 190ft truck courts. It will also have spaces to park more than 125 trailers with around 360 auto parking spaces.

With a multi-tenant design, the building can accommodate several users or a single full building user.

As well as supporting the companies associated with the airport, the building can feature e-commerce fulfilment centres and regional distributors.

Robinson Weeks Partners president David Welch said: “We are very bullish on Dallas / Fort Worth and have acquired and developed nearly 4.5 million square feet of industrial properties since 2010.

“Dallas should continue to see strong population and job growth, leading indicators for industrial space demand, for the next several years.

“Notably, a significant portion of this demand will be generated from e-commerce related activities as companies continue to refine their final mile strategies.”

The building is designed by Alliance Architects, while Pacheco Koch is providing civil engineering services.

The Conlan Company is the general contractor of the project.

Based in the US city of Atlanta, Robinson Weeks Partners is said to have developed and acquired more than $2.5bn of industrial properties in the last 35 years.
