A massive 6,000-acre logistics park in Lancaster, TX, is preparing for business, making some 60 million sq.-ft. of distribution, manufacturing, office and retail space available for a variety of operations.

Called the Dallas Logistics Hub and built by the Allen Group, a commercial real estate firm, the park is adjacent to Union Pacific’s southern Dallas Intermodal Terminal, a potential BNSF intermodal facility, four major highway connectors (I-20, I-45, I-35 Loop 9/Trans-Texas Corridor) and Lancaster Airport, which is in the master-planning stage to facilitate air-cargo distribution.

The Allen group believes this hub could become a key component of U.S. trade infrastructure, serving as a major “inland port” for goods shipped in from the ports of L.A./Long Beach and Houston, as well as from western deepwater ports in Mexico, for regional and national distribution to the major population centers in the central and eastern U.S.
