News Release: Seefried and USAA Real Estate to develop largest speculative Class-A warehouse in DFW Metroplex history
FORNEY, Texas, Dec. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- USAA Real Estate and Seefried Industrial Properties have partnered to develop East Gate Logistics Center, a 1,272,240-square-foot, modern Class-A distribution center in Forney, Texas, one of the fastest growing cities in Texas. This new facility will be the largest development of its kind in the history of Dallas-Fort Worth, currently one of the strongest industrial markets in the country.
Forney has seen tremendous growth over the last 24 months, as the industrial base has rapidly expanded to include key logistics facilities for Goodyear, Amazon and other top name companies. These additions led to Forney being named one of the fastest growing cities and school districts in Texas and Kaufman County recently being named the third fastest growing county in America.
East Gate Logistics Center will offer a cost-effective solution to large-scale ecommerce, distribution and manufacturing uses. The site's location provides convenient access to both Interstate 20 and Highway 80, as well as a labor force of over 1.3 million people within a 30-minute drive.
East Gate Logistics Center will include all of the features of a state-of-the-art Class-A logistics facility, such as 40' clear height, on-site trailer queuing, abundant car and trailer parking, multi-tenant capability, ESFR sprinkler system, and more. Located just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas at the intersection of Highway 80 and Gateway Blvd., the project will break ground in 1st Quarter 2022 and deliver in mid-2023.
Tony Creme and Ann Jaggars with KBC Advisors are leasing the project on behalf of USAA Real Estate and Seefried.
