Allen to Build Dallas Hub

By William Hoffman

Commercial real estate developer The Allen Group will break ground Nov. 27 at their Dallas Logistics Hub on two buildings that are expected to be the first in North Texas certified for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The two buildings, totaling 827,000 square feet, are sited on the 6,000 acre property in south Dallas County, which can support as much as 60 million square feet of distribution, manufacturing, office and retail development.

The Dallas Logistics Hub is located adjacent to Union Pacific’s Southern Dallas Intermodal Terminal and near a possible BNSF intermodal facility, and is close to Lancaster Municipal Airport, which is planning an expansion to facilitate air cargo distribution.
