The Allen Group, a Major Developer of Commercial Properties Across the United States, is Hosting a Texas-Style Celebration to Commemorate the Grand Opening of the Dallas Logistics Hub.

April 11, 2007

The Dallas Logistics Hub is the largest new logistics park under development in North America, with 6,000 acres master-planned for the potential development of 60 million square feet of distribution, manufacturing, office and retail uses.

This premiere logistics facility 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 stages to facilitate air-cargo distribution.

The Dallas Hub, which spans across the communities of Dallas, Lancaster, Wilmer and Hutchins, is a key component of the NAFTA infrastructure and will serve as a major “inland port” bringing products from the Ports of L.A./ Long Beach and Houston, as well as the western deep water ports in Mexico for regional and national distribution.

This is an exciting opportunity as the Dallas Logistics Hub is slated to become one of the biggest economic engines for Northern Texas, with the project creating 30,000 new jobs in southern Dallas County, including increasing the tax base for the communities of Lancaster, Wilmer and Hutchins by $2.4 billion.

The grand opening event will also include appearances by Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams, U.S. Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson and several other state and local dignitaries, community and business leaders.
