This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
Hillwood Properties is growing AllianceTexas with the addition of 260 acres in Northlake to launch Alliance Northport and add 3M SF of Class-A industrial buildings, as well as retail and office.
The new acquisition is at I-35W and SH 114, across from the Texas Motor Speedway. Hillwood Properties VP Tony Crème tells us Alliance Northport continues Hillwood’s bullish growth plan throughout the AllianceTexas corridor with I-35W frontage in an area offering one of the lowest combined tax rates in DFW. The new space has the flexibility to accommodate a range of Class-A distribution centers from under 100k SF up to almost 1.3M SF, all offering direct access to I-35W via the Dale Earnhardt Way interchange. With the expansion of I-35W underway, Alliance Northport is well-positioned to meet the demand of customers who value interstate frontage, speed-to-market and low operating costs. No time frame or specific details about how the development will progress were available.
