Robinson Weeks will speculate to accumulate


Robinson Weeks Partners, an Atlanta-based real estate development and acquisition company, today announced it has started construction on a 562,640 square foot industrial building at Airport South Logistics Center within Dallas Fort Worth International airport (DFW).

The Class A speculative industrial project is located at 3400 E Airfield Drive on the southside of DFW Airport. The project has excellent access and visibility with frontage on three roads – Airfield Drive, Walnut Hill and Valley View Lane. The project is minutes from DFW Airport Terminals and Air Freight/Cargo facilities.

Robinson Weeks has started construction on a 562,640 sq ft industrial building at Airport South Logistics Center within Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.

Airport South Logistics Center is a 36-feet clear cross dock design with 190-feet truck courts and parking for more than 125 trailers with over 360 auto parking spaces. The multi-tenant design can accommodate users as small as 140,000 sq ft to a full building user of 562,640 sq ft.

With a location at the centre of the DFW Metroplex, the building will be attractive to e-commerce fulfillment centres, regional distributors and airport related companies, say the developers.

“€œWe are excited to be starting another project in the Dallas / Fort Worth market,” says Robinson Weeks Partners president, David Welch. “We are very bullish on Dallas / Fort Worth and have acquired and developed nearly 4.5 million sq ft of industrial properties since 2010. Dallas should continue to see strong population and job growth, leading indicators for industrial space demand, for the next several years. Notably, a significant portion of this demand will be generated from e-commerce related activities as companies continue to refine their final mile strategies.”

Alliance Architects designed the project with Pacheco Koch providing civil engineering services. The Conlan Company is the general contractor.
