Hunt Southwest Advances Work on Speculative Cold Storage Facility in South Fort Worth
First-of-its-kind project to be developed in Carter Industrial Park
Dallas — February 27, 2018 — Hunt Southwest Real Estate Development has completed sitework and is now in building design on a 300,000-square-foot, speculative, cold storage facility in Fort Worth. The first of its kind in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the speculative facility can accommodate a variety of cold storage uses, including freezer, cooler, foodservice/grocery tri-temp distribution, and food processing. Hunt Southwest expects to receive a building permit in approximately 2 months. Once building construction commences, building delivery will occur in approximately 9 months.
Located in the Carter Industrial Park south of Fort Worth, the state-of-the-art facility provides prime access to the interchange of two of the country’s most critical north-south and east-west transportation arteries (I-35W and I-20, respectively).
“This is a rare opportunity for a food distributor, public refrigerated warehouse, or manufacturer to capitalize on a highly strategic location, with best-in-class, new-construction amenities,” said Hunt Southwest Vice President T. Preston Herold. “The future tenant will be in great company in a vibrant industrial park that already has an extensive food industry presence with world-class corporations such as Tyson Foods, Mrs. Baird’s Bread, the Schwan Food Company, Mother Parker’s Tea & Coffee, Ben E. Keith Foods & Beers, Lineage Logistics, Core-Mark, Save-A-Lot and MillerCoors Brewing.”
Some of the facility’s highly marketable features include a 45-foot clear height, 9-inch-thick, shrinkage-compensating floor slab, continuous dock pit with vertical storing levelers, LED lighting throughout, abundant automobile and trailer parking, as well as the ability to be served by rail. The space can accommodate a single tenant 300,000-square-foot unit; a two-tenant arrangement with two 150,000-square-foot units or a two-tenant arrangement with one 200,000-square foot unit and one 100,000-square-foot unit.
Hunt Southwest has retained Kevin Kelly of CBRE’s Food Facilities Group to market the facility, which is located at 8200 Will Rogers Blvd, Fort Worth, Texas.
