New industrial park coming in southwest Dallas

International industrial building developer Prologis is working on plans for a new business park in southwest Dallas.

The project is planned on one of the last large vacant tracts in the Mountain Creek development on the north side of Interstate 20.

Prologis last year bought 94 acres at Mountain Creek Parkway and Merrifield Road. The property includes the original marketing center building for the Mountain Creek development.

It’s across the street from the big Niagara Bottling and Jack-in-the-Box distribution centers.

Prologis plans to build roughly 1.6 million square feet of warehouse space in two buildings on the property, according to filings with the City of Dallas.

The developer also has room for additional construction at its Prologis 20/35 business park in Lancaster.

The two development sites will allow the developer to continue to chase major warehouse tenant requirements, such as the proposed Kimberly-Clark distribution center, which could total around 1 million square feet.

Kimberly-Clark is looking at locations along Interstates 20 and 45, property brokers say.
