Developer Billingsley Co. is starting another warehouse in its Mercer Business Park on LBJ Freeway.
The construction of its second industrial project in the business park is being launched with a lease to ViaTech, a printing company.
ViaTech will take 75,000 square feet in the 260,000-square-foot building. The company will move its operations from Billingsley’s Metropolitan Distribution Center in late 2015.
“We couldn’t be happier to kick off a new building at Mercer with them as our first tenant,” partner George Billingsley said. “There is tremendous demand for space and we have had several interested prospects for distribution center space as well as build to suit development.”
Billingsley’s first warehouse in the project is a 340,000 square foot building that will house Reliable Sprinkler and Paragon Distributing.
The 225-acre Mercer Business Park is located at the northwest corner of LBJ Freeway and Interstate-35E.
Kurt Griffin of JLL negotiated the ViaTech lease.
