Molto Properties Breaks Ground on Speculative Industrial Development in Grand Prairie

On behalf of Molto Properties, CBRE announced construction has started on two speculative distribution buildings at GSW Commerce Center at 161, a Class A+ logistics park in DFW’s Great Southwest/Arlington (GSW) industrial submarket. Both rear load buildings are the initial phase of development and will total 464,495 square feet. They are expected to deliver in Summer 2023.

The industrial park is situated south of DFW airport and offers tenants highly desirable visibility on President George Bush Tollway (PGBT) and provides convenient access to robust transportation routes in I-30, SH-183, and I-20 just minutes away. More than half of the DFW metroplex — a total of 3.8 million people — can be reached within a 30-minute drive. The GSW submarket, the second-largest industrial submarket in the metroplex, contains approximately 115.5 million square feet of total inventory and encompasses approximately 13.1% of the overall market supply.

Located between E. Rock Island Rd. and E. Shady Grove Rd. in Grand Prairie, the first phase of construction offers two rear load buildings ranging in size from 211,940 to 252,555 square feet, 36-foot clear heights, 180 feet truck court aprons, ESFR sprinklers, dock high doors, grade level ramps, and a combined 116 trailer parking spaces and 410 standard parking spaces. The design and layout of the property includes three points of ingress and egress along Highway 161 and two points along E. Rock Island Road. It can accommodate a variety of industrial user demands including bulk distribution, shallow-bay or office/showroom. GSW Commerce Center will ultimately consist of multiple phases spanning across 145 acres total. Phase I and subsequent phases, which will be announced in more detail in Q4 2022, will total approximately two million square feet across multiple buildings in a diverse building configuration.

CBRE’s Brian Gilchrist, Steve Koldyke and Kacy Jones oversee the marketing and leasing of the business park on behalf of the developer.
