July 25, 2017

Will Hodges, President of Cadence McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm has completed the first portion of Phase 1 of Southport Logistics Park. The 531-acre master-planned industrial development is a joint venture between Port Logistics Reality (PLR) and Diamond Realty Investments (DRI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation.

The venture selected Cadence McShane and Ware Malcomb for the design/build construction of the first two buildings at the park totaling 1.5 million square feet. Constructed of precast concrete, both Class A facilities incorporate attractive design elements such as integrated aluminum panels at the entryways, accent lighting, and contemporary window lines.

Located within the Inland Port area, off of I-45 in Wilmer, Texas, Southport Logistics Park is situated just 12 miles from downtown Dallas. The site is in close proximity to the Union Pacific Intermodal Facility and the third busiest FedEx Ground Hub in the United States. The site also offers easy access to I-20, I-30, I-35 and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Completed by Cadence McShane in February, Building 1 is a 1,075,260 square foot cross-dock building. Industrial users benefit from modern amenities including 36′ clear height, 50′ x 54′ column spacing, a 60′ staging area, 200 dock doors and 185′ truck court. Sizable parking for 243 trailers and 630 vehicles is also available.

This July, the firm delivered Building 7 at Southport Logistics Park. The 395,099 square foot facility offers an efficient cross-dock configuration, 36′ clear height, 54′ x 50′ column spacing, 60′ staging area, 70 dock doors and 185′ truck court. Building 7 can accommodate 114 trailers and 270 vehicles.

Both state-of-the-art speculative buildings are available for immediate lease by a single user or multiple tenants and can be customized to-suit.

“Drawing upon our extensive warehouse/distribution construction experience, Cadence McShane successfully streamlined the consecutive deliveries of the first two buildings at this highly anticipated development for our valued client, Port Logistics Reality,” stated Hodges. “Tenants seeking Class A space within this prime industrial market will find numerous advantages from the quality standards and workmanship offered at Southport Logistics Park.”
