Construction Starts for Mesquite Business Park
The Mesquite Airport Logistics Center is a project of Dallas developer Dalfen Industrial and will include 2 million square feet of warehouse space.
Work began this week on the first phase of the project – two buildings with almost 1 million square feet.
“Mesquite has been a great business partner on this project,” Dalfen’s Tyler McElroy said in a statement. “They have stepped up every time we have reached out to make the vision of the Mesquite Airport Logistics Center become a reality.”
The two new Mesquite buildings are scheduled to open in second quarter 2022.
“Today, we are not just celebrating a groundbreaking,” Mesquite Mayor Bruce Archer said in a statement. “We are celebrating another benchmark moment in our extraordinary economic development journey in Mesquite.”
In January, Dalfen Industrial bought land for the project near Interstate 635 and Mesquite Airport . The building sites are on East Scyene Road .
Dalfen has already built a 45-acre industrial park on East Kearney Street near Interstate 635 in Mesquite
Dalfen is an investor and developer of industrial properties in the U.S. and Canada . The company has been in the commercial real estate business since 1970 and entered the U.S. market in 1990.
Mesquite and other markets east of Dallas are seeing a surge in industrial building as demand for distribution space in North Texas has ramped up during the pandemic.
