The park’s notable features include up to 205-foot truck courts and 40-foot clear heights, cross-dock and rear-load configuration, ample truck and auto parking, best-of-class landscaping and 10 points of ingress/egress on three different roads.

“Passport Park brings the total to 34 buildings Trammell Crow Company has developed on DFW Airport property,” said Jake Marks, Principal with Trammell Crow Company’s Dallas-Fort Worth office. “As has always been the case, the DFW Airport team has been a great partner in delivering a first-class business park.”

The spike in demand for distribution and logistics space during the pandemic has spurred a run on industrial space in North Texas. According to CBRE’s Q2 2021 Dallas Fort-Worth Industrial MarketView, the DFW Airport submarket has experienced the most industrial demand in the region with 6.6 million square feet of trailing 12 months net absorption, more than 25 percent of the total market’s net absorption. Scarce available land and strong tenant demand for the centrally located submarket resulted in the direct vacancy rate decreasing to 4.8 percent in the second quarter of 2021, 170 basis points lower year-over-year.
