Ecolab, PODS sign big leases in Riverbend


Hunt Southwest Real Estate Development has inked two long-term leases totaling 260,176 square feet in its Riverbend West Distribution Center, a state-of-the-art, speculative distribution facility.

Ecolab, a global provider of water, hygiene and energy technologies and services to the food, energy, health care, industrial and hospitality markets, has leased 192,350 square feet in Riverbend West Distribution Center. This will allow the company to expand and consolidate operations from two third-generation facilities located in Riverbend East and Riverbend West business park. PODS, a moving and storage company, has leased 67,826 square feet and is also expanding and consolidating out of two third-generation buildings in the Riverbend East business park.

“We anticipated high demand for this distribution center in today’s strong industrial market,” said Hunt Southwest Vice President T. Preston Herold. “The facility’s central, accessible location in Fort Worth, combined with new- construction amenities, were a perfect t for both Ecolab and PODS as they looked to significantly expand their footprints in close proximity to their existing operations.”

Located at 2101 Reeves Place in Fort Worth, just south of Interstate 820 and east of Interstate 35W, Riverbend West Distribution Center is a 301,500-square-foot distribution facility that offers tenants prime proximity to air, rail and highway infrastructure and access to abundant and labor. With the completion of the Ecolab and PODS leases, there is one remaining unit available. The 41,324-square-foot space is move-in ready with 2,167 square feet of spec office, LED warehouse lighting, skylights, 12 dock high doors, one 14’x16’ drive-in door and abundant car parking.
