Along with the AC Hotel by Marriott headed to Downtown Fort Worth, expect a number of new hotels in the Dallas-Fort Worth area this year.
A new report by JLL ranks the DFW area No. 3 nationally for 2019 hotel construction.
According to the report, there were 7,454 new rooms set for construction at the beginning of 2019, which represents 5 percent of the nationwide hotels under construction.
The JLL report also expects that DFW will be the fourth busiest market for retail construction in the country, with 3.3 million square feet being built at the start of the year. Houston, Northerm, New Jersey and Long Island, respectively, are the only areas ahead of DFW.
Transwestern takes industrial spot
Transwestern Investment Group (TIG) on Feb. 12 announces it has acquired a 1.2 million-square-foot industrial property in north Fort Worth. TIG acquired the property from DHL Supply Chain.
“This acquisition provides us the opportunity to take advantage of the current market dynamics of North Fort Worth and the Alliance submarket as it continues to show growth and remains one of the top industrial submarkets in the DFW metro,” said Greg Laczkowski, managing director at TIG. “Additionally, this investment has initiated a relationship with DHL that may unearth future opportunities within its sophisticated logistics network.”
Constructed in December 2018, the property consists of two cross-dock buildings: a 705,955-square-foot building at 1753 Chaplin Drive and a 494,041-square-foot building at 15453 Wolff Crossing.
Each building offers a 36-foot clear height. Located near the intersection of Farm-to-Market Route 156 and Old Blue Mound Road, the property has convenient access to Interstate 35 West and U.S. Route 287 via Texas State Highway 114. It is approximately 20 miles from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
