Data Center Location

“We believe that this property will garner significant interest from both data center users, where recent demand has become almost insatiable, and a variety of last mile logistics users needing a facility in this area of explosive growth,” said Terry Rochford, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Hilco Real Estate. “Combine that with the certainty of the bankruptcy sale process, and you have a very compelling offering.”

AMR Corporation – American Airlines, Bank of America, Texas Health Resources, Baylor Health Care System, AT&T, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, and JP Morgan Chase & Co. are a few of the numerous significant local, regional, and US wide employers in Tarrant County, where the data center property is located.

According to Hilco Real Estate, the population of Fort Worth has increased to about one million people as workers have flocked there to take advantage of the employment possibilities, and is expected to rise by 1.2% year through 2027. Alliance Texas, a 26,000-acre master-planned development that has become one of the main industrial cores of north Texas, is also located in the region. Alliance Texas is a prime area to live, work, and play because it has a variety of commercial, retail, medical, residential, and entertainment alternatives that are all strategically developed and seamlessly include greenspaces, stated Hilco Real Estate.

“The property is well positioned just eight miles south of Perot Field Fort Worth Alliance Airport, which is dedicated exclusively to air cargo, as well as the BNSF Alliance Intermodal Facility, which serves as one of the nation’s premier inland ports,” said Ben Zaslav, Director of Business Development at Hilco Real Estate. “Solid economic underpinnings and the unique transportation infrastructure provided by rail, road, and air have resulted in this area becoming a veritable magnet for businesses both large and small, as well as the people they employ.”
