Carrollton’s Thriving Industrial Real Estate Market

While many of Carrollton’s 124,000 residents know that the City has award winning parks, great schools, and is a wonderful place to raise a family, many don’t know that the City also has approximately 42 million sq. ft. of industrial space in over 650 buildings. That translates into almost 1,000 acres under roof. This space and its tenants are essential to the Carrollton economy, representing over $600 million in business personal property value alone.

The majority of the City’s industrial space was constructed in the late 80’s and 90’s, but new industrial growth continues today. Even while the City is approaching build out, infill sites are being developed and redevelopment is occurring. This is evident with the removal of the former ST Micro facility, which has paved the way for almost 1 million sq. ft. of new speculative industrial space. Carrollton’s industrial space is primarily located within Frankford Trade Center, Trinity Mills Industrial Park, and Valwood Industrial Park-the largest industrial park in the Metroplex. Carrollton is, and will remain, a desirable location for the industrial market, due to its central location, immediate proximity to the highway system, rail service, and access to a wide labor pool.
