The 531-acre master-planned industrial development is a joint venture between Port Logistics Reality (PLR) and Diamond Realty Investments (DRI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation.
The venture selected Cadence McShane and Ware Malcomb for the design/build construction of the first two buildings at the park totaling 1.5 million square feet. Constructed of precast concrete, both Class A facilities incorporate attractive design elements such as integrated aluminum panels at the entryways, accent lighting, and contemporary window lines.

The site is in close proximity to the Union Pacific Intermodal Facility and the third busiest FedEx Ground Hub in the United States. The site also offers easy access to I-20, I-30, I-35 and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
