$9 million investment in industrial speculative space will spur economy
Round Rock, Texas – The Round Rock Chamber announced today that EastGroup Properties will build additional speculative space for Phase II at Settlers Crossing located on Old Settlers Boulevard.
EastGroup plans to invest over $9 million in real property improvements in the construction of a light industrial and warehousing facility in Round Rock. When complete, the two new buildings combined will add approximately 172,795 available square feet of light industrial product to the city. Building three is 97,518 square feet and building four is 75,277 square feet.
“With Phase I performing well at 90% leased, we are pleased to officially kick off Phase II at Settlers Crossing later this month, said David Hicks, Vice President of EastGroup Properties. “Our anticipated delivery is Q2 2020. The success to date is primarily due to Round Rock’s business friendly environment, ample nearby amenities, close proximity to I-35, and the project’s flexible building design. Settlers Crossing can accommodate a wide-range of users between 8,000 and 97,518 square feet.”
EastGroup is an equity real estate investment trust focusing on development, acquisition and operation of industrial properties in major sunbelt markets. Their portfolio, including development projects and value-add acquisitions in lease-up and under construction, currently includes approximately 43.5 million square feet.
”We are excited to see the master plan at Setters Crossing move forward as scheduled,” said Jason Ball, the chamber’s president and CEO. “The additional space will help fill that gap in our city for much-needed industrial space offerings and act as an engine for economic development bringing more jobs and investment to the community.”
