Core5 Industrial Partners and MBK Industrial Properties break ground on 1.8 million-sq.-ft. industrial spec development in Schertz

Schertz, TX, December 8, 2022 – Core5 Industrial Partners, in a joint venture with MBK Industrial Properties, announced that its Core5 Logistics Center at Interstate 10 Project — an industrial spec development in Schertz — has broken ground. The 1.8 million sq. ft. project is being developed in two-phases with Phase I expected to be completed by November 2023. Located at Interstate 10 and N Loop 1604 E, the project will provide much needed industrial space in Greater San Antonio’s most active submarket for logistics and warehousing operations. This project will be Core5’s and MBK’s first development in the San Antonio market.

“The San Antonio industrial market has proven to continuously attract an abundance of tenant interest, and with a vacancy rate at 3.5% we are excited to provide more space and opportunity to this bustling market,” said Liam Logan, Director of Investments of Core5 Industrial Partners. “This particular area of east San Antonio has proven to be a prime location for industrial development that appeals to logistic and warehouse operations, and we look forward to joining the submarket with this exciting industrial spec development.”

The site is strategically located on Interstate 10 and provides convenient access to Austin via TX-Toll 130, Houston via I-10, and Dallas via I-35. It is approximately 185 miles to the Mexico border and conveniently located to facilitate cross-broder shipments.

“We are excited to partner with Core5 on this opportunity.  The San Antonio market has seen tremendous growth over the last few years, and we anticipate this trend to continue,” said Vijay Pandurangadu, MBK’s Vice President of Industrial Properties. “San Antonio’s growing labor market and convenient access drove our decision-making for MBK’s first project in Texas.”

Phase I, which has broken ground, will consist of two buildings totaling 1,000,080 square feet. Building A offers 533,520 sq. ft. of cross-dock capability, while Building B will offer 466,560 sq. ft. of single-loaded space, creating leasing opportunities for various large tenants.

Phase II will consist of two buildings totaling 788,940 square feet. Building C offers 400,140 sq. ft. of cross-dock capability, while Building D will offer 388,800 sq. ft. of single-loaded space, creating leasing opportunities for various large tenants.

Upon completion, the four-building park will feature 40’ clear height; ESFR fire protection; Clerestory windows for natural lighting; 54’ x 50’ column spacing; 185’ Truck courts for trailer parking or storage; ample dock positions and drive-in ramps; and significant on-site parking spaces and car parking with dedicated entrances.

Carlos Marquez and Brett Lum of Partners are the exclusive leasing agents for Core5 Logistics Center at Interstate 10. The buildings are being offered for lease and for sale.
