Hillwood: 2012 Was a 5 Million-Square-Foot Year at AllianceTexas

Hillwood Properties inked more than 5 million square feet in deals last year at AllianceTexas, the company’s 17,000-acre, master-planned community in North Fort Worth.

More than 2.3 million square feet represented new absorption, including a to-be-built 1.1 million-square-foot Amazon fulfillment center. Other new tenants include Genco ATC, Martin Brower, LG Electronics, Exel, and Grainger.

“This is a tremendous achievement for the entire Hillwood team at AllianceTexas, as well as our public partners that played an important role in accommodating our new and existing corporate residents,” said Mike Berry, president of Hillwood Properties, in a statement.

Other milestones for AllianceTexas: 300 tenants that employ 30,000; more than $1 billion in property taxes paid to the cities of Fort Worth, Roanoke, Haslet, and Westlake, as well as Tarrant and Denton Counties, and the Keller and Northwest Independent School Districts; more than $42 billion in cumulative economic impact to the North Texas region.
