Forney New Development

Postby cp14 » 03 Jun 2020 16:54

Light industrial projects in Forney are starting to come up in the Gateway area of Forney. Goodyear just opened up a 1.2mil sqft distribution warehouse about a month ago. Amazon started a project for a 200,000 sqft warehouse for local Prime delivery trucks that are expected to be completed by September. This week the P&Z will be reviewing and probably approving a 1.0mil sqft warehouse for Amazon, which will be for widespread shipping warehouse like the one on 20/45 and Irving. Glad to see more light industrial projects in Forney. You can't compare to the northern cities but Forney is a pretty nice starter/middle-class city. It has good schools, about 20 miles from downtown Dallas, decent shopping areas, close to Mesquite/Rockwall, and a good median price point for houses. You can find cheaper new housing for around 150k mark, and bigger, better builder homes and subdivisions for around 300k. I'm sure the current and future supply of new homes and the price point is a big reason why Forney is seeing a lot more light industrial projects. And this may spur more housing developments + retail and dining.
