Atlanta developer Robinson Weeks Partners has announced its third industrial development for the Titan Industrial Park in Schertz — and is planning for all three to be a charm. Through a joint venture with Titan Development, the two companies have plans for a 359,200-square-foot cross-dock distribution building for the 124-acre park, which is already home to two former industrial developments Robinson Weeks completed in 2014 and 2015.

Enterprise Industrial - Building III is expected to break ground this summer and deliver in Spring 2017. The facility will include 32-foot ceilings, cross-dock loading, nearly 70 dock doors, four loading ramps and dedicated trailer parking.

Last month, Canada-based light manufacturing company Major Wire signed a 53,011-square-foot lease in Enterprise Industrial - Building I. The transaction brought the 315,362-square-foot building up to 100 percent occupancy. Within 60 days of completing the second in what will soon be a trio of buildings, Robinson signed a 40,000-square-foot lease with Wilsonart and an 80,000-square-foot lease with Berger Transport & Storage to bring the property up to 40 percent occupancy. David Welch, a partner with Robinson who oversees its Texas developments, said the strong market fundamentals and positive employment growth in the area "give us great comfort to develop additional buildings in San Antonio." Schertz's easy access to the active I-35 corridor has been a magnet for large industrial users, which has prompted a number of new developments for the artery between San Antonio and Austin. USAA Real Estate Co. and Stream Realty Partners announced last month it would be teaming up for a new industrial development in New Braunfels. The I-35 Logistics Center, once completed later this year, will be a 397,000-square-foot warehouse with space to accommodate up to four tenants. Titan — which has a portfolio of residential, mixed-use, office, and retail projects developments — is also behind the Titan Industrial Parks in New Braunfels and Selma.
