KYLE, TEXAS— Lowe’s Companies, Inc. has signed a lease for 120,000 square feet in Kyle Crossing Business Park where it plans to open a distribution center in Kyle, Texas.
The 40-acre business park is one block west of I-35 in the mixed-use master-planned community of Plum Creek – approximately 20 miles south of downtown Austin.
Lowe’s will occupy approximately 60 percent of Building 1 located at 1980 Kohlers Crossing, adjacent to the nearly 308,000-square-foot Kyle Crossing facility leased by Amazon in July.
“Plum Creek has become a major employment center in Kyle because it offers a convenient and highly accessible location in a true live-work-play environment that appeals to companies and their workers,” said Momark Principal Terry Mitchell, who oversees development at Plum Creek. “This combination is difficult to find anywhere, especially in an environment that is as business-friendly as the City of Kyle and the State of Texas.”
Located between Austin and San Antonio, Kyle is one of the fastest growing cities in Texas. Once primarily a bedroom community and now a city of over 50,000 residents, city officials have prioritized bringing more jobs and business to the community in recent years.
“The City of Kyle has long been well positioned to become a logistics hub, but we needed facilities on the ground to compete,” said Mayor Travis Mitchell. “Kyle Crossing has proven that Kyle is a highly desirable location among marquee companies at an opportune time when more and more of these businesses are expanding their logistics operations.”
More than 8 million square feet of commercial development is planned in Plum Creek.
Amazon plans to open a sortation facility in Kyle Crossing later this year that will employ more than 200 workers.
South Korea-based ENF Technology is currently building its $45 million U.S. headquarters nearby where it will employ approximately 50 workers in Plum Creek. RSI, Inc. moved its headquarters to Plum Creek in 2007 where it employs approximately 60 full-time employees.
