New Business Park Coming to Southeast Austin with Ferguson Prelease

AUSTIN, TX — Jackson-Shaw, a national real estate development company headquartered in North Texas, plans to transform more than 67 acres in Southeast Austin into a new urban industrial business park. Located at the northeast corner of State Highway 130 and Elroy Road, the four-building project will have 602,400 square feet of office, warehouse, and distribution space.

“This is a prime location on Highway 130, minutes from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Tesla, and core Austin,” said Jackson-Shaw Vice President of Development Miles Terry.

Ferguson Enterprises, a North American value-added distributor, has preleased all of building 3 for a total of 207,180 square feet. Ferguson is the largest U.S. distributor of plumbing supplies, PVF, waterworks, and fire and fabrication products. It is also a major distributor of HVAC equipment and industrial products and service.

“ATX 130 is breaking ground at an excellent time in an under-supplied submarket, and it’s designed with flexibility in mind, targeting tenants from 16,000 up to 395,000 square feet while offering trailer parking and outside storage,” said Leigh Ellis, Principal with AQUILA Commercial. “Coupled with its proximity to strong labor and rooftop growth, the development offers an ideal location for tenants.”

The project is scheduled to break ground in March with building sizes of 120,440 square feet, 80,365 square feet, 207,180 square feet, and 194,385 square feet.

Greystar, Whitman Peterson, and Marketplace Real Estate Group are the project’s equity partners, Burton is the general contractor, Method is the architect, Westwood is the civil engineering firm, and Comerica & Veritex provided construction financing. Leigh Ellis and Blake Patterson with AQUILA Commercial are managing the leasing assignment for the development.
