Keystone Automotive Industries is consolidating and relocating two of its existing Dallas facilities into the building, as well as increasing its leased space.
“We are pleased that our Grand Lakes I building offered a complete solution to Keystone Automotive Industries’ needs, including the space to consolidate their operations under one roof, as well meet their additional square footage requirements,” said Jeff Thornton, Senior Vice President of Duke Realty’s Dallas operations. “The building’s location on I-30 halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth, state-of-the-art features such as 32’ clear height, a 180′ truck court, ample dock and drive-in doors, and its excellent access made Grand Lakes I Keystone Automotive Industries’ first choice.”
Delivered in 2006, Grand Lakes I is a cross-docked, 755,355-square foot building located at 4003 Gifford Street at the southeast corner of I-30 and MacArthur Boulevard in the Grand Lakes development park. With Keystone Automotive Industries’ lease, the building is 72 percent occupied, with 209,000 square feet still available for lease.
