The property spans 70 acres and is located 40 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth, west from U.S Highway 87. This is now the largest industrial property acquired to date for Preston Forrest Capital.

Before becoming a distribution warehouse, the building was an insulation manufacturing and distribution center.
