Midlothian is experiencing the largest wave of industrial development in its history. As of June 2022, there is over 2.4 million square feet of new industrial space under construction with an additional 2.8 million square feet that is planned to begin by the end of the year. Beyond the current activity, multiple sites are being prepared for future build-to-suit users as large as 1.3 million square feet.
The new industrial space includes buildings for new companies, such as Sunrider Manufacturing and SunOpta, and speculative space that will be available for lease. The speculative space includes buildings ranging in size from 100,000 square feet to over 550,000 square feet and will be able to accommodate users as small as 25,000 square feet. The new industrial space is being built by Logistics Property Company, Provident Realty Advisors, Arco Ventures, Hillwood, and KBC Advisors.
Midlothian’s proximity to Dallas and Fort Worth makes the industrial corridor along US Highway 67 in Midlothian an attractive location for relocation and expansion. Midlothian is located south of Interstate 20 between Interstate 35W and 35E along US Highway 287 and 67. US Highway 67 offers direct access to Dallas 25-minutes away while US Highway 287 offers easy access to Fort Worth in 30-minutes. State Highway 360 offers quick access to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
Within a 30-minute drive of Midlothian is a labor force of over 1 million people who live in Arlington, Grand Prairie, Mansfield, Cedar Hill, Waxahachie, Cleburne, and surrounding areas. The populations within Midlothian’s 30-minute labor shed include high concentrations of workers with key competencies for production, maintenance, and business support services.

Through the implementation of the plan, the MED will build upon the City’s recent economic development highlights which have resulted in major businesses moving to Midlothian, the creation of new jobs, and diversification of our property tax base. Recent economic development highlights include Google’s $600 million data center which is now operational, the Methodist Midlothian Medical Center that opened late last year, and the groundbreakings for Sunrider Manufacturing and Vision Engineering at the Midlothian Business Park.
The MED was created by Midlothian voters to grow our local economy. We encourage all residents and local businesses to get involved and share your ideas and “Make great things with us”. Please reach out to MED staff at 972-723-3800 to share your thoughts about growing our local economy.
