A project bringing more than 230,000 square feet of warehouse space near McKinney National Airport is underway. The project, known as McKinney Airport Center, will provide space to help meet the demand for last-mile or infill industrial product in the region, according to a July 7 news release.

The buildings, at 107,300 and 123,885 square feet, are being constructed by Stonemont Financial Group, a privately held real estate investment firm that specializes in industrial developments. McKinney Airport Center will feature multiple suites, 24 dock doors, large clearance height with wide bays and more than 230 parking spaces, per the news release. It will be located at 2182 S. Airport Drive, McKinney.

“The development can accommodate a broad array of industrial users ranging from 6,000 to 100,000 square feet, helping to address an existing market void for facilities that offer smaller and more flexible footprints,” the news release stated.

The project is expected to be completed in early 2021. McKinney Airport Center will have direct access to the McKinney National Airport, which is located less than a half a mile away, and will enable local businesses to operate closer to their customers and distribution partners. It also provides a base for last-mile logistics providers, according to the news release.

“We are already fielding heavy interest from a variety of users seeking to capitalize on the inherent advantages that come with this location, and look forward to sharing more news on our progress in the months ahead,” said Zack Markwell, managing principal and CEO of Stonemont Financial Group, in the news release.


Space at the McKinney Airport Center would be ideal for industrial tenants that need space from 10,000 to 20,000 square feet, according to the news release.
