Lionchase Holdings, Inc., has agreed to build a 200,000-square foot cold storage facility on TexAmericas Center (TAC) just west of Texarkana, Texas, one of the largest mixed use industrial parks in the United States with over 12,000 acres. The project is expected to bring a minimum of $20 million investment.
Lionchase Holdings’ proposal includes a state-of-the-art cold storage facility with Frigitek and energy-saving technologies. Building features include: 55’ ceilings, over 135,000 square feet of refrigeration and freezer floor space, dry storage, blast freezing, pre-cooling, and 3PL processing and packaging services. The facility will service the public and be professionally managed by cold storage industry specialists.
“The exciting element of this cold storage project is the spurred interest it will create among other linked industries within the food processing cluster who need access to cold storage supply chain services,” said Scott Norton, Executive Director / CEO for TexAmericas Center, “We anticipate that this development will attract additional leads from food processors, manufacturers and distributors to locate to the greater Texarkana region.”
Construction for the cold storage facility is slated to start this fall with a planned completion timeline of 18 months for the new facility. The anticipated start of Operations will be by Dec. 31, 2019.
