Courtland Development is adding another building in Mountain Creek Business Park on I-20.

Developers have broken ground on another North Texas industrial project — this time in Southwest Dallas.
Dating to the 1980s, Mountain Creek is already home to major industrial space users including Nestle, Kimberly-Clark, Cummins Diesel, Ultra and Niagara Water.
The new building, Mountain Creek 9, will have 76,335 square feet of space and is being built on Merrifield Road.
Courtland CEO Jon Napper said all the large industrial sites at Mountain Creek are gone.
After the current development, “that will leave 35 acres between Merrifield Road and the back of the existing business park, where I plan to build smaller warehouse and service buildings,” Napper said. “Only a 3-acre retail site on the corner of Mountain Creek Parkway and Merrifield remains.”
Courtland originally had more than 1,100 acres in the business park. During the past two decades, $570 million worth of buildings have gone up at Mountain Creek, which now has almost 4,000 employees.
Courtland recently completed two other small warehouses in the business park, one of which was sold to ADJ Industries/Desch, Napper said.
Alliance Architects designed the latest industrial project, and FCL Builders is the general contractor. The project will open in October.
Courtland still has 460 acres east of Mountain Creek Business Park, with plans for apartment construction and homes.
