UNITED SUPERMARKETS TO BUILD DISTRIBUTION CENTER AT ALLIANCE
ROANOKE, TEXAS — United Supermarkets has acquired 15 acres with the Alliance Global Logistics Hub for the construction of a new distribution center. The facility will total 200,000 square feet and will be located on Freedom Drive in Roanoke. Site preparation work will begin by mid-November, with completion expected in September 2010. The project will be developed and operated by Exel, which already operates another United distribution center in Lubbock, Texas. The new facility will mark United's second distribution center in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Dan Cook of Cushman & Wakefield represented United in negotiations for the land purchase; the owner of Alliance, Hillwood Properties, was represented in-house by Tony Crème.
