What is IIPOD?
The IIPOD is a public-private partnership serves as a third phase of regional intermodal development (building off of DFW Airport and AllianceTexas). It is a coordinated effort partnering communities and developers and a key driver in making Dallas the nation’s premier logistics and distribution center. The opening of UP’s Dallas Intermodal Terminal in 2005 jump-started the initiative. IIPOD is a catalyst for Southern Sector investment, job growth and development of sustainable communities, with a goal of increasing the city-wide tax base.
Located in Southern Dallas County, the active project’s impact area encompasses more than 7,000 acres and six municipalities, including Dallas County. More than 12 million sq ft of warehouse space has been built or is currently under construction. A little over 10.5 million sq ft of this space has been leased. The project takes advantage of the region’s superior transportation infrastructure, which includes five interstate highways and two Class I railroads (Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe), and is focused at the confluence of Interstates 35, 45, and I-20.
