Whether near the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport or farther northeast near McKinney, the 121 Corridor is a hotbed for development.
The 35-mile stretch from the northern edges of DFW Airport to U.S. 75 has drawn car dealerships, hotels, restaurants, corporate offices, industrial and multifamily along its borders.
At the western section of that 35-mile stretch, the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport controls 17,000 acres with 6,000 of that earmarked for commercial development uses. Of the acreage identified for commercial development, about 2,400 acres have been developed to date, leaving about 3,600 acres remaining, DFW Airport Vice President of Community Development John Terrell said. Terrell is speaking at Bisnow’s Road to Riches! The 121 Corridor event Aug. 23.
