One of the largest wholesale apparel manufacturers in the country is establishing a new industrial warehouse and distribution facility in South Dallas.

Global apparel firm SanMar Corp. is planning to expand its operations to a 415,176-square-foot distribution center in South Dallas, according to planning documents filed with the state, as reported by The Dallas Morning News.

Founded in 1971, the Seattle-based company sells apparel such as T-shirts, caps, sportswear, outerwear, bags, accessories, and more. SanMar sells more than 30 brands, including American Apparel, Brooks Brothers, Eddie Bauer, Nike, Tommy Bahama, and many more.

The company’s new distribution center is expected to open in the summer of 2023 and will be located in the Tradepoint 20/45 building at 4831 Cleveland Rd near Interstate 20. The facility will be operationally focused on shipping and warehousing, planning documents show.

Dallas-based commercial real estate investment and development firm Champion Partners built the facility in 2021, which was acquired a year later by Seattle-based Lake Washington Partners for $47 million in a deal coordinated by Jones Lang LaSalle’s capital markets division, The Dallas Morning News reported.

SanMar operates a total of eight distribution centers across the U.S., with a pre-established footprint in North Texas. SanMar already has a large distribution facility in Irving.

Southern Dallas is a hot market for industrial warehouse space, with more than 87 million square feet underway in the area, according to a report by commercial property firm Avison Young.

One of the largest Southern Dallas warehouse leases this year came from California-based Careismatic Brands, a medical apparel and footwear firm that leased a 1-million-square-foot facility at the I-20 Logistics Park building located off LBJ Freeway near Dallas Avenue.
