Lowe’s Companies Inc. will open a distribution center in Kyle Crossing Business Park, adding it to the list of companies moving into Plum Creek.
“Plum Creek has become a major employment center in Kyle because it offers a convenient and highly accessible location in a true live-work-play environment that appeals to companies and their workers,” said Momark Principal Terry Mitchell, who oversees development at Plum Creek. “This combination is difficult to find anywhere, especially in an environment that is as business-friendly as the City of Kyle and the State of Texas.”
Lowe’s signed a lease for 120,000 square feet in the 40-acre development, but has not stated how many jobs it expects to bring.
Alongside Lowe’s in Kyle Crossing, Amazon will be opening a sortation facility later this year, introducing more than 200 work opportunities.
South Korea-based ENF Technology is building its headquarters in Plum Creek and is expected to employ about 50 people.
“The City of Kyle has long been well-positioned to become a logistics hub, but we needed facilities on the ground to compete,” said Mayor Travis Mitchell. “Kyle Crossing has proven that Kyle is a highly desirable location among marquee companies at an opportune time when more and more of these businesses are expanding their logistics operations.”
