Alliance Brokers signs lease in Fort Worth’s Alliance project

Developer Hillwood said Friday that it has signed a big lease in its Alliance project in North Fort Worth.

Alliance Brokers Inc., an affiliate of Trans-Trade, has leased 292,500 square feet in the Alliance Global Logistics Hub at the southwest corner of Intermodal Parkway and F.M. 156.

The new lease is the first deal in a new heavy load container district Hillwood recently created near the BNSF Intermodal Facility.

“Alliance Brokers already has seen great interest from shippers who are interested in the new heavy-load container service we can provide at our new facility at Alliance,” Bruce Galbraith, CEO of Alliance Brokers, said in a statement. “There is a tremendous opportunity for companies to realize a significant costs savings by consolidating more goods into one container.
