Transportation Infrastructure

TexAmericas Center is positioned to give you access to the greatest domestic market share while still operating in the top-ranked State of Texas. This is because Texarkana is the lowest aggregate mile location in Texas to the geographic and population centers of the US. This gives tenants at TexAmericas Center an abundant consumer supply at the 500-mile reach:

  • 23 MSAs with a population over 450,000 residents
  • 10 of the fastest growing MSAs in the United States
  • 53.8 million people, which is 10 million more than the Dallas, Texas 500-mile reach. 

 

TexAmericas Center is also well-suited for international markets. In addition to being located within Foreign Trade Zone #258, we are located close to global business centers, international transportation infrastructure, and world class educational institutions, giving you a powerful advantage in a global marketplace.
