Southgate Plaza is a 32-acre mixed-use “aerotropolis” development that is intended for hospitality, retail, office and restaurant uses. The mixed-use development is well-positioned at a diamond interchange with recent traffic counts totaling over 100,000 daily near the Rental Car Facility, Airfield Drive, and the South Entrance and is accessible outside of the toll plaza for area consumers.
Recenlty, DFW Airport has relocated its administration and other business offices to the new headquarters building at Southgate Plaza. The three-story, 154,000 square-foot building is at the south end of the Airport adjacent to International Parkway near the Rental Car Center, with easy access from both the north and south access roads. The new building includes open workspaces to accomodate up to 525 employees, as well as areas for collaboration and impromptu meetings.
In addition to the headquarters building, Southgate Plaza will include a 137-room Hyatt Place Hotel, a 6,000 square-foot United States Postal Service facility, an Einstein Bros Bagels restaurant, and other retail, office and restaurant spaces. The larger Southgate development will provide opportunities for accommodations and amenities for over 164,900 daily airline passengers, over 122,000 daytime DFW employees and external workforce, over 4,400 daily patrons of the Consolidated Rental Car Facility within walking distance from the development, commuter traffic, and local residents of nearby cities. Additionally, bus transit connectivity to both the terminals and regional rail has been integrated into the planning of Southgate Plaza, bringing additional future demand to the development.
