There will be five loading docks for material handling and the new building, along with the existing 12,000-square foot building, will have a new fire protection system.

The latest addition will increase the supply of commercial lease space offered by Joseph Properties LLC to a total of 75,000 square feet, serving several companies with needed space for warehousing and light commercial operations.

“This new addition in Austin’s Industrial Park represents an investment of almost $1 million to the Austin business community and will be built entirely by local subcontractors,” said Wagner. “The project is in response to a growing need for warehouse storage and to accommodate the growth of new and existing businesses in town.”
