MESQUITE, TX-After a 10-month search for an expansion site, Midwest Air Technologies Inc. has blessed a five-year lease for 259,200 sf of a class A cross-dock in Skyline Trade Center. The move-in is set for Dec. 1 when its lease expires in Carrollton.

The Lincolnshire, IL-based Midwest Air Technologies’ executive team was eyeing up eight buildings, including its existing location, when it gave the nod to a 492,000-sf empty building at 2300 Skyline Dr. Atlanta-based IDI Inc.’s cross-dock has been waiting for a tenant to light its space at least one year, delivering simultaneously with a 262,000-sf sister that’s now fully leased to four tenants.
