This week various news sources state that United Parcel Service will build a 225,000 square foot distribution center on 50 acres of land where IH-35 and SH-45 meet. The facility should be up and running by the end of 2018. It is expected that this new facility will add 300 new jobs that will have a pay in the range of $50,000.

This is good news for Round Rock for the new hires that will staff the facility. It is also good news for us investors of area wide residential real estate. All of the contractors, and suppliers associated with bringing the building up to operations have to live somewhere as will the 300 new hires in 2018.
