Hines Global Income Trust, Inc. (Hines Global), a public, non-listed real estate investment trust sponsored by Hines, has acquired an Amazon-leased e-commerce fulfillment center northeast of San Antonio in Schertz, Texas.

The 1,262,294-square-foot Class A, e-commerce fulfillment center is located in the rapidly growing I-35 corridor between San Antonio and Austin.

This location provides direct access to the “Texas Triangle” serving a population of over 25 million people living in or around Austin/San Antonio, Houston and the Dallas/Fort Worth metros.

Hines said the deal represents Hines Global Income Trust’s second investment in the logistics sector in the U.S.
