Corsicana My Hometown IconBusiness Properties In Corsicana

One of the goals of the Corsicana My Hometown group is to help grow Corsicana in a positive way. With this in mind, we want to list from time to time available business properties in the area, as opportunities for new businesses to come to Corsicana. Corsicana My Hometown is not affiliated with any Real Estate Agency, nor does our organization get commission for these listings. We post these available properties solely for the benefit of our community, for growth and new jobs.

Industrial Space (1 Million SF) on Business I-45 South This 1.5 million sq. ft. building, located just off Interstate 45 in Corsicana, currently has 1 million sq. ft. of vacant space and is available for either lease or purchase. The property, which sits on 139 acres adjacent to the Union Pacific main line and has 26 ft. ceiling heights throughout, would make an ideal site for manufacturing or distribution.

For more information, visit the City of Corsicana economic development website at Industrial Space (1 Million SF) on Business I-45 South.

Men... you can accomplish anything in your life if you want to badly enough -- if you have enough pride, desire and determination, you can be successful at whatever you choose to do. I will work you harder than you ever thought you could work -- but if you are to win you must have something down inside of you that causes you to rise above the rest.
Jim Acree, Corsicana High, 1960
