THE DEAL SHEET

 
The decision to renew 205k SF at Heritage Business Park was one year in the making, a turtle’s pace for a company named Rapid Aircraft Parts Inventory & Distribution. But eventually, the firm opted to stay put (deal particulars were not disclosed) in the 1.3 million SF warehouse/distribution development near DFW Intl. Airport.
 

A tenant at the business park in Grapevine (801 Industrial Blvd) since ’04, Rapid Aircraft Parts’ long-term renewal kept the park's occupancy at 80%. Bradford Commercial Real Estate prez Kevin Santaularia, VP Michael Spain, and SVP Todd Lambeth repped the owner, Honolulu-based A&B Properties. CBRE's John Roper repped the tenant. Rapid Aircraft Parts had several relocation options for its regional distribution center, but Kevin says the owner got very aggressive, which shows ownership is doing what takes to keep tenants and attract new ones.
