82k SF Warehouse Sale

Dallas-Ft. Worth
82k SF Warehouse Sale
Frankford Trade Center
An undisclosed investor (we could tell, but we're modest and like to pretend there are some things we don't know) purchased a new 82k SF warehouse at Frankford Road and Commodore in Frankford Trade Center. Argent Property Company completed the build-to-suit for Rexel Worldwide. Colliers International EVPs Joe Garrett and Tom Pearson repped both Argent and the purchaser. Argent's Jonathan Stites facilitated the transaction. Tom tells us Frankford Trade Center is a great location for warehousing and distribution, representing a great long-term investment for the investor client. Rexel consolidated its branch, regional, and division operations into this facility.
