This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch landed a major corporate headquarters this month.
Construction services provider RPM xConstruction announced plans to build a 90K SF building inside the Craig Ranch office development to house more than 750 employees.
The construction services firm selected McKinney Corporate Center after considering the development’s access to Sam Rayburn Tollway and the numerous residential and retail options nearby.
“We had been looking for a site to build our new corporate headquarters for some time,” RPM Manager Barry Rich said in a statement. “After looking at all that the McKinney Corporate Center has to offer, we chose this site as our future. With the tremendous growth of RPM and our affiliated companies over the last 10 years, we feel McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch is a perfect fit for us.”
RPM is moving to McKinney from Plano, with construction set to launch on the new three-story building in early 2021.
A 16-story Downtown Fort Worth office tower is on the sales block.
The 300K SF 115 West Seventh St. building, formerly known as The Oncor Building, offers potential buyers a chance to purchase a downtown office building that's 90% occupied and anchored by Class-A retail on the ground floor.
The property is owned by an affiliate of Benbrooke Realty Investment Co. JLL’s Ryan Matthews is handling the sales effort.
