This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
Despite a massive wave of uncertainty throughout the global economy, commercial real estate deals in North Texas continue to close.
In fact, one Grapevine office building linked to a portfolio of five assets sold within a week of hitting the sales block.
With the help of Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services, Lakeland West Capital LLC sold a 20K SF building on 2.3 acres at 3600 William D. Tate Ave. in the DFW suburb of Grapevine.
The buyer is a local real estate firm operating under the name 3600 WDT LLC.
The asset sat on the market for a week before finding the right buyer, Bradford Commercial said. The building is part of a five-building portfolio owned by Lakeland West Capital.
Bradford's Eric Blais credits the size of the building, along with its parking ratios and location, for the quick sale.
"There are very few buildings for sale of that size that will work for an owner-user," Blais said in a statement.
Vision Commercial Real Estate named Tracy Gray vice president, specializing in hospitality and investment properties.
Prior to joining the brokerage, Gray worked at Colonial Commercial Real Estate, where he focused on large CRE sales and acquisitions, handling everything from office towers, shopping centers and event venues to specialty assets.
Gray also spent a decade in the hospitality sector, serving Le Cep restaurant in Fort Worth as a partner and manager.
The Burgundy multifamily complex on Marsh Lane in Dallas sold for more than $7M this month. The property, which comes with 111 apartment units, was purchased with the help of financing secured by NorthMarq's Dallas office.
