This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet

Pillar Commercial is the latest real estate investment firm to spot prime opportunities in the comeback market of Addison, Texas

The Addison II light industrial building in Addison, Texas.

Through its Pillar Real Estate Fund I, the firm just closed on the 183K SF Addison II light industrial building at 4550 Excel Parkway. 

It is the fund’s third investment in the value-add and core-plus commercial real estate space. 

Sitting adjacent to Addison Airport and the Dallas North Tollway, Addison II is 100% leased with key tenants such as Southern Glazer Wine & Spirits, Assurant Solutions and Arbonne International.
