IBM (66K SF), an undisclosed financial services company (33K SF) and Home Point Financial (65K SF) leased a combined 164K SF from landlord Lexington Lion Farmers Branch L.P., an affiliate of Lexington Realty Trust. 

Lexington’s Chris Delzell and Transwestern’s Duane Henley and Nathan Durham represented Lexington in lease negotiations.

“Two Colinas Crossing underwent a major transformation that accelerated leasing efforts to bring the property to near full occupancy,” Delzell said. “It was a team effort, with Entos and Transwestern working with Lexington to achieve this high level of success.”

The property was single-tenant up until 2016 when the main tenant vacated. Lexington approached Transwestern to market and lease the property as a multi-tenant property as well as initiated a $1M capital improvement campaign. Entos Design drew up the upgrades for the building. The building is now undergoing tenant improvements and is expected to be ready for move-in early this year.
