This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet

Finial Group, a Houston-based full-service commercial real estate firm, has closed its first acquisition in the DFW area, and is looking to expand more in the market.

Westmoreland Business Center

The company purchased the Westmoreland Business Center, a two-building light industrial project totaling 85K SF in the Redbird submarket of Dallas. Finial Group will lease and manage the property itself, and represented itself in the acquisition.

The Redbird submarket is one of the stronger industrial submarkets with market vacancy of 2.8%, and Finial Group said a vast majority of the properties around the Westmoreland Business Center are 100% leased.

Finial Group is seeking additional acquisition opportunities in the DFW market and said in a release it plans to expand its presence in the market in the coming months.


Crescent Real Estate’s Angelique Wade

Crescent Real Estate’s Angelique Wade was promoted to general manager of McKinney & Olive. Her role entails much more than oversight of that one building, though — she will also handle direct property management of 2401 Cedar Springs (Crescent’s newest development), oversee property management of Greenhill Towers and 511 East John Carpenter Freeway, work on Crescent acquisitions and help onboard and mentor Crescent employees.

Wade helped open McKinney & Olive in Uptown Dallas two years ago; in September, the mixed-use property reached 100% leased. Wade, who joined Crescent in September 2015, has more than 25 years of CRE experience and obtained DFW’s first LEED certification for Existing Building Operations and Maintenance.


Stephen Crosson rejoined Integra Realty Resources, a company he helped found two decades ago, as national practice leader of the Integra Litigation Practice Group. This group provides litigation support services for real estate-related legal cases throughout the U.S. and Caribbean. Crosson has nearly 50 years of experience in this arena, and is rejoining IRR from Capright. He will be based out of the IRR Dallas office and will focus on expanding that practice.

Texas Central, developer of the high-speed train between Dallas and Houston, has engaged global construction and engineering firm Salini Impregilo ­(an Italian firm operating in the U.S. with The Lane Construction Corp.) to lead the civil construction consortium that will build the Texas passenger line.

Under a Limited Notice to Proceed agreement, the project’s design-build participants will proceed with the front-end engineering and design of the train's civil infrastructure. Other services include optimizing execution approaches, strategies and logistics, as well as performing analysis to develop construction costs and schedule estimates. That work helps to develop a design-build contract that will be used to complete the civil infrastructure program. This is a precursor to financial close, after which construction of the civil infrastructure segments of the project will begin, Texas Central said in a statement.
