This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
StreetLevel Investments, 2GR Equity and Paravest Capital have formed a joint venture to acquire about 35 acres on the southeast corner of Chisholm Trail Parkway and McPherson Road in Fort Worth. The property will be the site of a 215K SF retail development, known as The Shops at Chisholm Trail Ranch, which will also include eight retail pad sites.
The project will be in the 600-acre master-planned community Chisholm Trail Ranch, which will ultimately feature over 1M SF of retail and other commercial space, and about 1,000 residential units.
StreetLevel Investments will oversee the construction of the project, which is slated for completion during the first half of 2020. A number of national retailers, including Marshalls, Old Navy, Tuesday Morning, Ulta, Famous Footwear, Five Below, Sprint and AT&T, have pre-leased space in the project.
According to 2GR Equity Principal Isaac Gregory, the project is viable because of the amount of pre-leasing — about 70% of the property so far — and residential growth along Chisholm Trail Parkway.
“It’s pretty rare to have this level of pre-leasing from credit tenants in place prior to breaking ground," Gregory said.
Edge Realty Partners will manage and lease the property. The Dallas office of Inwood National Bank provided a construction loan for its development.
Colliers International has formed a Dallas-Fort Worth multifamily investment sales team. The three-person team will be led by newly hired Senior Vice President Mark Allen.
