The Deal Sheet

Holt Lunsford Co will break ground later this month on three industrial buildings (totaling 690K SF in spec space) in South Dallas.

Holt Lunsford Co is developing the project at Danieldale and South Hampton roads in the heart of the I-20 and I-35E corridor in South Dallas. HLC principal John Gorman and marketing director Canon Shoults will be leasing the property. John tells us the project is uniquely smaller than its neighbors (like 1.1M SF Seefried/USAA and the 823K SF Penn/Trammell Crow). The three buildings will be 400k SF, 150k SF, and 140k SF, John says, to meet the demands of smaller tenants. 

No leases have been inked yet, but John tells us they have some nibbles from some prospects. The South Dallas industrial submarket hovers around 7% vacancy with positive rent growth, John says. TA Associates is providing the equity. HLC has its own construction management division and the construction company is McFadden & Miller. The architect is RGA Architects; civil engineer is Pacheco Koch.
