The Deal Sheet

KTR Capital Partners plans to deliver 502k SF of spec industrial space by year’s end in the Railhead Industrial Park. It will be the only newly built Class-A warehouse available inside Loop 820, Bisnow learned first. (The Class-A warehouses there now will have to haze it.)

The Deal Sheet

Here’s Holt Lunsford Commercial’s Donnie Rohde and Matt Carthey (who will handle leasing along with colleague Jim Brice) along with KTR's John Clowney at the property. Meacham Crossing at 4601 Gold Spike in Fort Worth will be divisible between 183k SF to 373k SF to the full 502k SF. This site is only two miles west of North Loop 820 and I-35W. Donnie tells us North Fort Worth has shown consistent growth since coming out of the recession and has consistently been in the top three of the nine DFW submarkets for the last two years with the lowest quarterly vacancy and highest net absorption numbers. North Fort Worth has also attracted companies such as Amazon and Walmart, he says.  

The Deal Sheet

This building has a unique story, Donnie says. Construction started in 2007 by Con Agra Foods, but changes in corporate strategy led the company to abandon the project when it was about 40% complete. The building was subsequently sold to Frac Tech Services in 2011 as a site for its industrial pump manufacturing operations. KTR bought the building in early 2014 and immediately began putting the wheels in motion to finish the project. Donnie says this area has quick access to highways, rail, and air cargo, and a strong skilled labor pool.
