This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet

Developer Realty Capital is working in partnership with Dallas-based Staubach Capital to build out the project. 

The office center will eventually host a four-story, 120K SF office building and a two-story 18K SF office property. 

Both buildings will be at the intersection of International Parkway and Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound, a three-minute drive from the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport North entrance. 

JLL’s Cannon Camp and Chris Doggett are leading all marketing and leasing efforts. Staubach Capital provided the equity and financing, and First United Bank also offered debt financing for the project. 

JLL's Doug Carignan represented the building’s first tenant, IntelliCentrics, which agreed to lease 30K SF inside the office park’s 777 International Parkway location.

“Flower Mound has established itself as an attractive area for new residents and businesses with a growing number of shops, restaurants, entertainment and residential options in the Lakeside mixed-use community,” Staubach Capital founding partner Jeff Staubach said. “Lakeside International Office Center will be the first of its kind in this part of the Metroplex, providing a premium office experience with top-of-class amenities.”

The town of Flower Mound played a critical role in fostering the project, as the city is interested in developing office product on International Parkway. 

“The town of Flower Mound deserves a ton of credit for getting behind this project and making it happen with the 380 Agreement,” Realty Capital Managing Director Jimmy Archie said. 

“Without the incentive agreement, we wouldn’t have been able to obtain the financing to build the project on a speculative nature. Once we were able to obtain the financing and announce the project to the market, our first tenant showed up to lease a portion of the project prior to us breaking ground.”

BOKA Powell is the architect, while Muckleroy & Falls is serving as general contractor.
