The Deal Sheet

The third building in Grand Oaks Business Park broke ground last week. (You break it, you buy it.) When we checked in with developer Dmac last May, its second building had just delivered at 35% leased. Those were the slow days—this newest building went into the dirt 25% pre-leased.

The Deal Sheet

Here are its Doug Meadows, Terry Nehls, and prez Lance McIntyre. (Not pictured, Don McIntyre.) The park sits on 25 acres south of Cinco Ranch in Richmond. Lance tells us Terry is finalizing two leases that will bring the first building to 100% occupancy. (The second was a BTS for SP Sports.) The latest facility is 27k SF and will deliver in May.

The Deal Sheet

Here's Three Square Design Group's rendering of the latest building. Allegiance Bank handled financing. When completed, Grand Oaks will have six buildings totaling 150k SF of tilt-wall space. Lance tells us Dmac also just started a 100k SF distribution facility for N2IT Containers in the Hobby Business Center, and just yesterday it closed the loan to build a 25k SF Fun N Fitness Gymnastics in Katy.
