2GR Equity Partners, Legacy Capital acquire Fort Worth property on East Belknap

Real estate investment firm 2GR Equity LLC of Grapevine has formed a joint venture with Dallas-Fort Worth developer Legacy Capital Co. in the purchase of 4.18 acres in Fort Worth. The property is located on the northeast corner of East Belknap Street and OakHurst Scenic Drive and overlooks the Trinity River at Riverside Park.

This is the 13th transaction closed by 2GR Equity since its formation in March 2011, according to a company news release. The firm has now provided joint-venture equity on commercial real estate transactions representing $100 million in total capitalization.
