LifeGift broke ground on Tuesday, Jan. 31 on a new building at 1000 12th Ave. in Fort Worth.

LifeGift’s new 14,000-square-foot office will more than double the size of its current 6,934-square-foot office space. 

“The construction of the new Fort Worth building is a huge milestone for LifeGift,” said Kevin Myer, president and CEO of LifeGift. “The capabilities of this building and ideal location in the Medical District will help us offer more hope to donor families, transplant recipients and those waiting on the gift of life.”

The NAI Robert Lynn Office Division represented LifeGift in the relocation and leasing

For LifeGift to operate out of one facility, the growing service needed a larger office building with the ability to accommodate in-house surgical suites for tissue recovery, according to the organization. Colt Power, office division vice president at NAI Robert Lynn, aided the organization in strategically selecting a site near multiple hospitals for convenient transfers of donors to LifeGift’s tissue recovery suites. Additionally, Colt coordinated the arrangement for the specially designed, build to suit property required for LifeGift’s unique operation requirements.

“I’m very fortunate to play a small part in the success of a great organization that provides hope to those in need,” said Power. “After finding the perfect location for a new facility, LifeGift will have the ability to service a higher number of patients each day and successfully complete thousands more lifesaving transplants.”

LifeGift is one of three organ procurement organizations in the state of Texas that facilitate organ and tissue recovery. As the federally designated organ and tissue recovery agency for North, Southeast and West Texas, it partners with more than 200 hospitals across 109 Texas counties.

Power represented LifeGift in the lease negotiations with the property owner, Steve Hawkins. LifeGift is partnering with Hawkins Construction to serve as the general contractor and developer of the property. The new building is expected to be open by the end of the year.
