“We launched the marketing for this property in mid-April as the COVID-19 lockdown became full force. We weren’t certain how receptive the market would be to a listing, as there wasn’t really anything else for sale at the time. Utilizing our Marcus & Millichap platform, we were able to attract 11 offers despite the fact that we couldn’t even tour the property in person until the final week of marketing,” commented Silva, “We were able to deliver results exceeding our initial pricing expectations amidst the market uncertainty. This was accomplished through our team’s comprehensive and far-reaching marketing process. The buyer was able to complete their 1031 exchange and plans to make significant improvements to the exterior and unit interiors, thereby making Arbor Park a more attractive option for area renters. They assumed the existing Fannie Mae loan that had 10 years left until maturity and, by doing so, they were able to avoid capital markets uncertainty and didn’t have to put up the large reserves now required for new loans”.

EBO Marketing Inc., developer of Sandy Lake Office Park, has sold the class A suburban project to a local accounting firm after walking back its original plan to part with just one of its two buildings.

The multi-tenant office buildings, totaling 9,224 square feet, are situated on one acre at 1507 and 1529 E. Sandy Lake Rd. in Coppell. They were 75% leased at sale time.

Richmond Collinsworth, first vice president of Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services, and Jared Laake, vice president, represented the seller, who developed the office park in 2010 and has used part of the space as its headquarters from the onset.

“As the developer, EBO Marketing has an intrinsic attachment to Sandy Lake Office Park. After deep deliberations, the seller concluded it made sense to the keep the project together,” Laake says.

Sandy Lake Office Park will continue as an owner-user project. The buyer of record, JV Empire LLC, is setting up shop in 1,500 sf at 1507 E. Sandy Lake Rd., which previously was occupied by the seller. In turn, EBO Marketing is moving into 2,250 square feet in the adjacent building through a short-term sale-leaseback.

JV Empire had been searching the Coppell market for a site to lease. “Finding less than 2,500 sf and building signage on a prominent road doesn’t exist in this area,” Collinsworth says. “This is an analytical buyer who recognized the merit of acquiring a building and accruing equity versus paying a landlord.”

The Bradford team’s marketing attracted six solid offers because of Sandy Lake Office Park’s high visibility, freeway proximity and construction quality. The project is readily accessible to Interstate 35 E and President George Bush Turnpike and minutes from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Phillip Maxwell of Glacier Commercial Realty LP represented the buyer.

“This buyer really wanted both buildings for the synergy and economies of scale,” Collinsworth adds.
