Office off West 7th Street changes hands

A Fort Worth investor has purchased the three-story, 43,729-square-foot office building known by its address, 200 Bailey Ave.

Hahnfeld Hoffer & Stanford Architects, a lead tenant in the building, will remain in its current location. Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announced the sale July 19. The buyer was Will Martin of W. Martin & Co. who said he plans to upgrade the building.

“It’s a great location,” Martin said.

Transwestern’s Kyle Poulson and Gibson Duwe facilitated the transaction on behalf of the seller.

“With roughly 18,000 square feet of vacant space, the buyer is planning to revamp aesthetic features of this building creating a sizable block in addition to smaller suites of office space, which is hard to find in this unique part of Fort Worth,” said Duwe. “Located in a highly desired location on the west side of Fort Worth, we are thrilled for the future of this site for the new buyer and we are excited they saw the tremendous value of this site.”

200 Bailey Ave. is in proximity to notable projects and attractions such as the Modern Art Museum and Crescent Real Estate’s upcoming $250 million Cultural District development. The acquisition of this building presented a unique opportunity to purchase an office property in a market that has maintained 86.8% occupancy with rental rates upwards of $29 per square foot throughout COVID-19.

TCCD selects firms for SE Campus redevelopment

Tarrant County College District (TCCD) has selected three leading North Texas construction firms to lead the redevelopment of its SE Campus.

Fort Worth’s Byrne Construction Services and Potere Construction and Dallas’ Hunt Construction Group were chosen based on their extensive experience and record of success, TCCD said in a news release.

The firms also demonstrated a particular commitment to the local community and to ensuring diversity and inclusion throughout all stages of the project. Under the contract, the firms will manage the construction of new building additions as well as the full renovation of existing structures, the release said.

“The Tarrant County MWBE construction and subcontractor community is the ultimate award winner represented by this JV Team,” said Andre McEwing, TCCD Supplier Diversity Manager. “The award of the TCC SE Campus CMAR project to the Byrne/Potere/Hunt JV Team represents a qualified locally diverse and inclusive construction management team representing 45% of MWBE Prime contractors (Byrne/Potere). Beyond this, they have also committed to building the MWBE subcontractor capacity with a 30% MWBE subcontractor goal. This is a tremendous moment that the entire TCC community is proud of.”

Both Byrne and Potere are certified Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) and have a heightened awareness of the significance of diverse and inclusive practices.

The mixed asset property consists of 18,130 total square feet (15,000 square feet Class B self-storage facility with a 3,130 square foot multi-tenant commercial building.   

Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), a commercial real estate brokerage firm specializing in investment sales, financing, research and advisory services, announced July 29 the sale of Eagle Mountain Self Storage, a 68,200-square foot self-storage facility in Azle.

Brandon Karr and Danny Cunningham, investment specialists in Marcus & Millichap’s Fort Worth office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a private investor. They also secured the buyer, a limited liability company.

“I began advising the seller over five years ago when he had just finished constructing the first phase of the property. Over the years, we regularly met to discuss property values and market conditions, but we always determined it was not the appropriate time to sell. However, in early 2021, it became clear that it was finally the right time to dispose of the property, Cunningham said.

“The seller was ready to move on, and the market for value-add storage facilities with expansion potential was at an all-time high. Given the property’s size, location, and future potential, our team knew exactly who the right buyer was, and we were able to successfully negotiate a price that was almost three times higher than the value the seller and I discussed five years ago,” Cunningham said.

Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI) announced July 26 the sale of two multifamily properties in Northeast Tarrant County: Spring Valley, a 150-unit apartment complex in Euless, and 154-unit Oasis Springs in Hurst.

Silva and Ford Braly, first vice president investments on the Silva Multifamily Team, represented the sellers, two Dallas-based private investors and procured the buyers, two separate Dallas-based investment groups.

“During a four-week marketing campaign, we conducted a combined total of 77 property tours, generated 48 offers and ultimately achieved pricing $3.7 million above guidance,” said Braly. “The offers came from a wide range of local and out-of-state private and institutional investors.”

Owned and operated by the same family since it was built in 1971, Spring Valley is located just south of Highway 183. The property has 12 two-story buildings, a large swimming pool, onsite laundry facilities and a generous amount of open space.
