The site – zoned neighborhood commercial – has been on the market roughly two years. During that timeframe, two other contracts fell out because of local resistance to prospective buyers’ plans for commercial developments.

The acreage boasts 305 feet of frontage along Eastchase Parkway and 240 feet along John T. White Road. From a development perspective, the site is strategically situated midway between Fort Worth and Dallas.

“Coming out of the pandemic, the buyer needed to be someone who was able to close and then go through the rezoning process,” Blais says. “This buyer checked all the boxes and was able to move forward on the closing.”
