Investment Strategy

The business plan is to operate the property efficiently, distribute any available cash flow monthly to investors (expected to commence upon reaching stabilization) and create value by increasing occupancy and rental rates over the next several years given the strength of the region’s commercial real estate market, in particular, demand for flex/industrial, office and retail space. We believe the existing rental rates at the property – which now average $8.25/square foot on an NNN equivalent basis – are under market, which according to CBRE, average $13.30/square foot for flex product in the greater South Stemmons market area.(1) We believe a successful execution of our plan will ultimately enhance the property’s net operating income and create the potential for property value appreciation over a 3- to 5-year anticipated investment holding period, although there is no assurance objectives will be realized.

Forbes recently ranked the Dallas-Plano-Irving, Texas metropolitan area the 3rd fastest-growing city in the U.S. in terms of population, employment, wages and economic output.(2)   This growth is reinforced by the development of Mercer Crossing West, a $1 billion, 370-acre multi-family, residential and commercial project currently under construction just one block from Westwood Business Park. When complete, the mixed-use development will include two hotels, 3500 multi-family units, 800 single-family home sites, and 180,000 square feet of commercial space.

  • Market Presence and Expertise

The asset will be managed by Avistone Management, LLC, which currently manages two similar properties in the Dallas market representing nearly 300,000 of flex/industrial space.

Dallas Market Highlights

Although Dallas features a diversified economy with a high concentration in trade, transportation and services, as well as being one of the least expensive major American city in which to operate a business, it is also the 7th largest metro in terms of the concentration of high-tech jobs.
