Hines expands North Texas portfolio with purchase of DFW East Logistics Center – Dallas Business Journal

Hines, a Houston-based international real estate firm, has expanded its footprint in North Texas with the acquisition of a property near DFW International Airport.

The company announced this week its purchase of the DFW East Logistics Center for an undisclosed amount. The 259,555-square-foot property encompasses three buildings on an 18-acre site adjacent to the airport, between Highways 114 and 183.

Currently, the property is just 15-percent leased to two tenants, Universal Health Services and Bisco Industries, leaving 220,000 square feet up for grabs. Stream Realty Partners is working with Hines to sign additional tenants.

“We are excited to add this property and location to the Hines logistics portfolio, which is now approaching 2 million square feet,” Hines Director Connor Tamlyn said in a prepared statement. “We look forward to significantly expanding our logistics presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.”

Jonathan Bryan and Randy Baird at CBRE represented the seller in Hines’ purchase.
