HFF Arranges Capitalization of 1.4 MSF Industrial Project Within DFW Airport
IRVING, TEXAS — HFF has arranged the capitalization of Gateway Logistics Center, a five-building, 1.4 million-square-foot industrial project underway within Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport in Irving. The site is part of the 600-acre Passport Park mixed-use project that is also being developed at the southern end of the airport. Joe Thornton and Adam Herrin of HFF arranged a joint equity partnership between Dallas-based developer Bandera Ventures and Boston-based private equity firm Long Wharf Capital for the project. Thornton and Herrin also secured an undisclosed amount of construction financing from Bank of the Ozarks. Three of the buildings will range in size from 250,000 to 380,000 square feet and feature cross-dock configurations and 32- to 36-foot clear heights. The other two buildings will measure 200,000 to 250,000 square feet and feature rear-load configurations and 28- to 32-foot clear heights. Dallas-based FA Peinado will serve as general contractor. Delivery of the buildings is expected to begin this fall.
