SkyWalker Property Partners Buys Office Property in Arlington
ARLINGTON, TEXAS — In an all-cash transaction, SkyWalker Property Partners has acquired a 72,518-square-foot, Class A office building in Arlington. The property is the first for the company’s Opportunity Knocks Fund in preparation for the launch of a major capital campaign in June. The 40 percent leased office building at 701 Highlander Blvd. is located on the city’s south side, close to Arlington Highlands and Parks Mall. The 4.6-acre property includes a T-Mobile cell tower. At least $400,000 will be invested into addressing deferred maintenance and upgrading the 30-year-old structure. Roughly $150,000 is earmarked to remediate waterproofing issues with the roof, windows and granite-clad skin panels. The lobby will be getting new lighting, finishes and furniture. Upgrades are also planned for elevator cabs and common areas. The exterior plan calls for a new monument sign and landscaping improvements. Work is expected to get underway within 30 days. Twenty-six tenants-in-common investors, known as TIC-Highlander Building LLC, sold the five-story office building. The buyer, This Land is Highland, was represented by Gary Walker of Coldwell Banker Commercial Alliance DFW, along with Colt Power and Grant Irvin of NAI Robert Lynn. Paul Getty of Sperry Van Ness/First Guardian Group of San Jose, Calif., acted on behalf of the sellers.
