State Farm’s Former Office Finds New Tenants

General Motors Financial Co. and Epic Health Services sign long-term leases in Arlington, with both companies revealing plans for their new space.

When State Farm made the move to Richardson, it left behind a large amount of vacant space at the Bardin Pointe building in Arlington. Today, Coldwell Banker Commercial Advisors DFW announced the signing of two leases that will fill a large portion of that space.

General Motors Financial Co. signed on for 46,228 square feet of first-floor space in the building that it plans to use for a call center. Construction will begin soon on the project, with an estimated move-in date of July 1. Also, Epic Health Services signed a lease for 5,897 square feet for a planned pediatric therapy facility. The healthcare services company plans to have the space ready by the third quarter of the year.

“State Farm moved, and GM’s deal was done quickly thereafter. There were several companies competing for this space,” Theron Bryant, principal of Coldwell Banker Commercial Advisors DFW, said in a statement. “It’s a rare opportunity for the landlord to be able to choose the tenant. The best terms and best credit were the dealmakers.”

CBCA DFW said that both deals are long-term leases, adding that GM Financial’s is “well beyond five years.”

The 113,000-square-foot Bardin Pointe building is 96 percent leased, with 4,000 square feet of available space. The entire second-floor has been leased by Regional Acceptance Corp. for a number of years. The two-story Bardin Pointe property is located at 1351 E. Bardin Rd.
