Los Angeles-Based Firm Acquires Iconic Trammell Crow Center

Plus: H-E-B breaks ground on 118,000-square-feet store in McKinney; McCormack Commercial's 1.3 million industrial development in Fort Worth; and more.

Regent Properties has acquired the Trammell Crow Center, a 50-story, 1.2 million-square-foot office tower located at 2001 Ross Ave. in Downtown Dallas. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the Dallas Morning News reports that the skyscraper may have fetched a hefty price tag of upwards of $600 million.

Regent purchased the skyscraper from a group of institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Global Alternatives. The sale includes a retail building and parking garage across the street, according to the release.

The purchase of this iconic asset, during a period of market dislocation, reflects our view that sustained demand for these best-in-class office towers will continue.”
