DALLAS – In an off-market move, a group of emergency care physicians has snapped up an 8,160-sf urgent care facility in East Dallas, signing a 10-year lease for its second location in the Metroplex.
ER of Mesquite LLC will open in early summer at 1745 N. Belt Line Rd. in Mesquite. Leigh Richter, executive vice president of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services, represented the medical group, which had dibs on the site within days of Surepoint Emergency Center's exit.
"We quickly put in a letter of intent," Richter says, "and had a signed lease within 30 days."
Richter contacted the out-of-state landlords, MBH Mesquite LLC and MBH Newco LLC, on the same day her long-time client learned about the brand-new vacancy in the market. Direct negotiations yielded a 10-year below-market lease.
"My client is always looking for good locations," she says, "and will definitely consider additional sites."
ER of Mesquite is the third provider to occupy the project, which was developed in 2016 for First Choice ER. The 1.19-acre tract, featuring 30 parking spaces, has direct access to Belt Line Road and is readily accessible to several freeways.
Tenant improvements are underway on the brick structure – a single-story design with an ambulance entrance and rooftop back-up generator. The fully sprinklered interior boasts seven examination rooms, including separate suites for pediatrics and gynecology; newly equipped imaging and laboratory areas; and several physicians' offices, a nurses' station and patient lobby.
The group of highly specialized physicians also operates ER of Dallas at 4535 Frankford Rd., situated 24 miles northwest of the new location. Like the sister site, ER of Mesquite will be a full-service facility that operates on a 24/7 365-day basis.
