ARLINGTON, Texas – Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services has locked in five transactions, including three expansions, at Arlington Downs Tower, shoring up 17,498 sf office space for the long term in a two-week round of leasing.
Bradford's leasing team has nudged occupancy to 86.14% in the 87,411-sf building at 2225 E. Randol Mill Rd. in Arlington's Entertainment District. The leasing rally, dominated by renewals, included one deal that quadrupled the size of the tenant's office.
"Given the challenges of today's office sector, these five deals are a testament to the stability of a suburban product," says Erik Blais, senior vice president of the Dallas-based brokerage firm. He and Richmond Collinsworth, senior vice president and managing partner, lease Bradford ADT Partners LLC's newly acquired asset.
Longtime tenant Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission has signed the largest deal in the stack, renewing 10,064 sf for its regional office. Jim Montgomery of Swearingen Realty Group represented the state agency.
Also renewing was Men N Motion, which occupies 1,082 sf. Tynna Dixon of Henderson Realty Group LLC represented the men's clothing and accessories shop.
The Bradford team negotiated directly with the remaining tenants. Details for the triple expansion play are:
▪ Blessed Hands Phlebotomy, 2,476 sf, a renewal and expansion to quadruple the office size in a relocation from a 613-sf office within the building;
▪ D4C Dental Brands Inc., 2,373 sf, signing a 771-sf expansion lease running concurrently with its existing pact;
▪ Hispanic Law Firm, 1,503 sf, leasing 588 sf of contiguous space in a renewal and expansion.
"Arlington Downs Tower's tenants have a history of longevity in the project," Collinsworth says. "It's an entrepreneurial-type building in an excellent location."
