ARLINGTON, Texas – In back-to-back transactions, Skyline Sector 5 has leased 49,076 sf at two locations in the Great Southwest Industrial District to keep pace with its growth in the marketing and event services industry. The company has renewed 40,576 sf in GSW Distribution Center at 417 113th
St. in Arlington, situated just a few doors away from its headquarters and main creative hub. In the second lease, the company has scooped up 8,515 sf of ready-to-go office space in Centreport Place II at 4300 Amon Carter Blvd. in Fort Worth for its sister division, Sector 5 Digital. “I’ve been working with Sector 5 for a long time. It’s one of the top event marketing companies in Texas and has been growing at a particularly rapid pace in recent years,” says Jim Ferris, vice present of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services, who represented the lessee of record, JTM Ventures Inc., in both transactions. Three years ago, Skyline Sector 5 purchased a 61,000-sf office/warehouse at 525 113th
St. to house its management and experiential marketing teams. The office also served as the launch site for a digital division that now boasts 40 employees. “Sector 5 Digital has grown exponentially. The corporate presence and amenities within CentrePort Business Park were contributing factors for that location decision,” Ferris says. In the Arlington renewal, the warehouse is used as a storage and production facility for trade exhibits, corporate displays and equipment. “Proximity to my client’s owned site obviously was a factor, but we did spend some time looking at what was available in that section of the industrial park,” Ferris says. The Arlington landlord, Icon Owner Pool 6 El Paso LLC, was represented by Mark Graybill of Lee & Associates. Negotiating for Centreport’s owner, Columbia TX Amon Carter Industrial LP, was Michael Peinado of Lincoln Property Co.
