Financing secured for newly built distribution facility in Fort Worth

JLL Capital Markets arranged financing for Meacham Commerce Center Building 1, a Class A industrial facility totaling 334,750 square feet in Fort Worth, Texas.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, McCormack Commercial, to secure the loan from Protective Life Insurance Company.

Built in 2022, the property is located north of downtown Fort Worth and is situated on 19.36 acres, allowing for 240 car parking spaces and 103 trailer parking spaces. The fully leased building has a 36-foot clear height, cross-dock loading capabilities, 60-foot staging bays, 70 dock-high doors and four drive-in ramps.

Meacham Commerce Center has access and proximity to the DFW airport and major interstates, including frontage along Interstate 35 West and near direct access to Interstate 820, two of DFWs major trade routes.

Moving forward, Meacham Commerce Center, situated on approximately 80 acres, will deliver three additional buildings adding another 977,161 square feet to the park. When complete, the three buildings will accommodate tenants ranging from 20,000 square feet to 600,000 square feet. Building configurations will be rear load and cross dock with 24- to 40-foot clear heights. Fronting I-35W will be a 69,120-square-foot rear load facility. A 582,540-square-foot cross dock is planned in the heart of the site with 325,750 square feet on its western border.  The remainder of the project will be leased by Matt Carthey and George Jennings of Holt Lunsford Commercial.
