Dayton Street Partners acquires 65-acre high tech manufacturing and distribution campus in Richardson

Dayton Street Partners (DSP) has acquired a 65-acre, four building, high-tech manufacturing and distribution campus in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, Texas. 

Upon close, the seller, a leading provider of IT and communications networks, signed a leaseback for 10% of the 845,000-square-foot campus while Celestica, the multinational electronics manufacturing services company, executed a lease for 672,588 square feet. The remaining 90,000 square feet is a single-story industrial facility that the seller vacated at close. DSP will immediately begin a significant renovation and repositioning the building.

In addition, the Chicago-based developer/investor plans to develop a 240,000-square-foot warehouse/distribution center on nine acres of unimproved land. Completion is expected in early 2024.

Located in the 190 Stem Corridor, the campus offers immediate access to President George Bush Turnpike Highway (Highway 190), US 75 and a highly skilled labor pool. The campus was constructed in two phases: Phase I was completed in 1990 and Phase II in 2001.

Transwestern’s Larry Serota, Mike Hardage and Nora Hogan represented the seller in the transaction.
