Dallas investment fund plans to renovate newly purchased Irving office building

An Irving office building leased by Stream Realty Partners since 2010 has been sold to a Dallas-based real estate private equity fund.

Reserve Capital Partners, in partnership with Trinity Investors, purchased Crestview Tower at 105 Decker Court from Austin-based CapRidge Partners. The new owner has hired Dallas architectural firm Entos Design to completely reimagine the building’s entry, lobby, fitness center, tenant lounge, and outdoor patio. Reserve Capital’s construction team will oversee the multi-million-dollar renovation featuring design elements such as wood-slatted accent walls and ceilings, modern pendant lighting, and stylized directional wall graphics. Furniture, artwork, carpets, and wallpapers will boast warm, earth-tone colors. The project is expected to take approximately four months once plans are finalized. Financing for the project was provided by Southside Bank Senior Vice President for Commercial Real Estate Jonathan Ferrell.

Reserve Capital will retain Stream, a national commercial real estate firm offering an integrated platform of services, to lease the 12-story building in the booming Las Colinas submarket. Executive Vice President and Partner Tim Terrell and Managing Director Rhett Miller of Stream Dallas serve as the leasing agents.

Sason acquires first DFW office properties, plans $2.5 million renovation

A New York and Miami-based real estate investor has acquired an Irving office complex and announced a $2.5 million renovation project to begin this year. 

Sason, a privately controlled real estate investment firm with a proven record of transforming office assets, acquired 104 and 106 Decker Court in Irving in Q4 of 2022 to mark its first Dallas-area purchase. The buildings and surrounding property have been rebranded as Cascade (I & II) and are set to receive a complete facelift beginning in Q1. The complex offers a total of 97,855 square feet.

Stream Realty Partners Vice President Chase Lopez and Associate Patrick Cruz will provide leasing services for the assets. Stream is a national real estate services, development, and investment firm headquartered in Dallas.

To encourage productivity and collaboration, an outdoor pavilion for lounging, work and events connecting the two buildings will be created as part of the broader capital program. The lobby and other common areas will be completely reimagined, and a state-of-the-art athletic club will be introduced for tenants. Exterior improvements and refreshed landscaping are also planned.

Cascade is located off Highway 114 and North O’Connor Boulevard, with both buildings overlooking the scenic Las Colinas Country Club Golf Course. Exterior balconies on the first two floors give tenants an additional place to take calls and meet. Tenants currently enjoy underground covered parking. The area also offers an abundance of convenient locations within a one-mile radius including banks, gyms, fitness studios, and dining experiences. 

“The vision that the Sason Organization has created will transform the market perception of not only the complex but the entire neighborhood,” Lopez said. “The cosmetic enhancements and on-site experience will be second to none. Stream is thrilled to partner with Sason on this redevelopment.”

Las Colinas saw 156,816 square feet of positive absorption in Q3 of 2022. Tenants needing smaller floor plates are “flocking to the area, and landlords are seeing great success by catering to these tenants’ needs by managing vacancy prep, outfitting spec suites, and prioritizing lobby renovations,” Lopez said.
