CTDI leases 705,955 SF at 1753 Chaplin Drive in North Texas

DALLAS, TX – Transwestern Investment Group (TIG®) today announces it has secured a full-building lease with CTDI at 1753 Chaplin Drive in Fort Worth, Texas. On behalf of one of its separately managed accounts, TIG acquired the 705,955-square-foot distribution facility in December 2018, along with a 494,041-square-foot building at 15453 Wolff Crossing.

“We are pleased to execute a full-building lease within three months of acquiring this state-of-the-art property,” said Richard Yeh, Managing Director at TIG. “In addition to the building’s location and size, CTDI was attracted to the speed with which it could move in and become operational.  It was a very efficient and collaborative lease negotiation process that took less than six weeks from start to finish.”

Completed in December 2018, the property offers a 36-foot clear height and convenient access to Interstate 35 West and U.S. Route 287 via Texas State Highway 114. Located in the Alliance submarket, it is approximately 20 miles from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The Alliance submarket is home to a large master-planned, mixed-use community developed by Hillwood. It is anchored by the Alliance Global Logistics Hub, which includes BNSF Railway and Union Pacific’s Alliance Intermodal Facility. The Northeast Tarrant County/Alliance submarket has seen significant activity this cycle, with 2 million square feet of industrial space currently under construction, according to market research from Transwestern Commercial Services. The high amount of speculative construction has pushed the overall vacancy rate above the Dallas-Fort Worth average, but a sharp uptick in fourth-quarter absorption shows an appetite for new construction, such as 1753 Chaplin Drive.

CTDI has more than 90 locations worldwide, including four in Texas. Founded in 1975, CTDI is a full-service, global engineering, repair and logistics company providing best-cost solutions to the communications industry.
