Younger Partners Brings Rare 707-Acre Parcel to Market

The offering provides an exceptional opportunity for investment and development in this expanding
Central Texas region

TEMPLE, Texas (July 9, 2024) – Younger Partners Executive Managing Director John St. Clair and Senior Vice President Michael Ytem have brought the 700+ acre Bell County 707 Ranch, in the fast-growing city of Temple, to the market for immediate sale.

Located about 128 miles south of Dallas and 74 miles north of Austin, the Central Texas tract is currently zoned for agricultural use and offers rare and compelling commercial and residential opportunities in a fast-growing Texas city.

The 707-acre parcel is at West Adams Avenue and Texas 317, two of Temple’s main arteries, just minutes from Interstate 35. On-site amenities include an operational horse ranch, a working stone quarry and several natural springs. Also included is a 4,000-square-foot, 19th-century house built from stones sourced from the land and remodeled in 2015.

“The sellers held the land for decades,” St. Clair said. “Potential buyers expressed interest in the site in the past, but it wasn’t for sale until now.”

The location is in the growth path for Temple, he added. The city has an active health and life sciences sector, anchored by Baylor Scott & White Health. Temple also attracts companies active in the technology and financial services arenas. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population increased by 13.4% between 2020 and 2023 to more than 93,000 and is anticipated to reach 100,000 residents by spring 2025.

“Temple’s growth has moved west and gone as far as it can,” Ytem said. “Ranch 707 is between that growth and Lake Belton, which is the property’s western edge.”

The acreage offers a convenient location, situated close to new retail outlets and educational institutions while offering the peace and serenity of the agricultural land. Ranch 707 is also the only parcel of its size available in the immediate area.

St. Clair said the land would be ideal for residential and commercial mixed-use purposes, both of which are in demand. “It’s also a great investment that could offer a good long-term hold strategy,” St. Clair said.

Ytem added that its strategic location also provides an opportunity for a business park with retail and residential components. “It’s about 1.5 hours away from Austin and two or so hours from Dallas,” he said. “With the massive growth along the I-35 corridor and more connectivity between these cities, this ‘tweener’ position could be an ideal home base for companies that do business in both cities.”

St. Clair and Ytem said that Ranch 707 would be an ideal opportunity for an imaginative developer or investor who understands and appreciates the growth occurring west of I-35 in Temple.

 “Although Younger Partners is a Dallas-based company, we have successfully transacted Austin-area deals,” St. Clair added. “We anticipate this offering will attract much attention.”

We already oversee the property management for three other Dallas buildings they own – Brookriver Executive Center I & II, Woodview Tower, and Wellington Centre,” Grainger added. “It is a testament to our outstanding team of professionals that we have been awarded this additional assignment.”

Younger Partners Managing Principal Sean Dalton, Senior Vice President Parker Morgan, and Co-Managing Partner Kathy Permenter will oversee the leasing efforts for the project.

“Discerning tenants will appreciate the building’s unobstructed views, which include downtown Dallas, the Las Colinas Country Club and the surrounding Urban Center,” Dalton said. “Additionally, area amenities are some of the best in class. 500 E. John Carpenter is just minutes

from the Toyota Music Factory and Water Street mixed-use developments, restaurants, hotels and golf courses.”

“This building offers prospective tenants amazing amenities, as well as a great location in Las Colinas,” said Koa Partners Chief Executive Officer Harry Lake.  “We strive to offer office space that provides solutions to companies looking to attract and retain top-quality talent, all while emphasizing our core value of stewardship. We have great faith in Sean, Kathy and Parker to make matches that benefit tenants and Koa, alike.”

Morgan said the building offers tenants a spacious conference center equipped with A/V, ample lounge seating, a full-service café, a fitness center with locker rooms and showers, picnic tables and 24-hour building security.

Built in 1986 and renovated in 2009, the building features 44,000-square-foot floor plates on the first three floors with 16,000-square-foot floor plates on floors four through eight.

NTCAR’s Newest Hall of Fame Inductees

Bill Vanderstraaten and Scott Rohrman were inducted as hall of fame members, while Jack Fraker and Robert Grunnah earned recognition for their lifetime achievements.

As of 2019, it took exactly 288 pages to tell the story of North Texas Commercial Real Estate. That number is about to grow.  

Bound in a textured forest-green, the cover of “The Book” features silver-embossed letters, all capitalized, that spell out its title. It tells the story of the region from the context of the people who helped shape it: giants like Trammell Crow, Henry S. Miller Jr., Roger Staubach, Ray L. Hunt and the Stemmons family. The volume’s intent is summed up on page 5: “We strongly believe in the fact that those committed to a successful future must have an appreciation of the past.”  

Iconic Stemmons Towers Sale Earns Finalist Recognition as One of the Best 2023 Property Sales in DFW

Younger Partners’ Stemmons Towers sale earned finalist consideration for D CEO’s 2024 Commercial Real Estate Awards in the category of Best Commercial Property Sale alongside NOVEL Turtle Creek, Qorvo Semiconductor and Texas Osprey Portfolio. The CRE firm was also named a finalist in the Dallas Business Journal’s 2024 Best Real Estate Deals in the Commercial Property Sale category, alongside CityLine campus sale, Link Logistics acquisition of Stockbridge business parks and the Plaza of the Americas sale.

Both news organizations selected the iconic four-story four-building Stemmons Towers project for the awards competitions. The historic 285,312 SF project, on 13 acres, at 2700 N. Stemmons Freeway in Dallas was sold to Sava Holdings Ltd. Younger Partners Executive Managing Director John St. Clair and Managing Principal Trae Anderson represented the seller, 2700 Stemmons LP, in the transaction.

“Though we did not end up winning either award, it is an honor to be recognized alongside other transactions of such high caliber,” St. Clair said. “Congratulations to Richardson’s CityLine for its selection by both the D CEO and DBJ BRED awards.”

“We are proud of the work we did in this transaction and can’t wait to see how Sava transforms these buildings,” Anderson added.

Built in the 1960s, the Stemmons Towers have a storied history of being one of the first Dallas high-rise office projects outside of downtown. This project will be one to watch with the transformation of a highly visible four-building office campus on I-35 into a residential complex with 10+ acres of park-like landscaping and amenities.

The location stretching along Stemmons Freeway near the Medical District and Dallas Love Field in conjunction with the property’s iconic history and architecture makes this a prime redevelopment site for Sava Holdings. A huge thank you to Sava Holdings for making the shrewd decision to reposition the properties.

10-Acre Land Parcel Near DFW Airport Acquired

Infill Parcel in Euless has Potential for Light Industrial Users

EULESS, Texas (April 16, 2024) –  Windhaven Investments Inc. acquired a 9.98-acre infill parcel at 3300 FM 157 in Euless, Texas, near Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Younger Partners Executive Managing Director John St. Clair and Associate Luke Nolan brokered the deal between the buyer and seller, Clubwise Finance LP. The sale price was not disclosed.

Zoned light industrial, the acreage fronts Euless’ major north/south FM 157 route. The land’s proximity to DFW Airport and access to Texas Highways 10 and 183 generated potential buyer interest but “Windhaven had the confidence in the tract to close it,” St. Clair said.

The current buyer got the deal across the finish line with plans to hold the land for investment, potentially repositioning it for future sale or attracting developers.

“During the past decade, industrial developers have been focused on larger buildings of at least 200,000 square feet or more,” St. Clair said. 

However, Nolan said, the land on FM 157 provides an excellent opportunity to develop smaller buildings that are in demand, thus attracting industrial tenants who don’t require large amounts of square footage.

“That was a big part of the appeal of this transaction,” Nolan added. “This is a great piece of real estate for smaller light-industrial buildings. The new owner won’t have a shortage of tenants or buyers.”

Younger Partners Brokers 76-Acre Land Sale in Growing Grayson County

GRAYSON COUNTY, Texas (April 10, 2024) – Investment Catalysts LLC of Southlake, Texas, acquired 75.9 acres on Farm-to-Market Road 1417 in Grayson County, about 70 miles north of Dallas, with the intent to hold the parcel for investment purposes.

Younger Partners Executive Managing Director John St. Clair, Associate Davis Willoughby and Executive Vice President Tyler Hemenway represented the seller, the Estate of Douglas Lee Shankles. The sale price was not disclosed.

“This land acquisition represents perfect timing by the buyer,” St. Clair said. “They made this purchase right there in the bullseye, where everyone is looking for this type of land today. The estate has additional tracts nearby that are available and just as desirable.”

Grayson County borders Oklahoma and is reachable from other parts of Texas via U.S. highways 75 and 377 (north/south), U.S. Highway 82 (east/west) and multiple state highways and farm-to-market roads. The county also benefits from Lake Texoma, one of America’s largest reservoirs, multiple farm-to-market roads, and Texas highways, Hemenway said. The infrastructure and Lake Texoma attracted the interest of Texas Instruments and GlobiTech, who are building multibillion-dollar chip plants near the county seat of Sherman, Texas.

Because of all of these factors, Younger Partners has received significant interest in the land tract, which fronts FM 1417, a major north-south route, Willoughby said.

“Light distribution or light manufacturing companies will need access to these chip plants,” St. Clair said. “The Shankles tract is well-suited for this purpose. Investment Catalysts is the ideal buyer because of its excellent reputation, the best offer and its ability to close.”

“The buyer has a reputation of getting things done and paid a good price for the land,” Hemenway added. “They’re placing money in the path of growth and have an outstanding exit strategy.”

Joining Kathy on the executive committee, Michael will serve as the Associate Leadership Council (ALC) Class Representative.

Members benefit from proprietary industry resources and customized services.

In his role, Andrew hopes to enhance business opportunities by creating favorable circumstances for people to get to know each other and do business together. He values spending time with other board members and appreciates each member’s expansive professional network and knowledge within the industry.

2024 Board of Director / NTCAR

“I believe there are many varying recipes for success,” Andrew says about his membership. “Two key ingredients are education within an industry and involvement within the industry.  Being on the NTCAR board allows me to get to know the people I want to do business with, not just a voice on the phone or a faceless email signature. More importantly than that, service on the board allows me to promote and improve the broad array of NTCAR initiatives which afford members more opportunities for making long-term business connections.”

With his emphasis on a personal touch in business, Andrew demonstrates the importance of putting a face to a business transaction.

“Andrew is the only currently serving board member who exclusively has a land focus. Though it was not intentional, it puts Andrew in a great place to be the household expert on land-exclusive opportunities,” said Younger Partners Executive Managing Director John St. Clair.

At Younger Partners, Andrew is known for cultivating collaborative partnerships between the landowner and developer. His specialty is finding and assembling off-market opportunities for investors and developers in sought-after submarkets in North Texas. Through the years, Andrew’s efforts have proven his ability to focus on an area considered by many to be too picked over, and quickly pull out off-market opportunities with willing sellers, previously unknown to investors and developers. The results of his work are mutually beneficial arrangements between landowners and developers, maximizing returns for both. Andrew’s present-oriented approach and industry knowledge make him a great asset to the NTCAR Board of Directors.

58 Acres of Prime Southwest Fort Worth Land Sold

FORT WORTH, Texas (Feb. 21, 2024) – Younger Partners Principal Carter T. Crow and Senior Vice President Michael Ytem brokered the sale of 58 acres at 5921 South Freeway in Fort Worth on behalf of an undisclosed seller. Justin Toon with Industrial Reserve represented the buyer, which plans to use the site for future development.

The property, near the intersection of Interstates 20 and 35W, has ramp access to both roads. The acreage is within easy access to major southwest Fort Worth employers including Alcon Laboratories, Miller Coors and Ben E. Keith Foods.

“This property possesses great potential for the buyer with its location near major roadways in a fast-growing area of the southwest Metroplex,” Crow said.

“The continuum of a competitive market has forced developers to look at geographic areas they would have initially put on the back burner,” Ytem said. “The southern sectors of both Tarrant and Dallas counties have kept me busy.”

Cities near the just-sold property, including Burleson, Everman and Crowley, have been attracting more people and businesses over the past five years, Ytem said. This makes the crossroads of I-20 and I-35W a prime target for owners and developers interested in taking advantage of this growth.

Fort Worth Texas
By FWTX Staff
11:37 AM on Jan 30, 2024

he Fred’s Texas Café era in the West Seventh corridor is now officially complete.

The 6,500-square-foot property at 915 Currie St., once home to the renowned carefree Fort Worth burger watering hole, has been sold to Younger Partners, the Dallas commercial real estate firm announced on Tuesday morning.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The firm said that it had not decided on a specific redevelopment plan for the property.

The acquisition expands Younger Partners’ footprint in the Artisan Circle, formerly known as Crockett Row, a mixed-use urban village covering five blocks in the southeast quadrant of University Drive and West Seventh. Younger Partners investments acquired the development in August 2022 with plans to infuse millions of new capital. 

“We believe in the transformative power of real estate, and with this acquisition, we are poised to bring additional positive changes that will enrich the entire community,” said Kathy Permenter, co-managing partner of Younger Partners, in a statement.

The sellers were Fred’s original owners, JD and Gari Chandler. The original Fred’s restaurant opened in 1978, but the property has been home to a series of diners and cafes since the 1940s. Quincy Wallace, the new owner and operating partner, closed this location in 2021, opening a new location on Camp Bowie the next year. Another store is located on Western Center in north Fort Worth. 

Younger Partners recently unveiled a comprehensive revitalization plan for Artisan Circle, which includes enhancements such as new gathering spaces, improved wayfinding, updated signage, and enhanced accessibility.

The development extends to Foch Street on the east and Morton to the south.

“Our vision extends beyond the property lines — it’s about fostering growth, creating value, and ensuring that Artisan Circle becomes an even more integral part of the fabric of Fort Worth’s Cultural District,” Permenter said. “We are excited about the possibilities this acquisition presents for the neighborhood and look forward to playing a key role in its continued development.”

Younger Partners specializes in the acquisition and disposition of land, multifamily, office, industrial and retail properties.

Four high-rises near Southwestern Medical District set for redo into residential.

Dallas Morning News
By Steve Brown
2:07 PM on Dec 14, 2023

A landmark Dallas office tower development will get new life as a residential community.

The Stemmons Towers northwest of downtown were originally built by legendary Dallas developers John Stemmons and Trammell Crow. The white concrete and glass towers were patterned after post-World War II modern buildings the developers had toured in Europe and South America. Several of the buildings have small floors with wide roof overhangs between each level.

The more than 13-acre office campus on Stemmons Freeway just sold to Sava Holdings Ltd., an Irving-based hotel development firm. Sava Holdings plans to convert the four office high-rises into an apartment project called the Lumiere.

It’s the latest example of developers reusing older office buildings in Dallas for new residential space.
