Jones Lang LaSalle Awarded the Exclusive Leasing Assignment at Interchange Office Center in North Dallas

Signage Opportunity in a Premier Location along the Dallas North Tollway

DALLAS, August 20, 2013 — It has been fewer than 30 days since Brookwood Financial Partners purchased Interchange Office Center (IOC), and the real estate investment and asset management firm has already awarded the exclusive leasing assignment of the property to Jones Lang LaSalle.  The IOC is a 150,596-square-foot, multi-tenant, Class-A office building located 16 miles north of downtown Dallas, at the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and the George Bush Turnpike.   

The three-story building was renovated in 2007 and IOC was awarded an Energy Star label in 2010.  The IOC features a state-of-the-art fitness center, 80-person training and conference center, 24/7 security system, on-site management, canopy covered parking and signage opportunities.  It is located 20 minutes from DFW International Airport and within proximity to several hotels and restaurants.        

JLL Senior Vice President Jay Bailey and Associate Clint Coe will oversee all leasing and marketing efforts on behalf of the landlord.  Bailey previously leased the IOC on behalf of CBREI from 2008-2011.  During that time he negotiated space for several key tenants including Valtech, Kaye Bassman, Aircom and Disys.

“We plan to build upon the momentum of the new ownership and relationships with IOC’s current tenants and to make an impact at the building,” said Bailey.

According to JLL research, the Far North Dallas submarket has consistently recorded healthy positive net absorption over the past several quarters and is one of the fastest recovering submarkets in the Metroplex.  The vacancy rate at the end of the second quarter of 2013 was 16.8 percent, significantly lower than Dallas’ total vacancy rate, which was 20.9 percent.
