JLL Negotiates 415,000-Square-Foot Renewal on Behalf of Standard Motor Products

DALLAS, November 4, 2015 – JLL today announced the firm negotiated the renewal of a 415,000-square-foot industrial lease at 1801 Waters Ridge in Lewisville, Texas, on behalf of Standard Motor Products (SMP).  The property is 100 percent occupied by SMP and operates as a corporate headquarters and central distribution hub for surrounding markets.  

JLL’s Managing Director Tom McCarthy, Vice President Forshey Hoobler and Associate Elizabeth Jones represented the tenant.  CBRE’s Steve Trese and Wilson Brown represented the landlord, TIAA. 

According to JLL research, demand for space in the third quarter remained strong with 2.4 million square feet of net absorption. 
“The industrial market is beginning to shift toward equilibrium between our supply and demand,” said Hoobler.  “And, while that might cause an uptick in asking rents for the immediate future, I expect that rents will remain relatively flat over the next consecutive quarters.”
