World’s Largest Classic Car Dealer Comes to Dallas-Fort Worth

JLL negotiates 43,751-square-foot industrial lease on behalf of Gateway Classic Cars 

DALLAS, November 12, 2015 – JLL today announced the firm has negotiated a 43,751-square-foot industrial warehouse lease on behalf of Gateway Classic Cars, the world’s largest classic and exotic car company since 1999.  The company’s new showroom is located at DFW Global Logistics Centre, within DFW International Airport at 1250 Mustang Drive in Dallas, Texas. 

JLL’s Executive Vice President Mark Nicholas, Senior Vice President Sam Weatherby and Vice President Michael Haggar negotiated the terms on behalf of the tenant.  CBRE’s First Vice President Kacy Jones and Senior Associate Steve Koldyke represented the landlord, Bandera Ventures. 

The new location will operate as a consignment showroom where cars can be stored before being sold online. 

“Gateway Classic Cars wanted to be centrally located in the Metroplex so its business could easily access high-net worth individuals who are interested in collecting or trading classic and exotic cars,” said Weatherby.   “From the very beginning we were focused on the area surrounding the airport so they could pull customers from Dallas and Fort Worth.”

Gateway Classic Cars is currently going through an aggressive expansion phase.  Over the past 16 years the company has opened ten showrooms throughout the United States, and continues to operate on a global scale.
