JLL announces sale of historic downtown Fort Worth asset

Firm successfully negotiates sale of Petroleum Building and three other XTO properties

Fort Worth, January 29, 2018 – JLL experts announced today the sale of historic downtown Fort Worth office property, the Petroleum Building, on behalf of XTO Energy Inc. The centrally located, 14-story office property and accompanying 12-story executive garage have been acquired by Sundance Square. Sundance owns and manages 35 contiguous blocks within downtown Fort Worth.

JLL Executive Vice President Ryan Matthews represented XTO Energy Inc. in the transaction and led the team's marketing efforts.

"We're very proud of the outcome," said Matthews. "XTO hoped to secure a buyer who understood the level importance the Petroleum Building has for downtown Fort Worth. Sundance Square obviously fits this profile. We know that this historic asset is in great hands."

With the closing the Petroleum Building and executive garage, JLL has now successfully completed the disposition of four of the seven XTO office properties totaling 281,204 square feet of office space in Fort Worth including:
