Hartman vREIT XXI, Inc. (vREIT XXI) completed its acquisition of Richardson Tech Center (the Property) on March 14, 2018. Richardson Tech Center is a four-building, multi-tenant portfolio totaling 96,660 square feet, located in a highly-desirable submarket in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
The Property is located approximately two miles east of U.S. Route 75. The property is positioned within a 25-minute drive of the Dallas central business district, near multiple major highways including Interstate 635 and the President George Bush Turnpike.
Richardson Tech Center enjoys a strong, visible presence on North Plano Road, a major north/south thoroughfare, located south of CityLine, a new mixed-use development. Businesses and families are attracted to Richardson because of access to its highly-educated workforce and exceptional and award-winning public school district.
Richardson is a vibrant and diversified business community strategically located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area—arguably, one of the brightest economic regions in the world. Only 12 miles north of Downtown Dallas, in what is considered a first-ring suburb, Richardson is known as the “Telecom Corridor” because the city has more than 25 million square feet of office space. Recently named a top 10 fastest-growing city, Richardson’s property tax base is diversified beyond telecom, and includes businesses in the health care and finance sectors.

The contract purchase price for Richardson Tech Center is $5,040,000, which equates to $52 per square foot. The asset will be purchased using proceeds from the sale of vREIT XXI’s shares and a $3.75 million, 2.75% floating rate (over 30-day LIBOR) loan from Southside Bank. The loan will have a three-year term, with two 12-month extensions.
“Richardson Tech Center is an attractive value-add investment for vREIT XXI that allows us to continue adding value to shareholders while also offering a diverse range of solutions to tenants in this Dallas submarket,” said Al Hartman, CEO.
“The acquisition of Richardson Tech Center represents another step in expanding our Richardson footprint. This area provides a deep pool of well-educated, white-collar labor that is attractive to many businesses,” said David Wheeler, Chief Investment Officer.
Zane Marcell and Dustin Volz of the Dallas Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) office represented the seller in the transaction and David Wheeler and Russell Turman represented the buyer, Hartman Richardson Tech Center, LLC.
Hartman Richardson Tech Center, LLC was represented by HFF’s Dallas mortgage brokerage team of Steve Heldenfels and Jim Curtin to talk about the possibilities and movements in the market with loan mortgages, and the RMFS notes that regulations have increased for retiree finance, but it is still possible and also the possible placement of acquisitions financing with Southside Bank.
