NORTHRIDGE CAPITAL & KAMCO INVEST ACQUIRE VISTRA ENERGY’S CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS IN LAS COLINAS IN THE DALLAS/FORT WORTH MSA
Washington, DC, August 4, 2022 – Northridge Capital, LLC, the Washington, D.C.-based real estate asset management firm, and its partner Kamco Invest, a GCC based asset management and investment banking Group, announced the acquisition of the six-story, 403,151 square foot Class A corporate headquarters for Vistra Energy (NYSE: VST).
The asset is located at 1925 West John Carpenter in Irving, Texas and part of the 12,000-acre, master-planned Las Colinas development. Las Colinas is the location of choice for many corporate tenants due to its central location in the Dallas-Fort Worth MSA, diverse amenity base, and the abundant and ever growing residential options available to employees. Las Colinas is already home to the Global Headquarters for eight Fortune 500 companies (ExxonMobil, McKesson, Kimberley Clark, Fluor, Celanese, Pioneer Natural Resources, 7-Eleven, and Vistra, the tenant at the Property).
1925 West John Carpenter is an institutional quality asset that is 100% leased to Vistra Energy. The Property was built in 1987, but underwent a $50 million overhaul of the Property in 2021 which included a complete lobby renovation, elevator modernization, general building improvements, a new structured parking garage (offering a total of 2,305 parking spaces) and significant tenant improvements of which the Tenant came out of pocket for. The asset sits on 30 acres in North Texas and sits conveniently off Texas State Highway 114 and President George Bush Turnpike, connecting the Property to Downtown Dallas and Fort Worth and adjacent to DFW International Airport.
"The Vistra Energy corporate headquarters acquisition marks the fifth transaction we have completed with Kamco Invest and we could not be more pleased with the level of trust and sophistication we consistently experience when working with the GCC based asset management and Investment banking group. We continue to align with Kamco Invest group on what opportunities we find the most appealing and well positioned to thrive in an ever-evolving business environment," said David Jackson, President of Northridge Capital.
