Colliers Facilitates Sale of 11-Story High-Rise Office Tower in Far North Dallas


Office Tower Represents Suburban Stability

Colliers International’s Capital Markets Team of Creighton Stark and Chris Boyd announced it has facilitated the sale of 7920 Belt Line Road, an 11-story multi-tenant office tower located at the southwest corner of Belt Line Road and Coit Road in Dallas. The 190,830 square-foot building was sold by Pillar Commercial and Blue Vista Capital Management to Uhalt Investments for an undisclosed amount. The sale included an adjacent medical pad site for potential future development.


“We have owned 7920 Belt Line since 2007 through a series of different joint venture partnerships”, said Manny Ybarra, Founder and CEO of Pillar Commercial.  “The tenant roster is made up of exceptional businesses and we are confident that Uhalt Investments will have much success with this asset.”


Built in 1983 with approximately $2.3MM of recent cosmetic and mechanical upgrades, 7920 Belt Line features a prominent North Dallas location, ample structured and surface parking, on-site security and management and conference center.


“We are thrilled with this acquisition and expect it to be the first of over one million square feet of office in DFW over the next couple years,” said Hugh Uhalt of Uhalt Investments. “We will be providing a higher level of service to our tenants while offering strong economies. In addition, Entronix, our energy management company, will significantly reduce operating costs, and act as a catalyst for significant savings to our tenants.” 


The tower’s strategic location is just minutes away from North Central Expressway and other highway thoroughfares including I-635, Dallas North Tollway, and the President George Bush Turnpike.


“7920 Belt Line represents a well-positioned and institutionally-maintained multi-tenant office tower, surrounded by numerous walkable restaurants and retail options,” said Creighton Stark, Executive Vice President with Colliers International. “Ninety percent occupied at the time of sale, the tower represents a diverse and long-tenured tenant roster, anchored by medical, insurance and financial services firms. Suburban Dallas office has responded positively to the pandemic, compared to comparable metro areas across the U.S., with the highest “back to work” employee statistics.”


Chris Boyd, Senior Vice President with Colliers International added, “This is another example of suburban Dallas office strength, reflecting strong historical occupancy and cash flow, located near positive demographics and poised for continued success going forward.”
