The Alliance Area of Fort Worth has pretty much remained the same with regards to commercial real estate for a good many years. Oh sure, there have been new buildings, new offices, new warehouses, new shops for rent and new retail establishments, but it all has just been a continuation of a real estate trend started many decades ago.
Take this as a truth: almost all business parks look the same.
Take this as another truth: almost all strip malls looks the same.
The individual businesses in the business parks may change; the individual businesses in the strip malls may change; the advertising and signage may change; but the basic design and structure in a business park or strip mall, that almost always follows a successful formula established many, many years ago. You take a block or two of city property, you lay down one long continual slab of concrete for a foundation, and then you partition off individual structures, all connected and all looking basically the same.
You may have never noticed it in the past, but now that it’s been pointed out to you, it’s hard to ignore the truth. And it’s easy to understand why this is so. Developers build business parks and strip malls to make money, and that means lower construction costs using winning formulas in the construction business, cutting costs wherever possible, cutting corners whenever possible.
That is why this new business park in the Alliance area, Box Office Warehouse Suites, is so exciting and why we make the claim that it changes the real estate scene in the Alliance area and, in fact, in all of Fort Worth. You see, Box Office Warehouse Suites is the first, and only, business park constructed with shipping containers.
The future has arrived and its name is Box Office Warehouse Suites!
Here’s what is about to happen in the industrial real estate world of Fort Worth: developers are going to keep a very close eye on Box Office Warehouse Suites. It already has some credibility because it was built by Ron Sturgeon, local entrepreneur and one of the biggest players in commercial real estate in Fort Worth, so developers are interested for sure. They will watch it, make note of the occupancy rates, talk to those who are leasing there and get their input, and then, sooner rather than later, another developer will make the decision to build his own business park out of shipping containers, and then container business parks will sprout up on the Texas prairie like a field of bluebonnets.
This is all inevitable because Box Office Warehouse Suites is a great idea. Happy Bank ATM Center, one of its anchor tenants, thinks so, as does Salon & Spa Galleria, another of its anchor tenants. Toss in the weight of Ron Sturgeon, the uniqueness of the site, and competitive retail lease prices, and the overall good vibes of the place, and it is easy to understand why we call this a game-changer in commercial real estate in the Fort Worth area.
