Wave your hand farewell to the last commercial tract of land at the Clearfork West development in southwest Fort Worth. It's been grabbed by a hand surgeon.
According to a release, a $7.9 million two-story medical office building is in the works, with 50 percent leased to Dr. Nathan Lesley, a noted orthopedic hand surgeon based in Fort Worth.
That leaves 10,100 square feet still available for lease. You could be mere feet away from the handy Dr. Lesley.
The project will be a short drive from the Fort Worth medical district, where Lesley has his current office in the Fort Worth Hand Center.
SkyWalker Property Partners, an Arlington-based investment group, has already begun work on the site. President Gary Walker says they were originally looking for a property to repurpose before they decided to build from scratch.
"We were fortunate to be able to acquire this site, which is an ideal location for his expanding practice," Walker says.
Lesley signed a 10-year lease for the entire second level to house his practice and physical therapy clinic, The Hand & Upper Extremity Institute, which will be a one-stop shop for all your hand needs, not to mention your upper extremities.
The architect is 97w, a local design firm, and Frost Bank is the project lender.
While the area has become known for the Shops at Clearfork and the new Neiman Marcus, there are other medical providers nearby, including endodontics, pediatric dentistry, the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Institute, and Sanctuary Yoga Room.
They all sit within the historic boundary of Edwards Ranch, the 7,000-acre spread and largest family-owned holding in the metro's southwest corridor.
Cassco, the Edwards family's development arm since 1954, has 850 acres left to develop. That includes 270 acres earmarked for Clearfork on the northern bank of the Trinity River; and 320 for Riverhills on the southern side.
Clearfork is master-planned for 3.2 million sf of upscale office, retail, and restaurant space, 2,500 multifamily units, and green space stretching for miles along the riverfront. Riverhills is a high-end, five-phase development of single-family estate homes.
