Leigh Richter with Bradford Commercial Real Estate.

FARMERS BRANCH, TX- Maxim Integrated Products Inc. disposed of 1.6 acres, complete with a 3,600-square-foot building and longtime tenant American Medical Response Ambulance Service Inc. in place to a local limited liability company. The transaction is Maxim’s third in less than a month, and involves the company’s ongoing disposition of the 45-acre campus that once was home to Dallas Semiconductor Corp.

“If the tenant moves out, the buyer could occupy it,” says Leigh Richter, senior vice president of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services in a press release. “It’s a very desirable property for a user.” The property at 4355 N. Beltwood Pkwy. is fenced on three sides, and includes a 760-square-foot vehicle servicing area and 720-square-foot utility building.

“We had a lot of interest in this building. Within a day or two of pricing it, we had an offer,” says Richter, who partnered with Jason Miller, Bradford’s market director, to close the deal.

Matt Mittendorf of the Certus Group represented the buyer, 4355 Beltwood Parkway LLC, a neighboring company that had been keeping its eye on the Maxim disposition for the right property to hit the market.

California-based Maxim inherited the 45-acre, 13-building campus in 2001 when it acquired Dallas Semiconductor Corp. The flex buildings, developed in the 1970s and 1980s, housed Maxim’s research and development functions, which moved last year to a brand-new 138,000-sf class A office building on 18.5 acres of the campus.
