The leasing rally includes two headquarters, including the41,225-sf expansion by a tenant right across the street,Dr. PepperSnapple Group Inc. John Brownlee, senior vice president andpartner of Dallas-based Koll, tells GlobeSt.com that themulti-tenant drive for the one-time, single-tenant building at 5360Legacy Dr. has been so successful that a second 396,715-sfstructure is ticketed to go the same route.

Koll Development originally started chasing one large tenant forthe campus, and then swung one building to a multi-tenant marketingblitz. The campus' third building, in all likelihood, will be theonly one banked for a single tenant, Brownlee says.

Dr. Pepper Snapple, signing a five-year lease, is taking nearlyall of a 55,000-sf first-floor wing in the three-story building.Move-in is planned for mid-August. Brownlee negotiated the dealwith Paul Malton, the inbound tenant's director of real estate.

World Ventures grabbed the entire third floor of its wing,taking as-is space in a six-year lease with just a minor retrofitplanned for the former EDS Agility space. Brownlee says the firmwill get keys in mid- to late August. The travel agency is comingout of less than 20,000 sf at Preston Park Financial Center at13355 Noel Rd. in Dallas, according to Brownlee. The tenant rep wasMatt Hurlbut with Transwestern Dallas.

Taking 12,683 sf is Group360 Inc., a St. Louis-based packagingdesign firm. Brownlee says the company leased 6,800 sf one year agofor a regional office on the first floor of another one of thebuilding's four wings. He says the reworked deal has a four-yearterm, with occupancy planned for mid-July. Independent brokerMichael Neitzel of Dallas represented Group360.

Brownlee says MarketNet Inc., coming in mid-August, took 10,185sf in a five-year lease. The company has been working in 7,000 sfat 15433 Noel Trail Dr. in Keller Springs. MarketNet hadDallas-based Henry S. Miller Commercial's executive vice presidentDarrell Hurmis and associate Garrett Inman doing itsbargaining.

Just settling in is Teleca USA Inc., which took 7,800 sf, alsoon the first floor. Jonathan Hill of Finley Morrow in Dallasnegotiated the five-year lease for the tenant, which vacated anoffice at 1800 Preston Park Blvd. in Dallas.

Brownlee says the Campus at Legacy is the largest open block ofclass A space in Dallas/Fort Worth. The 5360 Legacy Dr. buildinghas 40,000 sf of contiguous space still to fill due in part to ahandful of tenants that were inherited when the JV bought theproperty in a $217-million deal for 2.75 million sf of EDS realestate in October 2005. EDS had leased 230,000 sf after the sale,but downsized to 120,000 sf over time, vacating the last of itsspace in three months ago.

After EDS moved out, Brownlee says Koll revamped the building'slobby and common areas and added a food-service shop and fitnesscenter. Plans are being drawn up to add a cafe-type shop to theother two buildings at 5320 and 5340 Legacy Dr. as well.

Brownlee says the decision to add more multi-tenant space ismortared in the activity that he's seen to date in the far northDallas submarket. "We have way more potential deals than we havespace," he says. "Any deal of any size is going to look at ourspace."
