HOUSTON-After signing a 252,000-sf lease with Ford Motor Co. in May, the massive 1.3-million-sf Alamo Crossing Commerce Center in northwest Houston has signed on San Francisco-based JFC International Inc. for seven years and 60,118 sf. Michael E. Burrichter, principal with Alamo Crossing’s Los Angeles-based owner, CB Richard Ellis Strategic Partners, LP tells GlobeSt.com the JFC International and Ford leases have taken the project to 30% occupancy.

Burrichter says talks are in progress for several other substantial leases at the 63-acre industrial park.

JFC International Inc. is part of the Kikkoman Group. The firm distributes more than 8,500 different Asian food products throughout the US including labels such as Dynasty and Hapi. Burrichter says the firm is moving from a smaller location in Houston and needed not only larger accommodations, but a more sophisticated distribution facility.

Dave Nattrass, project manager with WM Dillard & Associates is handling the build-out for JFC. Other than the super-flat floors and 30-foot clear heights that are standard features in the Alamo Crossing project, JFC is using 4,200 sf of the space for offices, installing a 5,880-sf minus-20 freezer, installing a 2,500-sf cooler and creating 2,500-sf of cold dock space. Nattras says the space will be completed in late September or early October of this year.

WM Dillard & Associates completed the original construction of the $64-million Alamo Crossing project. While Ford is located in the 644,000-sf building A, JFC will be located in the 160,000-sf building D.

Billy Gold and Brendan Lynch of the Houston office of CB Richard Ellis are leasing the property on behalf of the owner. CB Richard Ellis Strategic Partners is a fund that gains its sponsorship from $9.8-billion investment manager CB Richard Ellis Investors LLC.
