FORT WORTH-As the year edges to a close, eight office tenants decide to stay put in 46,200 sf for plying their trades in the coming year. The largest renewal in the stack goes to KPMG, which recently signed for 21,000 sf at City Center Tower II, an 820,509-sf tower in the Fort Worth CBD.

George Duncan Jr. of City Center Development Co. worked out the five-year deal for the five-year tenant at 301 Commerce. The renewal keeps occupancy in the mid-90% range.

The Arthritis Centers of Texas renewed 11,293 sf at the Washington Tower at 712 N. Washington Ave. in Dallas. The 13-year tenant relocated within the building to consolidate offices, but took more space in doing so.

Building owner Washington Tower LP handled the renewal negotiations in house. John Shaunfield and Gianni LaBarba, both of Dallas-based Mohr Partners, brokered for the tenant.

In a 3,414-sf office pact, Duhamell Associates Inc. signed a short-term renewal at 2201 Brookhollow Plaza in Arlington. Michael Spain of TIG Real Estate Services in Dallas represented the building owner, Aberfeldy LP of Dallas, in the direct talks.

Also in Arlington, Therapeutic Family Life signed to stay in 2,401 sf at 1601 E. Lamar. Theron Bryant of SCM Real Estate Services in Arlington negotiated for the building owner, LSF II Lamar LP, in the direct negotiations.

In a 2,800-sf renewal and expansion, Official Paintball Games elected to stay at 552 W. Interstate 30 in Garland. The firm added 1,200 sf to its corporate office in a five-year pact worked out by Perry Jones of Property Advisers Realty Inc. of Irving and Merrell Moore of Rader Properties in Dallas.

In Frisco, Jones talked for Official Paintball in a 1,835-sf retail lease for space at the Centre at Preston Ridge. Steve Ewing of Dallas-based Preston partners represented the building owner. More retail sites are being eyed, Jones said.

Capstone Real Estate did a direct deal on a 1,905-sf office at the Embassy Building, a RREEF-owned building at 1431 Greenway in Irving. For the last two years, Capstone subleased the office from Lucent Technologies, but then did the rollover to coincide with the pact’s expiration, is told. Jones was the sole broker on the deal.

The engineering firm of Baird, Hampton & Brown renewed a 1,592-sf lease for Capital Tech Center at 1611 N. I-35 E in Carrollton. Brett French of Property Advisers Realty represented the building owner and Kendall Storie of NAI/Stoneleigh Huff Brous McDowell in Fort Worth spoke for the tenant.
