HOUSTON-With an eye toward value-added opportunities,a local investment company has taken possession of twoforeclosed buildings totaling 40,500 sf at 14350 Chrisman Rd.Houston-based CRG Properties purchased the 35,000-sfwarehouse and 5,500-sf office building fromHouston-based Metro Bank, which foreclosed on theproperties about 18 months ago from KHK Scaffolding.

“These buildings are in tough shape,” says JayJenckes, an associate with Grubb & Ellis Co. whorepresented Metro Bank in the transaction along withThad Hickman and Tyndall Yapp. “They will need work.”

Jenckes tells GlobeSt.com that CRG Properties plans tospend about $200,000 to renovate and reposition the1970s-era buildings, which are situated on 4.5 acresnear Hardy Tollroad and Beltway 8. The warehouseboasts a five-ton crane, a 10-ton crane and 20-toncrane. “There’s not a lot of crane-served buildingsout there,” he notes.

The buildings were originally listed at $950,000, butduring escrow they were broken into and stripped oftheir copper wiring and air conditioning units, amongother things, Jenckes says. As a result, the listprice dropped. According to the Harris CountyAppraisal District, the buildings are worth $668,700.

CRG Properties purchased the buildings as part of a1031 exchange and paid cash to close the transaction.The firm was represented by Eric Hughes ofHouston-based National Realty Group.
