Hutto, TX —

AQUILA Commercial today announced the sale of Innovation Business Park Building III to Dogwood Industrial Properties (Dogwood), a platform backed by TPG Real Estate Partners, that acquires, owns, and operates high-quality, infill, multi-tenant industrial assets in strategic, growth-oriented metropolitan markets. Dogwood acquired the property from Titan Development, the building’s developer. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“We’re excited to announce Dogwood’s entry into the Austin industrial market with our acquisition at Innovation Business Park,” said David Sibley, Manager of Acquisitions with Dogwood. “Completed just months ago, the park offers an ideal location for manufacturers and distributors looking for open, modern space within one of Texas’ fastest-growing metro areas. We look forward to supporting further development of the property and to expanding our footprint in the region.”

Located at 1150 New Technology Boulevard in Hutto, Texas, Innovation Business Park III is a brand-new Class A industrial asset. The asset is part of a six-building development from Titan Development. The 152,234-sf industrial building was delivered in Q4 2020 in shell condition and is ready for tenant improvements. The property is 62% leased to EDC Moving Systems with 58,262 square feet still available for lease.

“We are seeing sustained and rapid industrial growth along the I-35 corridor which signals that Austin’s industrial real estate story is just getting started,” said Joe Iannacone, Vice President of Development for Titan Development. “With major companies announcing acquisitions in Austin almost daily, we expect larger market shifts towards e-commerce, and domestic manufacturing will continue to drive increased demand for Class A industrial product in Hutto, and other nearby industrial parks.”

“Hutto is an emerging business community that’s a great fit for industrial tenants of all types. The location along 130 allows for easy distribution to major Texas cities including Dallas, Houston and San Antonio,” says Omar Nasser, Vice President with AQUILA. “Companies can also access the growing talent pool in the broader Austin area, as well as affordable housing options for employees.”

“Companies considering the Austin area will find Hutto a great option. The City of Hutto has a number of incentives available, and the area offers a Triple Freeport exemption to qualified groups,” says Leigh Ellis, Principal with AQUILA.

Omar Nasser, Blake Patterson and Leigh Ellis, SIOR of AQUILA Commercial represented the seller and buyer in the transaction.
