Texas Star

1205 Texas Star Parkway, Euless, Texas 76040



Property Overview:

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is the 4th busiest airport in the US and the 8th busiest in the world, so any industrial property near it usually commands strong interest.

Texas Star is just that… an older (constructed in 1984) multi-tenant four building industrial flexible property comprising 78,423 square foot of gross lettable area on 4.69 acres.

Acquired at $50.56 per square foot, this is a substantial discount compared with Riverview and Powerhouse that were both bought at >$70 per square foot..

The property is expected to provide strong immediate cash flow as it is 92% leased as at purchase date.

Further Notes:

Currency: All numbers are shown in USD. Returns shown have not been translated into Australian dollars as the exchange rate varies. A AUD:USD exchange rate below AUD1:USD1 will increase the percentage return. A AUD:USD exchange rate in excess of AUD1:USD1 will decrease the return.

Management costs: Returns shown above include US management costs, but exclude the management fee charged by the Responsible Entity (1.98% per annum of Gross Assets).

Returns: Returns prior to the property being stabilized are expected to be lower than those forecast above as once off due diligence costs are absorbed, and as less income is received from vacancies as at purchase date.
