Trinity Habitat for Humanity buys property on FW's west side to relocate
FORT WORTH — Trinity Habitat for Humanity has bought a building off West Loop 820 and 4.6 acres of land where it plans to consolidate its Fort Worth operations early next year.
The nonprofit recently bought an 11,390-square-foot building at 2801 West Loop 820 that sits on about 2 acres and an adjacent 2.65-acres, said Gage YagerÖ , executive director. The acquisition comes as part of the organization’s $3.4 million capital campaign that began about two years ago, he said.
Following some renovations, the building will become Trinity’s new offices and a 10,000-square-foot warehouse/barn will be added to allow the group to consolidate from a 5,300-square-foot office at 3345 S. Jones St., and an 8,000-square-foot warehouse about a half-block away, Yager said.
"We’ve been here a long time and we are out of space," Yager said. "It’s a very different and better setting," he said of the new site.
The building and 2-acres was sold by Ten Trec, Ltd., which operated a computer company there since 1997. The remaining land was sold by Service King.
Gary Vasseur with Coldwell Banker Commercial Searcy Vasseur Group negotiated the transaction.
Yager said the organization, which builds and rehabs homes in Johnson, Parker, Tarrant and Wise Counties, hopes to move into the new building in late spring. It also plans to build a model Habitat for Humanity home on the site.
The group has raised $1.8 million of the campaign,Yager said. Some of that money was used to buy a building on Mayfield Road in Arlington where Trinity Habitat operates a ReStore store.
