Star-Telegram finalizes sale of printing plant

The Star-Telegram has closed a deal selling its printing plant facilities off Hemphill Street and Interstate 20 in Edgecliff Village to a company owned by Bruce Conti, president of Conti Warehouses in Fort Worth.

Conti-Edgecliff-Sias bought the nearly 270,000-square-foot building and 38 acres where the Star-Telegram had been printed since 1986.

The paper is now printed at The Dallas Morning News’ facility in Plano, which also prints The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

Terms of the deal are not being disclosed.

Employees who worked at the printing plant have moved to the newspaper’s downtown offices at 808 Throckmorton St., where it leases more than 75,000 square feet.

Conti is known for buying large warehouse buildings and repositioning them in the market. Last year, he and J. Searcy bought the 353,643-square-foot Walls Industries building at 301 Risinger Road.
He also owns a former grocery warehouse at Loop 820 and I-20, the Village Creek Business Park in southeast Fort Worth, the former Target store on Cherry Lane in White Settlement, the former Ranch Style Beans plant downtown, the former Levitz Furniture building on Camp Bowie Boulevard and the former Sam’s Club warehouse on Baker Boulevard in Richland Hills.

Todd Burnette and Matt Montague of Jones Lang LaSalle represented the Star-Telegram in the lease. Jamie Galati, also of JLL, represented the landlord, RYLB FW Properties.

Former Ranch Style Beans plant near downtown Fort Worth leased to sports equipment maker

August 23, 2013
Dollamur, a maker of sports surfaces and mats, has moved from the Village Creek area in southeast Fort Worth to the former Ranch Style Beans plant near downtown.

Dollamur, founded in 1996, leased 131,095 square feet at the facility, 1743 El Paso St., from Conti Warehouses, said Ryan Wood, a Conti vice president. Conti Warehouses is a Fort Worth-based commercial real estate firm that bought the landmark property in March 2012 from Allens Canning Co. 

Dollamur CEO Gary MacDowell said the move allowed the company to consolidate three locations under one roof, completed at the end of May. The company has 80 employees working there, he said. 

Dollamur makes competition and practice mats for wrestling, gymnastics, cheerleading, martial arts, and health and fitness. Its products are sold worldwide.

The company also has a plant in China to serve markets in China, Japan and South Korea, MacDowell said. That facility has 18 employees. 

The interior was remodeled before the company moved, MacDowell said. By mid-2014, the company expects to install a sign on the exterior where the iconic Ranch Style sign once was, he said. 

Allens Canning bought the property from ConAgra in May 2010 but closed the plant at the end of 2011. ConAgra idled its operations there in early 2010 and moved production of Ranch Style Beans to other states. 

The plant opened in 1913 as Great Western Foods. ConAgra acquired Ranch Style Beans in 2000. 

Conti Warehouses owns more than 2 million square feet of commercial and industrial space in Fort Worth.
