NKF and E. Smith Advisors (ESA), the brokerage firm founded by former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith, arranged a 50,000-square-foot headquarters lease renewal for Istation, a provider of electronic education services. The company is based at Haberman & Haberman’s 322,382-square-foot Campbell Centre in Dallas.
Smith was instrumental in facilitating the relationship between NKF and Istation. NKF’s strategic partnership with ESA led to NKF executive managing director John Wolf and director Sara Fredericks representing Istation in the renewal.
“Because of the tenant’s size and impact on Campbell Centre occupancy, Istation’s decision to evaluate a relocation or renewal was observed closely by the market,” said Wolf. “This transaction was successful on behalf of our tenant in terms of mitigating increased costs as well as beneficial for the Central Expressway submarket, overall. The transaction illustrates how economics can still outperform amenity packages and allows Istation to increase operational efficiency and continue to innovate on behalf of their client base.”
